My skills for treating the victims and survivors of physical, sexual, and emotional violence developed during my three-year clinical internship with battered women and their children. Later I had intensive training in infant observation, deepening my sensitivity to nonverbal communication with clients of all ages. I also find EMDR to be a natural adjunct to talk therapy. This therapeutic modality, which is partly verbal and partly nonverbal, can be very helpful in the treatment of traumatic suffering. Drawing on the healing wisdom of the human body and brain, it helps old injuries to subside into the past. Although I mostly use the tools of psychodynamic “talk therapy” in therapy sessions, I find it useful sometimes to use symbolic forms of expression as well — drawing, sandplay, movement, music — with both children and adults, in the service of wholeness.
