Trauma is an emotional wound from a person's past that subconsciously interferes with everyday life. I treat trauma in individuals, couples, and families. I see clients of all cultural backgrounds, gender and sexual orientations, and age (6 yrs+). In a one-on-one individual setting, I address trauma to improve self-esteem, productivity, mindfulness, and overall fulfillment. For couples, I treat underlying emotional issues to increase couple intimacy. In a family setting, I help parents understand how underlying trauma can affect their parenting to more strongly connect with their children.
I use EMDR (eye movements desensitization and reprocessing), TF-CBT (trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy), and EFT (emotionally focused therapy to help all my clients heal, overcome their emotional baggage, and find renewed happiness and confidence. I have over ten years of experience treating trauma and I attest to its effectiveness and lasting success. To schedule an appointment, contact me at 949-954-0750.
