Many of my clients have experienced some form of trauma in their life. For those whose trauma occurred in their younger years, even if they have undergone therapy for it at some point before, they may notice distress infiltrating their life today. They may recognize this manifesting in symptoms of anxiety or depression, addiction or co-dependent relationships.
I am a Certified Trauma Informed Therapist. I am also trained in EMDR. This means that I have specialized training to work with clients who have experienced some form of trauma. In my work, I prioritize the importance of building a trusting foundation in the client/therapist relationship. Identifying the ways in which trauma manifests itself in a clients' present life is a critical part of recovery. With that information, we can identify; then establish and practice tools intended to address increasing emotions when trauma is triggered.
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing)
EMDR is an evidence based treatment providing relief to clients who experience emotional dysregulation from past painful life events. The focus of this treatment is building internal resources to then identify and process painful memories. The goal of EMDR is to integrate the memory in a healthy way so that it can exist but not overpower or interrupt a person's life.
I received my training through Trauma Institute & Child Trauma Institute, a rigorous EMDRIA approved training institution. I continue to receive supervision on my work which I feel is critical to offer clients the best treatment possible. Click here for more information on EMDR.
