Treatment Toolbox and Specializations

Every therapist has a “treatment toolbox”, techniques, skills and tools that can be offered to clients in order to help them in a variety of areas.  As a depth psychotherapist for 20 years, I have obtained many tools over time. I’ve thrown out some old tools, collected some new tools, and have safeguarded the timeless tools.  Some of the therapeutic techniques/ tools I use in my practice are:

Voice Dialogue/Shadow Work
Shame Resilience (Dr. Brené Brown)
Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (Trauma Release)
Shame Reduction Work/Co-Dependency (Pia Mellody)
Family Effectiveness Training/Communication Tools/Skills
Dream Work & Personal Mandalas
Jungian Sandplay Therapy & Symbol Work
Imago Relationship Work (Couples)
Experiential Exercise Work/Gestalt/Imagery/Metaphors
Sexual Addiction & Partner Trauma Recovery (Patrick Carnes)
Stress Reduction/Relaxation Techniques
