 My sessions are collaborative; together we focus on goals and ideas for change. New strategies or perspectives can be implemented in the office with dialogue and imagery exercises.It is possible to decrease detrimental thoughts and decrease the charge that is connected to traumatic experiences. I have implemented Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) since 2003 and have successfully treated clients who have experienced trauma, neglect, or complex grief in order to desensitize disturbing thoughts and memories.
