Welcome! Most clients in my practice struggle with relationship problems, shame, dissociation and a compromised ability to self-regulate. These symptoms are developed during formative and pervasive attachment experiences, where the child was wounded. Their crucial developmental milestones were not met, and they didn’t receive the support they needed to flourish.
I strive to accompany clients- with exquisite attunement and compassion- as they approach their inner life in the context of a safe and nurturing other, perhaps for the first time.
Good therapy is restorative. EMDR therapy ideally encompasses an integrative psychotherapy approach to help the person be fully present with themself and others.
I have a specialty practice focusing on intimacy disorders and the trauma associated with betrayal and sexual compulsivity. I offer extended sessions (2-4 hours) as well as, 1-3 day Intensives. For more information, please visit my website at: www.recoveryofselfcounseling.com
