Trauma Treatment & EMDR Therapy

Trauma Treatment, EMDR Therapy

The person is not the problem.  The problem is the problem.

Is trauma keeping you anxious, on edge, and overwhelmed?

Are you feeling disconnected or numb?

Do you feel stuck?

Are you having ruminating thoughts that make it difficult to get through the day?

Do you feel shame or guilt?

Are nightmares or incomplete memories causing you distress?

Do you avoid certain thoughts or feelings?

These symptoms are NORMAL responses to an ABNORMAL experience.

Experiencing trauma is deeply personal and profoundly painful.  I honor the courage it takes to seek help!  Therapy is a collaborative process. One that focuses on the thoughts, feelings, sights, sounds, smells, and memories causing you distress.  Your subjective experience means YOU get to choose what you want your future to look like.

Reconnect with your sense of self through trauma treatment.

Trauma treatment is a journey of healing.  Healing from shame and guilt to empowerment and self-worth.  Feeling trapped and fearful to freedom and safety.  From numbness and just trying to survive to feeling connected and thriving.

Elements of trauma treatment:

  • Trust and honesty:  Therapy is most effective when there is trust and honesty with yourself and in the therapeutic relationship.
  • Safety: Emotional and physical safety is imperative to the healing process, this begins in my office.
  • Preparation: Utilizing tools learned in therapy for grounding, emotional regulation, and distress tolerance effectively between sessions is essential before reprocessing any disturbing material.  Your well-being is my number one priority!

EMDR Therapy for Trauma Treatment
The past does not have to be the future.

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is an evidence proven treatment approach with extensive research demonstrating its effectiveness. The disturbance of traumatic experiences and adverse life events is due to the incomplete and/or maladaptive processing of the memories. Through bilateral stimulation (eye movements, tapping, and/or tones) the brain is able to reprocess and resolve emotional trauma in a more adaptive way, helping you move beyond fear and anxiety to reach your full potential.
