An Integrative Approach to Healing
In my first career as a translator I learned the importance of deep listening and attention to language. My interest in psychology grew out of a fascination with people and cultures, as well as a profound interest in healing. My graduate studies at the California Institute of Integral Studies guided me to a mind/body approach to psychotherapy that utilizes EMDR Therapy and the Hakomi Method as powerful tools for processing and integration. I find both of these methods very effective in helping many clients to process and release difficult or traumatic memories, emotions and beliefs that seem to be "stuck" in their systems. EMDR Therapy helps many of my clients to free themselves from the defensive patterns and limiting beliefs that can result from various kinds of traumatic experiences or emotional wounding in childhood. Clients who are able to process and release these "blocking beliefs" often experience greater aliveness, creativity and fulfillment in their lives. I am grateful for the privilege of being entrusted with details of client's emotional lives and feel immeasurably enriched by our work together toward healing and growth.
