To be able to survive in this world everyone of us at an early age has developed some kind of coping mechanism to manage life stressors. If a coping mechanism is too constrained/fixed (e.g., “I need to be perfect.” “I have to keep everyone happy in order for me to feel controlled and safe.”) that can eventually take a toll on one’s automatic nervous system and compromise his/her physical and mental health.
My approach to therapy is integrative with polyvagal theory, attachment theory, family system, CBT, and Hypnotherapy. In supporting trauma work, I also have completed an in-depth 3 year training in Somatic Experiencing. One of the most important elements in my work with clients is to create a safe space to process and to regulate difficult emotions. This helps to reduce symptoms and eventually to cultivate internal resources.
