In addition to using traditional psychotherapy techniques, I utilize EMDR and Sensory Motor Psychotherapy for treating the symptoms of PTSD and complex trauma.
Making the decision to engage in psychotherapy is an important step in healing from traumatic life events that leave emotional wounds long into adulthood. My approach to working with individuals suffering from traumatic stress comes from an understanding that trauma is stored in the body. Often traditional talk therapy is ineffective until one learns how to calm the body’s heightened state of anxiety and therefore allowing the mind to focus on healing rather than survival. Substance abuse is often an effective but maladaptive coping strategy for the emotional and physical stress responses that linger long after the traumatic experience is over. I assist clients who struggle with substances to discover the connection between their substance use and their trauma symptoms, and to develop new strategies for recovery that start with the body.

I believe that Balance is an important components of life. Not unlike the human body, our mind strives for equilibrium, also known as Balance. I also believe that when one works to seek and achieve Clarity, he or she will find peace and comfort. I interpret Clarity as the continual state of obtaining information and knowledge, communicating, as well as validating information and feelings received from people around us. I believe that Mindfulness is the key to maintaining continued balance and clarity in life. I interpret mindfulness as being in the "now"; being in the present moment and being available.

I am incredibly fortunate to be the son of Professor Arnold Lazarus. Not only did I literally learn at the feet of the man who pioneered cognitive-behavior therapy (CBT), but from his amazing colleagues and friends as well. Indeed, I have been privileged to get to know and learn from Carl Rogers, Albert Ellis, Aaron Beck, Francine Shapiro, and Marsha Linehan, to name only a few. Hence, I have been able to synthesize the teachings of many of the greatest minds in psychology into an approach that is at once scientifically grounded, tailored to fit the needs of unique individuals, highly flexible, and comprehensive.

The benefits of time spent working on your relationship with yourself and others will ripple through your life in countless positive ways- reduced anxiety and depression, fewer conflicts and more effective ways to manage them, and feeling in-control instead of resentful, overwhelmed and powerless.

EMDR Therapists
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is an information processing therapy that helps clients cope with trauma, addictions, and phobias. During this treatment, the patient focuses on a specific thought, image, emotion, or sensation while simultaneously watching the therapist's finger or baton move in front of his or her eyes. The client is told to recognize what comes up for him/her when thinking of an image; then the client is told to let it go while doing bilateral stimulation.

If you're looking for EMDR therapy in Skillman or for a Skillman EMDR therapist these professionals provide EMDR therapy, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing and EMDR treatment. They include EMDR therapists, EMDR psychologists, EMDR psychotherapists, and EMDR counselors.
