Solution focused therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy are the primary therapies I utilize when counseling with each individual client, couple or family as they focus on the present and work toward an improved future. I have found that other therapeutic interventions such as Neurofeedback, Psychotherapy, Hypnotherapyoften and E.M.D.R enhance some basic therapeutic techniques.
Neurofeedback is a therapeutic training tool that helps to exercise, strengthen, calm, and stabilize the brain. Using special computer-generated games, the brain learns to adjust certain brainwave activities for improved functioning. Over time, the brain learns to function with greater control and stability. This non-invasive, drug-free, safe, and effective form of treatment helps to create healthy brain functioning. Cited by numerous research studies, neurofeedback has helped people with many conditions when no other therapies seem to work.
Hypnotism is becoming an increasingly popular and effective way for people to combat health problems against that which they often have little or no control. For those in search of better physical or mental health, it is equally important that hypnotism is becoming increasingly accepted by the medical establishment and is certified as a treatment by the American Psychiatric Association.
Psychotherapy is one of the best investments you can make as an individual, couple, or family to ensure leaving this world a better place than when you arrived.
I believe in the power of change; not towards what you are not, but rather towards accepting all that you are. I understand the pain and loneliness that occurs when shame, guilt, anger, disappointment and loss become overwhelming. I feel that psychotherapy is a collaborative experience, and that we participate in a journey together. The therapeutic relationship provides opportunities to examine past and current relationships with others and with the Self.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a comprehensive, integrative method of individual psychotherapy in which the therapist guides the client through a procedure to access and resolve troubling experiences and emotions. The underlying premise of EMDR is that panic and anxiety experiences are processed differently by the brain than are usual experiences.
EMDR is most commonly used to address emotional disturbance related to disturbing or traumatic events such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). In addition to reactions to trauma, EMDR is used to help troubling symptoms such as anxiety, depression, guilt, and anger. It can also be used to enhance emotional resources such as confidence and self-esteem.
