Together we will explore past experiences and potential connections to your symptoms such as burnout, anxiety, depression, stress, hyperactivity, or relationship breakdown.
My approach includes elements of the Adaptive Information Processing (AIP) model, attachment and dissociation theory, as well as Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR), Safe & Sound Protocol (SSP), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), sand tray, ego state, narrative, and Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy.
EMDR & SSP are research-based mind/body therapies which empower the body to self-heal. EMDR supports recalling memories with lower emotional impact & reprocessing them with gained insight. It involves the use of eye movements, tapping, or hand buzzers while focusing on a specific thought/feeling/body memory sensation to transform the event on an emotional level and create adaptive neural network connections. SSP enhances social engagement & resilience by reducing stress & auditory sensitivity. It uses filtered music to train the middle ear muscles to focus on certain frequencies, using this acoustic channel as portal to neural regulation and sense of safety at the autonomic nervous system level.
Safe & Sound Protocol (SSP)
$180 SSP in-person/online intake or program session (minimum 6 sessions at 60 min)
$250 SSP at home therapy (full program after intake: approved case by case for child clients)
Clients listen to music using over the ear headphones either in office or at home, depending on where they are at with therapy and needs. SSP helps create a sense of safety from the inside, by reducing stress & auditory sensitivity. It uses 5 hours of filtered music to train the middle ear muscles to focus on certain frequencies, and uses this acoustic channel as portal to neural regulation and sense of safety at the autonomic nervous system level. Many who receive this therapy report a ripple effect of benefits such as enhancement of social engagement, higher resilience, more openness to therapy, less environmental overstimulation, increased ability to understand and follow instructions.
