Trauma Therapy and EMDR
Freedom From Past Trauma:
You have been trying to “hold it all together” which feels exhausting. On the outside, you are doing the best you can, holding it together for your children, partner, and work, but on the inside, you just want to scream, yell, fight, run, or simply shut down.
You don’t know how other people seem to move through life so easily. They seem to have it all figured out. “What is wrong with me?”
You get frustrated with yourself for “not being better” and might even hear an inner voice that tells you that you are worthless, no good or broken in some way.
At night you run through past scenarios trying to figure out a way to have done things better. “If only you (blank), you wouldn’t be in this mess”. Your thoughts race and you feel like you are being pulled in many different directions.
Sometimes you feel numb, disconnected from those around you, just trying to survive another day.
You have been feeling this way for a long time and are ready to find some type of answer.
If this sounds familiar, I have great news. There is nothing “wrong” with you. How can I know this, without having met you? These symptoms you are feeling are a very normal response to what you have been through.
Our body holds on to trauma from long ago and shows up as symptoms of anxiety, depression, anger, and even physical symptoms such as migraine headaches, muscle tension, and digestive issues.
EMDR and Somatic therapy are proven ways to help regulate the central nervous system, process past trauma, and bring the mind and body back into balance. I have helped hundreds of clients do just this.
Many people have the misconception that healing from past trauma will take years in therapy. However, given the right treatment plan, help and healing can be had in a much shorter time frame than you might think. The good news is, by viewing this you have already taken the first steps in your healing journey.

The Benefits of Therapy
Psychotherapy can be an effective tool in providing you with the necessary support and training to overcome the challenges you face. By seeking therapy, you are taking responsibility and action to change what no longer works in your life.
Many studies have shown throughout the years that psychotherapy is an effective form of treating and managing mental illnesses and other emotional disorders.
As an experienced licensed professional counselor, it is my honor to assist you in exploring your core issues and moving toward a healthy, fulfilling life. Utilizing a variety of approaches including Cognitive/Cognitive-Behavioral, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, EMDR, and Internal Family Systems, I will work with you to create a treatment plan that is customized to meet your unique circumstances.
With honesty and compassion, I will work with you to create an open channel of communication. The goal of our therapy sessions together will be to help you develop the mental fortitude needed to lead a successful life. Additionally, we will work on the skill of self-compassion, which will allow you to move more easily through difficult times in the future, as well as become a more productive and happier person.
