I work in a collaborative way to create and implement a customized approach for each client. I have training in a variety of traditional and complementary treatment and healing methods, including Cognitive-Behavioral and Systemic methodologies (Couples, Families and small organizations), Humanistic-Existential approaches, and specific methods and techniques such as:
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
Clinical Hypnosis, LifeSpan Integration (LI)
Neuro Emotional Technique (NET)
Tapas Acupressure Technique (TAT)
Psychological Kinesiology (PSYCH-K)
Some of the modalities I use have research findings supporting their use. Others are still too new, or the research is sparse or non-existent. My clients are welcomed to ask questions about their treatment/healing choices and are given the option to opt out of any modality they find unconvincing. However, I have found talk therapy to be slower and have more potential for side effects than any of the alternative/complementary technologies I use.
Although I value my extensive training and continue to strive for excellence in the technical aspects of my work, I have come to understand that healing really happens because of the connection and safety inherent in the relationship that my clients and I create together. To be able to create strong relationships requires continuous work on oneself. This is my pledge to you: I will keep working to stay balanced, clear, and informed, so I can serve you with skill and integrity. I will do my best to help you help yourself heal. And if you think I can do better, I will listen to you with the respect you deserve.
