About Me & My Practice

I am a specialist in EMDR, a therapeutic approach using bilateral eye movements. This is a therapy that replicates REM sleep. That is when you are in REM sleep, you process the days events with bilateral eye movements. Often events, especially upsetting events, get stuck with the same feelings and emotions that occur at the time. Using EMDR, these events get reprocessed and are no longer disturbing. EMDR can treat most problems including anxiety,depression, complicated grief, abuse, eating disorders, and addictions. Often there are irrational beliefs that people develop as a result of life's experiences. These beliefs are what we target to help you to get unstuck and be more productive in your life. I have been trained in both psychodynamic theory and cognitive behavioral theoory. I combine these theories in my use of EMDR.
