I'm Vierge— Trauma Therapist
When you are directly or indirectly exposed to trauma, you are likely to experience a variety of symptoms. This can be sudden, or it can be a delayed response that appears out of nowhere. These issues can have an effect on your job, relationships, social, personal esteem, self-confidence, and outlook on life. It's important to deal with trauma as soon as possible and in a meaningful way.
Welcome! I specialize in trauma and complex trauma, early childhood, attachment issues, intimate relationships resulting from the aftermath of traumatic experiences. Individuals and couples come to me with the focus on life transitions, anxiety, trauma and symptoms of PTSD, parts work, relationship issues, complicated grief/loss, early attachment issues, and those working in high-stress settings.
I use a person-centered approach as an integrative therapist, combining psychodynamic, existential-humanistic, and contemporary psychology structures. In addition, Brainspotting, Mindfulness, somatic processing, the Gottman Method for Couples, Emotionally Focused Therapy, and contemplative psychology are among my skills and training.
As an expressive arts therapist, I incorporate therapeutic writing, drama, movement, art, bibliotherapy, cinema, and music into appropriate sessions to help clients who are having trouble recognizing and expressing emotion, as well as getting their needs met. Individuals are not required to have "artistic" abilities in order to benefit from expressive art therapy.
I have served as a licensed mental health counselor and crisis clinician in various roles in outpatient, trauma residential, school, in-home therapy, and community counseling settings.
I have an interest in transformative and restorative justice, spirituality, holistic arts, intergenerational family trauma, and post-traumatic healing. In addition to counseling, I am an adjunct faculty member at Lesley University for in the master's program for Expressive Arts Therapy.
In my coaching and wellness practice, I specialize in energy healing and spirituality mentoring, using energy psychology, neurolinguistic programming, Emotional Freedom Technique and tapping.

INTENSIVE PSYCHOTHERAPY SESSION
Intensive psychotherapy is much like other psychotherapy approaches, except that you meet your therapist more than once a week. Intensive psychotherapy 90-min sessions are longer and can be scheduled more than once a week.
In other words, the more therapy sessions, the more progress that will result in rapid change.
The general approach to psychotherapy is a weekly meeting. Some may find that they are on the verge of progress right when a 45-or 60-minute session comes to an end. Other times, you may need to re-learn or re-examine the skills learned from the previous session.
However, intensive psychotherapy is an alternative approach as long as it fits your needs. It benefits those who are willing to commit and motivated to make rapid progress on the problem. These sessions are generally ideal for those who may have a busy lifestyle, a high-stress career, or seek treatment for complex issues that require more than one session a week.
