Specializing in Trauma Related Issues
Trauma Resolution and Life Enrichment
EMDR Scripted Protocols (EMDR): Basics and Special Situations
EMDR Scripted Protocols (EMDR): Special Populations
I help individuals and couples work on trauma, psychological and relational issues and behaviors so that they can resolve them and enrich their lives. I have been a clinical psychologist since the mid-eighties and I view our work together as a collaborative process. This means I will begin by learning about and understanding you and your problem and we will figure out together what has contributed to your difficulties. The next step is to create a treatment plan tailored to you and your goal/s. Often, the plan will include ways for you to learn to manage and resolve the thoughts, feelings and behaviors that contribute to your problem; to increase your self-esteem; to resolve the blocks that you experience; to communicate your needs and wants related to your issue/s; to integrate them into your daily life and to access or re-access your joy and interest that often fades in the face of these difficulties.
My approach is based on my training in human development, EMDR, client-oriented, psychodynamic, somatic, systems psychotherapies, hypnosis, and biofeedback. My expertise includes treating issues related to early and recent trauma. I also address general psychological issues and problems such as relational and family issues, issues that arise through life transitions or setbacks that occur through personal illness and/or life catastrophes, and problems in identifying, managing and handling feelings such as distress, anger, shame, and fear.
I have been practicing Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) since 1992 and it is an integral part of my clinical practice. I am author and editor of 2 books on EMDR: Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Scripted Protocols: Basics and Special Situations and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Scripted Protocols: Special Populations.
