What is EMDR?
"Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an extensively researched, effective psychotherapy method proven to help people recover from trauma and other distressing life experiences, including PTSD, anxiety, depression, and panic disorders." - © 1995-2021 EMDRIA EMDR International Association.

What is the Flash Technique?
"The Flash Technique (FT) is a recently developed therapeutic intervention for reducing the disturbance associated with traumatic or other distressing memories. Unlike many conventional trauma therapy interventions, FT is a minimally intrusive option that does not require the client to consciously engage with the traumatic memory. This allows the client to process traumatic memories without feeling distress." - © 2020 Dr. Philip Manfield

What is Ego State Therapy?
You may have at times said, "there is a part of me that feels this way and a part of me that feels that way," or "on the one hand I think this, and on the other hand I think that." We all have different parts of ourselves that have different ages, thoughts, wants, needs, and behaviors. In Ego State Therapy, we will explore the various parts of you that contribute to the way you think, feel, behave, and experience the world. In this work, you and I will explore your parts' ages, functions, relationships, and needs. We will work towards a healthy integration, understanding, or nurturing of parts. We will spend time identifying and enhancing the oldest, wisest parts of you and healing the hurt, angry, or afraid parts so of you. Ego State Therapy pairs beautifully with EMDR and is another way of offering hope for a life filled with a sense of safety, stability, and structure.
What if I want a space just to talk?
My hope is to provide a space that feels supportive and safe. Sometimes you may need someone to hear, validate, and sit with you in your pain. Because I specialize in trauma and EMDR, I may view your current pain through the lens of your past experiences, but regardless of my interpretation, I am here to listen.
Will I learn coping skills?
Part of our work together will be learning and building realistic and individualized coping skills (or "resouces") and self-care into your routine and nervous system. Resourcing may include mindfulness exercises, communication skills, re-evaluation of sleep hygiene and daily routine, and reinforcing intrinsic strengths.
In conjunction with providing your nervous system with as many resources as it needs to feel more calm and present in and out of session, we will also work towards looking at the roots and patterns of your pain. If we can heal the roots, you won't need to work so hard to deal with how the pain shows up in your life.
