I'm a Psychotherapist in practice for over 25 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 clients to develop a practice that gives them agency over their self-care. In support of each client's individual needs, I introduce various therapies and techniques that bring the agents of change into their daily lives. Using advanced techniques like Brainspotting and EFT Tapping, I support them as they process emotional and physical traumas and adverse life experiences, allowing them to live with more comfort, ease, and resilience. This freedom allows my clients to become the authors of their own life story.
I first encountered Thought Field Therapy (TFT) many years ago. Although I found it promising, I didn't quite know how to introduce it to clients, and didn't have much support for developing my own TFT practice. As might be expected, my use of it 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 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 clients.
As I introduce these techniques to clients, I work with them to find which combination of practices they find most useful—much as one builds a list of ingredients to create a delicious dish. In this way, I help them create their unique recipe for health, wellness, resilience, and joy.
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.
