Therapy for Trauma
Past stuff keeps coming up? Feeling on alert? Feeling disconnected? Trauma can have lasting impacts on our emotions, and how we feel about ourselves and the world around us. Therapy can help you work through your feelings about your experiences and learn ways to cope with its impacts. Trauma therapy can help change the limiting beliefs about our safety and sense of self and develop a new perspective about our experiences.
I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy and Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT).
What is EMDR Therapy?
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing is a treatment designed to alleviate the distress associated with traumatic memories. Successful treatment with EMDR therapy can relieve emotional distress, reframe negative beliefs, and reduce states of hyperarousal.
During EMDR therapy the client notices distressing thoughts/feelings/images/or beliefs while at the same time focusing on an external stimulus. Bilateral movements such as eye movements, hand tapping, and audio stimulation are the most frequently used types of external stimuli.
EMDR therapy can be conducted online or in person and can be used with all ages.
What is TF-CBT?
Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a trauma treatment for children and adolescents. TF-CBT helps kids and teens to work through emotional and behavioral difficulties resulting from trauma experiences.
