I became a therapist as a second career, having spent fifteen years working in the field of information technology. I also have a background in the arts, so my work is influenced both by a practical, rational approach as well as an intuitive, creative stance.
I use EMDR in conjunction with other modalities, such as Focusing and Hakomi, which work with awareness in the present moment, resource building, and somatic (body) experience. I like to adjust to each client’s overall needs and also to whatever is happening that particular day. It is important for clients to know that while EMDR is a very powerful tool, that it is specialized. Especially in the preparation phase, the therapy might look and feel like talk therapy, with EMDR processing interspersed.
I specialize in the treatment of adult ADHD.
