EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is an integrative therapeutic modality that is highly effective for treating the effects of trauma.
EMDR works by helping memories or "neural networks" that are stuck in the brain link up with more resourceful, creative, and expansive networks in the brain. This is done in session by having the client process memories, feelings, or sensations, while receiving some form of alternating stimulation to each side of the body. The result is that the memories, feelings, or sensations that felt stuck now seem to move toward a greater sense of ease and resolution and no longer feel troubling. I believe as many others do, that this is truly the mind and body's natural tendency to move towards integration and healing.

Nature therapy, also called ecotherapy, is the practice of being in nature to boost growth and healing, especially mental health. Studies have shown that being in nature, reduces anger, fear, and stress and increases pleasant feelings. Exposure to nature not only makes you feel better emotionally, it contributes to your physical wellbeing, reducing bloodpressure
pressure, heart rate, muscle tension, and the production of stress hormones. I have a limited number of clients that I am able to work with while outside in Griffith Park. Please contact me directly if you are interested in this way of working.
