What Is Trauma?

"Trauma" can be an uncomfortable word. We often associate it with war, death, rape or experiences that do not apply to us. Sometimes, even if we have encountered those experiences we may avoid the word because we feel it implies being deeply damaged.

Can EMDR Help Me?

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is one of the most effective therapy approaches. EMDR is internationally recognized as an evidence-based intervention, and has been strongly recommended by the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs and Defense for the treatment of PTSD.

I have used EMDR to help clients work through:

  • Childhood abuse (physical, emotional, sexual, spiritual)

  • Rape, assault, harassment

  • Poor relationship with parents or people one grew up with

  • Stressful work relationships

  • Low self-esteem

  • Car accidents

  • Depression, anxiety, PTSD

 

I also enjoy working with these populations and issues:

  • Young professionals

  • Healers or people in helping professions

  • Spiritual growth

  • Issues stemming from being different

I offer my clients a unique perspective and skill set developed through classical training and diverse clinical experiences.
EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) therapy is an approach I particularly enjoy because of its effectiveness in helping clients work through triggers, painful memories, and negative self-talk. However, my approach is tailored to each client. I take into consideration your personality, therapy goals, and openness to new ways of healing. If you would like to learn more about EMDR, click here.
