Treatment Tools

Treatment Toolbox and Specializations

Every therapist has a “treatment toolbox”, techniques, skills and tools that can be offered to clients in order to help them in a variety of areas.  As a depth psychotherapist for over 30 years, I have obtained many tools over time. I’ve thrown out some old tools, collected some new tools, and have safeguarded the timeless tools.  Some of the therapeutic techniques/ tools I use in my practice are:

  • Brainspotting
  • Voice Dialogue/Shadow Work
