Tools I Use

Overview

I use EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), Somatic Experiencing (SE), and Emotional Brain Training (EBT) along with respectful listening and interaction with you to help you resolve past hurts, understand yourself better, and make the changes you want to make. I also make use of guided imagery, creative expression, and other tools to open your awareness to what’s underlying your conscious experience.


Here's some more information about EMDR, SE, and EBT:

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing)

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing): a therapeutic intervention proven to be effective in addressing a variety of issues that stem from upsetting events. It includes focus on emotions, thoughts, and body sensations. EMDR involves talking about a symptom or an event in a particular way, holding certain information about the issue in your mind and just noticing what happens while experiencing alternating bilateral stimulation (beeps or taps). I am a certified EMDR therapist. Having a big sale, on-site celebrity, or other event? Be sure to announce it so everybody knows and gets excited about it. 


For more information visit EMDR Network's website www.emdrnetwork.org, which is focused on providing information to consumers. 

Somatic Experiencing (SE)

Somatic Experiencing (SE): a body-oriented approach to resolving and healing trauma as well as releasing stress and tension held in the body. It involves focusing on body sensations and addressing issues on the level of your physical self. For more information, visit the Foundation for Human Enrichment website: www.traumahealing.com. 

Emotional Brain Training (EBT)

Emotional Brain Training (EBT): teaches basic skills for taking care of yourself emotionally, nurturing yourself and setting effective limits for yourself. Being able to do this brings emotional balance and turns off the drive to excess through eating, smoking, people pleasing, working, etc.
