"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".

Jonathan Shedler

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

We integrate trauma treatment 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.


EMDR and Trauma

Trauma based events, specially those occurred in early years may negatively impact our present relationship with the world, and with ourselves. We end up selling us short on whatever opportunity life presents to us. Sometimes it is called "self-sabotage". You may have history of loss, abandonment, and mistreatment. And what may be traumatic for some individuals may not be for others. Sometimes it is difficult to pinpoint a situation from our early years that could be affecting our responses in the present.


EMDR and Well-being

There is a wealth of documented research on the applications of EMDR and positive psychology together. This approach helps you develop deep insight, specially in the areas of strengths. EMDR can be a powerful aid on changing, designing, and incorporating healthy behaviors, achieving wellness, developing fulfilling relationships, finding your passion, increasing productivity, setting and achieving your goals, academic success, increasing motivation and self-esteem, experiencing inspiration, and nurturing overall subjective wellbeing.
