I’ve found that effective therapy often calls for a combination of different therapeutic tools and approaches to fit your individual needs. In my over 20 years of practice I’ve come to rely on an approach that is more flexible and individualized rather than relying on a single traditional form of psychotherapy.
I am trained and experienced in a variety of approaches that are well researched and effective. These include third wave behavioral approaches (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Compassion Focused Therapy), EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), and Ego State Therapy (such as Internal Family Systems).
Many people I work with have experienced inadequate care, emotional neglect, or abuse in their childhoods. As a result they often struggle with symptoms that are confusing, long lasting, and painful – symptoms like anxiety, depression, panic, relationship and intimacy difficulties, stress, fear, self-doubt, insecurity and isolation. These symptoms usually don’t go away on their own and often get worse over time.
Integrative therapy can help you begin to make sense of confusing symptoms and get free from stuck patterns that make things worse over time. Together we can help you find new ways to relieve distressing symptoms and start engaging in a more rich, full and meaningful life.
