Mood Disorders

Trauma and Addiction Recovery

Trauma, Stress, and PTSD

Mood disorders can refer to a wide range of conditions that may have a negative influence on mood, thoughts, and behaviors. Some disorders can cause profound sadness, mood swings, diminished self-esteem, isolation, and a pervasive sense of hopelessness. The impact may affect many areas of your life. 

Personalized and comprehensive care can guide you through the process of healing and sustaining change.

Trauma, Stress, and PTSD

Trauma and Addiction Recovery

Trauma, Stress, and PTSD

I help people heal from the aftermath of trauma, whether it was experienced days before, or decades ago. My work is guided by leading-edge developments in psychology which blend affect regulation, neuroscience, and attachment theory. I integrate evidenced-based and trauma-informed therapies to  help you deal with, and recover from the debilitating effects of physical, psychological or developmental trauma.  Things can change. You can heal and move on. 

Trauma and Addiction Recovery

Clinical Consultation

Integrative Psychotherapy

Trauma and Addiction Recovery

I provide individual and group consultation to licensed therapists seeking to expand and enhance their knowledge of EMDR and to integrate EMDR, Somatic Psychotherapy and other trauma-informed therapies into their work.

As an EMDR consultant, the consultation hours that EMDR-trained therapists receive with me post-training count towards your certification in EMDR. 

Integrative Psychotherapy

Integrative Psychotherapy

Integrative psychotherapy is a combined approach that brings together different elements of specific therapies. 

Therapy is uniquely tailored to your individual needs and personal circumstances, ensuring that all levels of your being and functioning (mental, physical, relational, and emotional health) are maximized to their full potential.

Complementary Therapy

Integrative Psychotherapy

Integrative Psychotherapy

Sometimes, talking alone is not enough to foster a sense of balance, and feelings of well-being we want to achieve. Mindfulness, relaxation training, and yoga therapy are some of the complementary approaches I incorporate into clinical practice as the need arises. I have decades of experience in interweaving complementary therapies into psychotherapy practice, with continuing positive results.
