"The goal is not to make psychotherapy "faster". 

Psychotherapy is about slowing things down - so we can begin to serve and understand the pattered that otherwise happen quickly, without rifle lion or awareness".

The goals of psychotherapy is to insert spaces for reflection where they have not previously existed and thereby create opportunities to know ourselves more fully, connect with others more deeply, and live more con greatly".

EMDR and Creativity

Artists, graphic artists, writers, business people, people that seem to "have it together" sometimes suffer from symptoms of trauma, depression or anxiety. They can experience impairment or loss of function.  We tend to separate our daily performance problems from professional tasks. EMDR processing is instrumental in healing trauma-based blocks.   In order to achieve an effective targeting and processing, it is important to identify, explore and understand those blocks, to finally  bring new adaptive behaviors to the future. EMDR is also applied to procrastination, fear of failure, and the reprocessing of actual setbacks. Our specialization will help guide and inspire you to achieve more of your personal and professional goals.

EMDR and Performance Anxiety / Creative Blocks

I integrate EMDR with positive psychology, somatic interventions, mindfulness, and other therapeutic strategies to aid in the reduction of performance anxiety experienced by creative and performing artists, test takers, and public speakers.  EMDR serves by unblocking and enhancing creativity. It also helps to incorporate healthy behaviors and habits, improve performance at the work place, and develop healthy relationship with ourselves.

NATURAL PROCESSING and somatic interventions

Somatic EMDR

Slowing down, and sustained awareness: Natural Processing” is a somatically-based process-oriented therapy. The foundation of this work is a deep understanding of our “drive for completion,” on every level.  Inherent dilemmas arise in many forms, such as competition between “drives for completion” and “drives for survival”.  Full engagement in the dynamics that are evident, moment-by-moment, with a strong somatic focus brings the details to life through processing. Use of bilateral stimulation further enhances the client’s ability to grow towards resolution.
