I'm a Psychotherapist in practice for 27 years. Over this time, my work has expanded from traditional, solution-focused talk-therapy to include the principles of Energy Psychology as well as Traditional Chinese Medicine.
My passion is collaborating with people to develop a practice that gives them agency over their healing and self-care. I trust that within every person lives a natural ability to heal. In support of this, I introduce various therapies and techniques like Brainspotting, the principles of Internal Family Systems, EFT Tapping, and Havening, to allow gentle processing of emotional and physical traumas and adverse life events. This opens the door for them to experience more joy, comfort, ease, and resilience.
I first encountered Thought Field Therapy (TFT) many years ago. Although I found it promising, I didn't quite know how to introduce it into my work, and didn't have much support for developing my own TFT practice. As might be expected, my use of TFT fell by the wayside.
A few years later, a colleague needing some storage space asked me to stow a number of books on Emotional Freedom Techniques (a.k.a., "EFT Tapping"). Knowing this practice was influenced by TFT, I bought one to bring on a weekend trip. I had some powerful results from my weekend of practicing EFT Tapping, and the rest is history.
I consider myself a learner, and have continued to explore, research, and get certified in various therapies and techniques that can compliment traditional talk-therapy, including Brainspotting, the Principles of Internal Family Systems, Havening and Qi Gong. Over time, I have integrated these practices into my approach as a therapist. I've seen their value—both in and out of my office—and they are now an integral part of my work with individuals and groups, as well as my own personal practice.
Please reach out if you are interested in booking a Brainspotting session, signing up for one of my workshops on EFT Tapping, or scheduling a Qi Gong lesson.
