I offer therapy to ANYONE in the state of Oregon using a virtual platform, which means you can work with me from the comfort of your own space. Therapy appointments are scheduled for up to 60 minutes and you will be provided a link prior to each appointment.
During the first session, I will ask you several questions such as: What brings you to therapy? Have you been in therapy before? What do you hope to gain from our work together? How will you know when you are done with therapy? After learning about you, we will collaborate to identify therapy goals and will use our therapy sessions to work towards those goals.
Our therapy sessions will provide a safe space to navigate stressors, heal from trauma, develop coping skills, set healthy boundaries, build communication strategies, create new healthy habits, and much more.
EMDR (Trauma/PTSD Therapy)
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing is a proven type of therapy to help people process and integrate traumatic memories and difficult life experiences that interfere with life. Developed in the 1980's by Francine Shapiro, EMDR uses the brain’s natural ability to heal itself (just as cut on your arm heals, your brain can do the same).
As your therapist, I will assist you by targeting distressing memories as well as unwanted thoughts and will lead you in rapid eye movements or tapping to reduce distress related to painful memories.
EMDR is known to
treat Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
decrease anxiety and panic
decrease fears and phobias
The ancient practice of Yoga can be incorporated into therapy to support the treatment of trauma, anxiety, depression and more. Yoga, meaning “yoke” or “union” is a mental, physical and spiritual practice allowing the body and mind to connect. Meditation and movement is known to decrease stress, promote relaxation and even support physical health and chronic pain. Gentle movements, poses and breathwork may be incorporated by request, just ask!
