I am trained in both EMDR and clinical hypnotherapy, which provide me with exceptional tools to help you to discover the hidden meanings behind the problems you are currently experiencing. The use of these tools enable my clients to see the whole picture and are excellent for releasing trauma, desensitizing old triggers and pain and will help you to envision a new future. Real and lasting change only happens when you heal the wound at its core, which can sometimes be held deep inside the subconscious mind.
Working through the subconscious combined with talk therapy can help you to dispel old ways of thinking that are keeping you from reaching your full potential. I will help you move through this process with a much greater understanding and an ability to see the larger picture. The healing that takes place on this level can truly be life changing. EMDR and hypnotherapy are only a couple of the tools I can use to help you to overcome depression, anxiety, low self esteem and it is also a valuable aide in defusing trauma or habits you want to break.
I am a licensed mental health counselor associate # MC 60617197 with a masters degree in clinical psychology from Saybrook University. My graduate program viewed psychotherapy through a Systems lens, which enables me to support you in all of your personal relationships as you progress through therapy. I am trained in EMDR, hypnotherapy, spiritual emergence or emergency coaching and the hearing voices movement.
Other Areas of Specialization:
Eye Movement, Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR):
- Barbara Parratt, MS, RN, CNS - EMDRIA Compliant
EMDR is a form therapy that can reduce the intensity of disturbing memories or thoughts, while allowing the brain to naturally process memories or trauma that occurred in your past. The eye movements used in EMDR are similar to what occurs naturally during dreaming or REM (rapid eye movement) sleep. Therefore, EMDR can be thought of as a physiologically based therapy that allows a person to comprehend disturbing material in a new and less distressing way.
Clinical Hypnotherapy Training:
Clinical hypnotherapy is an excellent way to get to the root of any issues you are dealing with, which enables the healing process to begin. By accessing your subconscious mind where habits and beliefs are held we are able to rewrite any distorted belief systems that may be driving your present and future experiences. Installing new and empowering beliefs where once disabling ideas were held, will open you up to a future of new possibilities.
Hearing Voices Facilitator Training:
Hearing Voices Facilitator Training, Portland Hearing Voices
The Hearing Voices Movement teaches a holistic form of treatment for schizophrenia that helps voice hearer’s to change the relationship they have with their voices to something more positive and supportive. I’ve seen my voice hearing clients’ lives change, once they were able to learn how to take a more powerful position with their voices and set boundaries.
Spiritual Emergency Training:
• Grounding & Embodiment in Spiritual Emergency, Integrative Mental Health University
• How to Effectively Help Someone in Spiritual Emergency, Integrative Mental Health University
Humans are spiritual beings in a constant state of evolving. Sometimes evolution gets messy and requires time, safety and patients as the butterfly wrestles it's way out of the cocoon. People often emerge from the crisis much stronger, wiser and more open, often able to discover their life's true path and follow it. Spiritual Emergency is a transformational crisis that can cause a person to become over-whelmed by the experiences of non-ordinary states of consciousness. These states can sometimes be accompanied by confusion, pre-occupation and distancing of loved ones, to the point it may become hard to function in daily life. These experiences can be triggered by spiritual practices like yoga and meditation, or other factors like near–death experience, fasting, trauma, grief, recreational drugs, the global crisis or even one’s natural gifts of intuition, etc.
