   Integrative NeuroCounseling 


My Philosophy & Therapeutic Approach

As an Integrative Therapist, I utilize numerous theories of human functioning and psychotherapy based on developmental research. Integration in counseling refers to the bringing together the whole person- affective, cognitive, behavioral, physiological and the spiritual dimensions within each individual.

The Humanistic Approach focuses on individual uniqueness and consciousness.The personality is studied and explored from your personal  experience and worldview. The study of self, human potential and Moslow's Hierarchy of needs. "YOU" are the expert in your story, I am the facilitator. I am also Existential, helping you examine patterns, find meaning, and shift towards purpose.

I practice Strength-Based Therapy,understanding one's core beliefs then bridging the gap between where you are today and your best self. Reduce and eliminate traumatic memories, automatic negative thoughts and rumination, patterns of self-defeating behaviors, and subconscious mechanisms. 

I incorporate Brain-Based Therapy and Practical Neuroscience to improve attachment, emotional regulation, distress tolerance, and mindful practices which result in faster results than just traditional talk therapy.

What is NLP & EMDR ?

How this can help you...

           Neurolinguistic Programming


NLP Is  influencing brain behavior  "neuro,"  through the use of language,  "linguistic," and non-verbal communication to enable a person to "recode" the way the brain responds to stimuli "programming." 

Neuro-Linguistic Programming:  focuses on  the relationship between positive patterns  and the subjective experiences increasing self-awareness, effective communication, and underlying subconscious mechanisms.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)is based on several principles:

1- NLP argues that people are NOT their behavior and that when you accept the person, you are free to change behavior. 

2- NLP state people already possess everything they need to succeed and to achieve their outcomes and that they simply need to learn how to unlock them. 

3- NLP is based on the success of communication and overcoming miscommunication, reading between the lines in the meaning of sharing information. "Say what you mean."                        

        Eye Movement Desensitization                                       Reprocessing (EMDR) 

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an extensively researched integrative psychotherapy proven effective for trauma treatment. EMDR is a complex therapeutic process utilizing eye movements, bi-lateral sound or pulsations to stimulate both hemispheres of the brain.

Traumatic memories are stored in parts of the brain where they can’t be processed then images, sounds and emotions related to the memory become “frozen in time.” EMDR “unfreezes” these memories, As this occurs, the memory loses its emotional power and becomes less distressing. 

EMDR is designed to alleviate distress associated with traumatic memories. It allows clients to access and process memories, remove mental blocks healing through bi-lateral eye movement with a finger, light bar, utilizing taps, and or audio tones. (See non-invasive equipment to the right)
