Trauma

and

EMDR Therapy 

The life-altering effects of traumatic experiences can impact all of our systems; the cognitive, emotional, physical, social, and spiritual. Though you may be “making it” day by day, you might feel unable to achieve your goals, overly sensitive to change, or like you are holding back in your relationships.  Through your innate resilience, you have survived.  Processing and meaning-making with a professional can lead to powerful developments in one's responses to trauma and help you shift from simple survival to daily thriving.  
 
I have an extensive background in trauma treatment and training in EMDR therapy (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing).  Together, we will work to identify your core beliefs, pinpoint your patterns and rewrite your story. 
EMDR is an evidence-based practice for treatment of PTSD, anxiety and symptoms of depression.  Through this specific intervention, we will safely reprocess traumatic information until it is no longer disruptive to your life.   
Aside from your own dedication and courage, one of the most important elements of therapy is our relationship. As your therapist, I seek to create a culturally-sensitive, safe, and supportive space that invites trust and collaboration.  I offer validation, patience and empathy as we work together, exploring the issues that have hindered your growth.  
 
We all deserve happiness, self-love and peace-of-mind.  My hope is to guide you on your path towards healing while inspiring growth, insight, and awareness that will ultimately lead you towards feeling empowered and fulfilled.
