Eye movement desensitization reprocessing
EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) We are energy!
Internal Family Systems (IFS)
(IFS informed) Working with the multiple aspects of ourselves that have been wounded and developing a new relationship and trust with our Self-energy.
EMDR is an evidenced-based therapy that facilitates the processing of traumatic stimuli, both big and little. This is an accelerated process that allows one to resolve traumatic memories and aversive felt sensations, to an adaptive resolution. EMDR allows a person who had traumatic experiences to come to a level of normal functioning again.
Low self-worth comes from a deep sense of separation from your internal source. Most people look outside themselves for their answers. We look to others to determine our worth based on what we do for a living, how we are perceived in our looks, and what we say. We are literally trying to meet other people’s expectations or someone else’s idea on a day-to-day basis. When was the last time you tuned-in and made a choice based on your inner knowing? What if you are actually free and don’t have to take responsibility for other people’s emotions?
Highly Sensitive People
Are you feeling other people’s emotions? Do you find it difficult to be in crowds? Are you drained after spending time in malls or with certain people? Has this affected your life and your well being? We are energetic beings. I help others learn to manage their energy without taking on other people’s energy.
There are many parts or “selves” that are within us. Using somatic techniques and caring we explore those inner parts that have been wounded and disowned. We explore within the shadow aspects of ourselves and with compassion, we heal.
Most of us are not even aware that we are not fully in our bodies. If you notice your thoughts, you are really either in the past or the future. This is what makes a muck out of life! The only true moment is NOW! The only way to get true inner knowledge is NOW. True knowing comes from within and not your brain!
Energy psychology is a family of alternative healing modalities that moves stuck energy within our energetic body. I use an approach called EFT (emotional freedom technique) which focuses on acupressure points in order to move energy that is inhibiting progress. I also, if appropriate, educate my clients about energy and use “energetic terms” to explain how energy works in the body and with others.
My Approach & Philosophy
We all have an authentic self! This self-energy is present within all of us, in the now moment. Think of yourself as the sun shining brightly. The sun is always there, but over time, clouds form due to our experiences of childhood, trauma, social environment and world environment. Our perception of ourself is shaped by these experiences. What happens over time is we think we are the clouds, when actually we are the sun. The sun shines brightly, even if we can’t feel it or see it through the clouds.
My goal as a therapist is to help my clients awaken to their true nature or their authentic self. This involves compassionately witnessing those disowned parts or aspects of themselves through a variety of techniques such as mindfulness and somatic practices. Other techniques include healing from attachment and trauma wounding such as: Internal Family Systems (IFS), EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), Grounding and centering techniques, and mindful awareness practices. This is about healing our traumas, both big and little so we have more meaningful relationships, peace, joy and purpose in our lives. Most importantly, it’s about being in the present moment and allowing your true knowing to lead your life.
