One day it’s 2017 and the next it’s 2022. Needless to say life got really busy and just like that 5 years have passed since my last blog post. In these last 5 years, I did a deep dive into post graduate trainings in the areas of trauma and psychoanalysis. I am now an EMDR practitioner, yeay! I also did further in depth training in psychoanalytic psychotherapy (I now have a permit to practice psychoanalysis in NYS). All these trainings, although time consuming and costly, have helped me to evolve into being a better equipped psychotherapist for YOU!
Like you I try to balance living a joyful and healthier life everyday, dedicate time to improving my craft as a psychotherapist, and take care of my family. To do this optimally, I now solely dedicate my private practice to working with adults (sorry no children at this time) experiencing depression, anxiety, and trauma (including racial and intergenerational trauma). As a holistic and integrative psychotherapist, I am here to bear witness to your stories and be part of your journey towards increasing resilience and healing.
So what's the plan for this blog for the rest of 2022? I plan to share all the research I read about to help you increase your internal peace and to calm your nervous system. My goal is to share resources that can be accessible to everyone. Everything I share will be holistic and backed by science and experts in our field, so you know you are not wasting your time!
Since today is the first day of summer, I leave you with a blue space meditative video created by me after my recent visit to the New York Aquarium (see below). I encourage you to get as much vitamin seas (yes you read that right) as possible during summer and through out the year! Blue spaces reduce stress and anxiety. To learn more about blue spaces, listen to this podcast.
