A feeling of safety is a key element to psychological health. The therapeutic profession has known for many years that empathetic relationships, where someone listens without judgment and strives for understanding, cultivates a sense of safety which can be profoundly healing.
Whether you are struggling with overwhelming emotions, relationship issues, traumatic experiences, or simply striving to improve your personal development – we will work together towards the goals you wish to achieve positive changes for your life.
The human individual is among the most complex things in the universe. Scientists have found there are more connections between the neurons in a single brain than there are stars in the galaxy. It is perfectly OK not to understand how to improve your life situation, but know wherever you are at, it can be done! It takes courage to ask for help, and that is what I am here to do.
I primarily work with adults and mainly utilize three therapeutic frameworks.
(1) The humanistic framework, as being formally trained in this makes it the foundation of my outlook. This perspective recognizes that by fostering a therapeutic alliance based on authentic connection, empathy, and unconditional positive regard, we can support healing from past psychological and relational wounds and see to fostering the growth of the individual.
(2) “Parts work”, drawing from methods such as Ego State Therapy, Internal Family Systems Therapy, and Jungian psychology, is a method which supports developing mindfulness and insight into the psychodynamic patterns of the “parts” of our conscious and unconscious personality. With this method we organize the mind, which in turn supports the organization of the brain.
(3) Neurofeedback on the other hand is a technological intervention, and by utilizing what is called the arousal-regulation model we can use operant conditioning to gently increase or decrease certain brainwave frequencies on various sites of the head to calm the nervous system and support neurological flexibility into improve states of mind. With this method we organize the brain, which in turn supports the organization of the mind.
Together, by working on organization of both the brain and the mind in tandem, within the safety of the therapeutic relationship, we can efficiently and effectively work towards reducing any emotional dysregulation you might have and improve various aspects of your mental health.
