EMDR & Somatic Therapy
Being in a situation that is overwhelming, upsetting, and out of control can have significant and long-lasting impacts on your nervous system and mental health.
This is trauma.
This could have happened in ongoing ways in childhood. This could have happened in one specific incident, like an accident or an attack. This could be happening in your current life - honestly, just dating can be traumatic!
While everyone experiences trauma differently, here are some common symptoms of trauma:
Anxiety, hyper vigilance
Numb, dissociated, disconnected
Feeling unsafe in the world
Having negative self beliefs
Difficulty managing emotions
Flashbacks, intrusive thoughts or memories
Difficulty with close relationships
The Holistic Approach to Trauma
Having bad things happen to you may be part of life, but the effects do not have to be permanent. Like a wound to your body, your brain has the capacity to heal. You can feel whole again and live without being haunted by the past.
We believe treating trauma needs a creative approach. No two people, no two trauma experiences are the same. One size does not fit all. Our approach incorporates several types of trauma treatment, including EMDR and Somatic Therapy, will be customized to fit each person's needs.
