In therapy, I explore how to work on trauma issues including how the different modalities of trauma therapy heal trauma. I am a certified practitioner in NARM (NeuroAffective Relational Model), Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, and EMDR.
"The spontaneous movement in all of us is toward connection, health, and aliveness ....on the deepest level, just as a plant spontaneously moves moves toward sunlight, there is in each of us an impulse moving toward connection and healing."
Laurence Heller and Aline LaPierre
"What are the patterns that are preventing you from being present to yourself and others during this time of your life?" This question is explored in NARM therapy.
NARM therapy focuses on returning wellness to the unconscious patterns of disconnection/connection and regulation/dysregulation that affect emotions, physiology, behavior, and self esteem.
In NARM therapy you find resources to heal patterns in relationships that have not worked well for you. In the process of NARM therapy you discover agency, empowerment, and how to experience more joy and fulfillment.

In Sensorimotor Psychotherapy the process explores how developmental tasks were successfully accomplished or if limitation cause struggles in beliefs, feelings, self image, thoughts, and behavioral patterns.
To address developmental struggles, the process of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy is primarily with discovering meaning through the body, exploring expressive and educational movement, addressing grief and loss, and reworking old relational and attachment patterns.

We can explore how EMDR is helpful in healing trauma and discuss if this is the therapy for you.
Although EMDR is not described as body oriented, EMDR utilizes somatic methods for healing by connecting fragmented traumatic experience with narrative thinking. Throughout the therapy, the awareness of body and cognitive responses supports the gentle discharging of the traumatic experience. EMDR is a process of trauma treatment that is facilitated by working with awareness of body and thought responses.
