Psychotherapy

Individual Psychotherapy for Adult Individuals

I provide therapy for adults with a wide variety of concerns.   Most often, people do not request a particular type of therapy, and  I will consult with you to make a treatment plan just for you, based on your situation and goals.  Some people may be particularly searching for a therapist with training and expertise in one or more of the following methods:

AEDP – Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy

this method comes from an in-depth understanding of stages of healing, well-grounded in clinical experience. It invites intentionally and purposefully doing more of what works in therapy, as we already have innate capacities to heal.

EMDR – Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing

A strongly evidence-based protocol, useful and efficient when current symptoms may be influenced by a recent or long-ago loss or trauma, this method activates resources from both hemispheres of the brain, for “adaptive information processing”.

FSAP – Feeling-State Addiction Protocol

A specialized version of EMDR, used to help gain control over compulsive or addictive behaviors, such as food-related behaviors, compulsive gambling or shopping.   This method generally does not require abstinence from the behavior to be the goal, but helps the individual regain a freedom of choice.

Clinical Hypnosis:

seeks to invite a relaxed state, which can be healthful in itself, but also can be the starting point for accessing a wealth of “right brain” resources, including imagery and metaphor, which may be useful in healing.
