Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Do you feel distressed by events in your past that continue to trouble you in the present? Maybe you have nightmares or difficulty sleeping. You might feel overwhelmed, anxious, depressed or fearful. Do you frequently feel on edge, irritable and worried something bad is going to happen to you? You may have trouble making decisions. Perhaps you have difficulty getting along with others and feel frustrated by the quality of your relationships. Do you move from one difficult relationship to another? Or maybe you feel stuck and unhappy in your current relationship. Perhaps you have been a victim of childhood trauma or abuse or neglect. Maybe you have been sexually assaulted or involved in a traffic accident. Or you might be a veteran of the military who is suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or combat trauma. Whatever difficulties you are experiencing, as a therapist, I'd like to help. Through powerful and effective counseling approaches such as EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and the Trauma Resiliency Model, we can work together to help you recover from these issues and take back your life. Through the therapy process, you can begin to feel calmer, more relaxed and more confident about the choices you are making. Instead of feeling like your problems controlling you, you can feel like you are more effectively managing your life. Psychotherapy will help you heal from past hurts and traumas so they no longer bother you in the present. Through counseling, you will learn new tools and skills to more effectively live your life day to day. Through treatments such as EMDR and the Trauma Resiliency Model, you can begin to clear out the past and more fully embrace and enjoy your life in the present. You can begin to grow closer to others, and be more positive and happy in your life. Your relationships can become more satisfying and you can feel more in charge of your life. Together, through counseling, I will help you create a roadmap to healing that is right for you.

Services
As a therapist for over 32 years, I have helped people overcome difficult and traumatic experiences including childhood abuse and war trauma. In my therapy practice in the Santa Clarita Valley, I use cutting-edge counseling treatments that help create happiness and peace of mind. One of the treatments that I utilize is EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). EMDR is a powerful evidenced based practice that can change your life. EMDR has been recognized as an effective treatment by numerous organizations including the American Psychiatric Association and Department of Defense. EMDR is a comprehensive, integrative psychotherapy approach that can be used to treat trauma as well as many other problems such as anxiety, depression and phobias. I have witnessed with awe and inspiration the healing that takes place with EMDR treatment. EMDR can help you move beyond the distressing events in your past to live fully in the present. I also utilize a model called the Trauma Resiliency Model (TRM). This is a biologically based model for healing trauma. TRM works to build resiliency and restore balance to the body and mind after distressing or traumatic events. TRM can help to restore balance to your nervous system in a gentle way. TRM has been designed both as a trauma reprocessing treatment model as well as a self-care model. When you learn and practice the TRM skills, you can start to feel a greater sense of personal mastery and well-being. My goal is to create a compassionate, caring, and nurturing environment in which you feel safe and comfortable as you move through the therapeutic process and heal from past traumas and distressing events.
