Dr. Sharon Freedman, Ph.D., SEP, LF Yoga Level 1
I believe we all have an innate orientation toward health, growth, and the expression of our full potential. We may experience, however, blocks in the form of thinking, feeling, and/or bodily symptoms that cause significant distress, interfering with our ability to function optimally and to access our resources and our more complete selves. This may manifest itself in the form of overwhelming feelings such as depression, anxiety, and/or rage; disordered eating and body image; flashbacks and/or other symptoms of unprocessed traumatic experiences; or other signs that we have lost touch with the fullness of who we are. As a Clinical Psychologist who has traveled extensively and been in practice for over 20 years, I blend Western, Eastern, and Hawaiian approaches to self experience, using principles and/or techniques of Somatic Experiencing (SEP Certificate), EMDR (EMDRIA-Certified Practitioner), Psychodynamic Therapy, Imagery, Ego State Therapy, and LifeForceYoga (Level 1) I assist you in using your symptoms as a guide to ultimately enhance your everyday functioning. This entails catalyzing your innate ability to understand yourself, heal, grow, express yourself, achieve balance, and love. Treatments range from very short term to long term, depending on your symptoms, personal history, and goals.
Education & Experience
I have been doing EMDR for 23 years, and also incorporate Somatic Experiencing (SEP) and Ego State Therapy ("parts" work) into the treatment.
