Trauma Informed and EMDR Therapy
Most people have been impacted by a traumatic experience at some point in their life. The trauma can vary from: having an abusive (physical, sexual, emotional) childhood, car accident, being a victim of a crime, death, losing a child, divorce etc., the list can go on and on. If the traumatic experience is causing issues for you, such as: flashbacks, avoidance of triggers, agitation, or you just need a place to process the experience, then my therapeutic services are what you need.
I have over 14 years of experience with treating patients who have suffered a variety of different types of trauma. I have attended numerous trainings and conferences to better understand the impact that trauma can have on a person. I have received certification in over 5 treatment models that have been proven in research studies to decrease the impact of the trauma for clients and help them recover and heal.
I have received advanced training in the following trauma informed evidence based practices: EMDR Therapy, Seeking Safety, Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Child-Parent Psychotherapy, and Caring for our Families. All of these treatment models help to incorporate the impact of the trauma into the therapeutic process to help provide clients the tools they need to manage their trauma in the present and help them become survivors rather than victims.
I have had special training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reporocessing (EMDR) Therapy which works with the brains natural healing movements to heal the trauma from past, present, and even future challenges. EMDR Therapy is used for quick relief of symptoms and clients report noticing a change within 2 months. EMDR Therapy consist of a reprocessing intervention to help get the brain unstuck in a negative cognition as a result of a trauma which can turn into PTSD, Anxiety, Depression, etc. Ask for more details.
