Trauma Specialist Therapist in Santa Monica, CA

I work with emotions in an experiential way

Aging – Old age can become the very BEST years of our lives. There is no need to believe your best years are behind you – it is quite the contrary!

Trauma & Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Therapy – If you’ve experienced trauma, talking about what happened isn’t enough to heal your wounds. In fact, sometimes talking will make you feel worse.

Healing from trauma requires a wide range of skills to help you process and recover from feelings of helplessness. A few of those skills include:

  • Grounding & Centering Exercises
  • Mindfulness
  • Body Interventions to help client develop boundaries and release “stuck” energy
  • Self-regulation skills
  • Resolve early trauma and attachment wounds

Mindful Anger Therapy/ Anger Management Therapy – Long-suppressed anger may lie deep within you. Exploring your present circumstances and the emotions it evokes may still leave you feeling angry. Instead of just looking at the here-and-now, we’ll follow my five-step, mindfulness-based method of releasing anger.

Approaches to Therapy

Sensorimotor Psychotherapy – I consider myself a body-oriented therapist and believe there is wisdom in our feelings. Instead of just going over and over the story of your life and never delving deeper, we’ll track the body to see what feelings, impulses, memories, and images exist under the words.

Psychodynamic Therapy – In an interactive psychodynamic therapy session, we will examine your thoughts and how your thoughts affect your behavior and we will explore and address any unresolved conflict or anger.

Emotional Focused Therapy – EFT is an experiential therapy technique for couples interested in enriching, revitalizing, and rescuing their intimate relationshiprelationship.
