Group therapy is highly recommended as a complimentary support to individual therapy services. Groups provide the opportunity to practice and build on coping and communication skills, boundary setting and key techniques and experiments that are being learned in individual sessions, in a safe environment. Group therapy allows the participants to build a supportive community with individuals on a similar healing journey and it allows the common feelings experienced during this process to take place in a supportive community. Group topics are curated based on identified needs of the community accompanied by action steps that allow for realistic implementation in society.
When becoming overwhelmed and/or feeling stuck emotionally or unable to achieve goals because of repetitive beliefs, behaviors, ruminating thoughts, disturbing physical symptoms and unhealthy ways of coping, as a Trauma and EMDR therapist, we will use EMDR therapy to allow your brain to reprocess experiences that are stopping you from living your full life. As an EMDR therapist, I am able to assist clients who experience trauma symptoms, severe depression, anxiety, OCD, pain and addiction with reprocessing memories and ongoing life stressors that do not allow clients to cope in a healthier way and live a full life. Clients who have memories that are actively disturbing their present lives; ranging from lived experiences in unsafe communities, childhood traumas, racism and injustices., EMDR can remove or drastically decrease disturbing symptoms being experienced.
When participating in Gestalt therapy, we will focus on your present experience. Your present experience will not focus on your thoughts; you will learn to listen to what your body is experiencing and communicating to you. As you practice mindfulness and awareness, with this therapy model, it will allow you to understand yourself in a holistic manner and to make decisions from a space of wholeness; where your body and mind is aligned. This alignment will allow you to learn to cope with heightened emotions, symptoms being experienced and to better manage challenging situations. This style of therapy prompts exploration, experimenting and the practicing of what you will learn in therapy in real life situations. You get to practice being curious, you get to experience full and all emotions, and to challenge feeling stuck when it's experienced, while still processing lived experiences from childhood to your present self.
You may already have a therapist, but are feeling stuck or not seeing a decrease in your symptoms. You do not need to leave the therapist you enjoy working with. We can introduce EMDR therapy to overcome key challenges that may be getting in the way of your therapeutic journey, and allow you to successfully meet your therapeutic goals without the disturbing symptoms stunting your progress while still receiving the support of your therapist.
I am a Certified Clinical Supervisor that believes good supervision supports and assists the provider with gaining the knowledge and confidence needed to provide quality care. You will understand the power of your self-care and I will challenge you to be curious, identify your blindspots and utilize your values and authenticity, to provide quality care and decrease personal burnout. You will learn key skills that will assist you with helping your clients meet their therapeutic goals and will help you manage agency politics and challenges. Supervision sessions will be an hour.
It is important that you work for a board approved agency, that will consent for you to receive outside supervision. Individual and/or group supervision will take place on a weekly basis. You will be responsible for tracking your hours and I will be responsible for completing and signing your documentation.
