Treatment Approach

I use a strength-based approach that honors the person's system and therapeutic goals. When appropriate, I incorporate modified EMDR Therapy (both for memory processing, development of empathy/compassion within a system, and other areas of focus), Deep Brain Reorienting (DBR), and draw on clinical hypnosis to help with tasks like internal world development and internal communication. Safety and stabilization, and development of internal communication and/or internal world development are some of the primary focal points in my clinical work.
