I have specialized training and several years of experience using each of the following treatment modalities. I offer different approaches depending on your individual needs.
Energy Psychology Methods:
Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT is a set of techniques utilizing nine of the body’s energy meridian points. I coach you on how to release psychological and emotional distress by using the fingertips to tap on these meridians while giving voice to the issue and using the breath.
AIT is a therapy that integrates talk therapy with a method of moving negative energy out of the body. I am specially trained in the use of standard protocols or steps which address the energy centers along the chakra system. We work to energetically clear the initiating issues, which are your current areas of distress, the originating occurrences from the past, and the energetic connections between them. In session, I coach you through these steps helping you experience immediate relief in the session, and I teach energy psychology techniques to use outside of session if desired.
Anthetic Therapy uses cutting-edge experiential techniques to help you identify different parts of yourself and the roles they play that affect your emotional experience. We have many parts of our psyche that operate mostly in an unconscious manner. In Anthetic Therapy, you will learn about these different parts and how to relate to them with consciousness and empathy.
We all have an “Inner Critic” that can get in the way of our ability to experience joy and causes a great deal of suffering. In therapy, with me, you will learn that you do not deserve to suffer and that you can minimize the power and influence of this Inner Critic.
The goals of Anthetic therapy include a sense of inner freedom and peace, radical self-acceptance and the inclusive growth of all parts of ourselves.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT):
DBT therapy is a skills-based approach that offers you the opportunity to cultivate effective coping skills using:
DBT is an immensely effective treatment for people in recovery from depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders, as well as addictions, codependency, and personality disorders. As your therapist I teach the skills in our sessions, but DBT is most effective when a group component is part of your treatment. I do not offer DBT groups at this time, yet I am an excellent resource for reinforcement and supportive maintenance if you have been in group DBT therapy before. DBT skills require practice and application inside and outside of our sessions. Therefore use of a workbook and homework assignments are likely to be part of your treatment plan.
