Adverse life events (traumas) have knocked me down and there have been times I could not get back up, without help.
In 2009, I remember seeing a therapist who helped me feel that there wasn’t something wrong with me… Something wrong happened to me. We used EMDR to help me move through those traumas so that I could live in the present moment, not in the past.
I received my Basic EMDR Training in 2013 and since then have helped numerous clients resolve their distress using EMDR Therapy. In 2014, I discovered my love of yoga and read about how it helps those struggling with complex PTSD in Bessel van der Kolk’s book, The Body Keeps the Score. I completed a 300 hour certification in trauma sensitive yoga to support client’s with complex trauma to claim their body before processing traumas using EMDR.
Now my focus is offering consultation for therapists offering EMDR Therapy to their clients to support their journey moving on from the grips of the past and feeling embodied in the here and now with agency, compassion and joy.
