I work from a Somatic Integration and Processing (SIP) perspective, thus interpreting the symptoms and behaviors of my clients through a trauma-focused and nervous system lens. I have considerable experience incorporating ego state work, polyvagal theory, and attachment into my EMDR practice, which comprehensively conceptualizes overall functioning and helps you achieve lasting relief.
When emotional injuries are unable to heal on their own, they predispose us to the development of depression, anxiety, and addictive disorders. This is particularly true of emotional injuries resulting from traumatic events or chronic stressful experiences from our childhood. The goal is to heal these types of emotional injuries and gain insight into the way they affect our current patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving.
