Individual therapy, or talk therapy, is the traditional form of therapy most people think of when they talk about therapy. In individual therapy, we will work on both developing techniques to gain control of negative thoughts as well as understanding from where those thoughts come. Through addressing the issues through both of these methods, we will treat symptoms of depression, anxiety, stress, guilt, shame, eating and weight issues, low self-esteem, trauma, and relationship issues.
Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (SP)
Sensorimotor Psychotherapy™ is a body-centered approach that aims to treat the somatic (body) symptoms of unresolved trauma; trauma as a result of sexual or physical abuse, emotional abuse, accidents, death, and more. While traditional talk therapies utilize the words of a person as the entry point for treatment, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy depends on the bodily experiences of the individual as a gateway to awareness and improved mental health.
Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART)
ART is a rapid eye movement technique, used for rapid recovery of past pains, hurst, and trauma. It’s used to resolve intense emotion and physical feelings caused/triggered by trauma within 1-5 sessions. Typically this rapid recovery type of therapy is used for isolated traumatic events. The success of ART is that it can repaint past trauma thereby releasing the person from the pain they’ve carried for a life-time.
Polyvagal Theory offers understanding of our autonomic nervous system and how its actions influence human behavior. Through a Polyvagal Lens, we can help clients recognize and resolve trauma, find safety in human connection, and build skills to take the risks of living fully.
Mindfulness is the simple, but not easy, process of intentionally being in the moment without judgment. Mindfulness has been shown and proven to help with anxiety, depression, stress, negative thoughts, food issues, poor self-esteem, and more.
Teletherapy is therapy, but through video conferencing. Exactly as we would create a helping and trusting relationship in the office, we would do the same via video. Just like you would FaceTime or Skype with friends or family, we will use VSee* to connect, regardless of where you are. And the same as if you were in the office, Teletherapy** is generally covered by your insurance (I will check with your insurance prior to our first appointment).
*VSee is HIPAA compliant, reliable, and safe. www.vsee.com. In addition to VSee, all you’ll need is either a computer or smartphone, reliable internet connection, and space that is quiet and feels safe to you.
**Teletherapy isn’t a substitute to traditional face-to-face therapy.
