I have 13 years experience focused primarily in the Substance Use World.
Life Happens. To All of Us. And with it comes Ups and Downs. The Downs can be in the Present or lurking in the Past. They can come suddenly or have gone on long enough that you now need help navigating through to the other side. Some life events are not meant to be walked alone. Therapy and its process belongs both to the client and the therapist. A good therapist presents the same in the office as in their own living room. I am inviting you into my proverbial living room

Trauma can broadly be defined as any event or situation that has a lasting negative impact. EMDR is an highly effective form of psychotherapy which harnesses all we know about human attachment and neurobiology to heal trauma and to reprocess disturbing life experiences. Treatment focuses on past experiences as the basis for clinical complaints; current situations that trigger dysfunctional emotions, beliefs, and sensations; and positive experiences needed to enhance future adaptive behaviors and emotional health. Focused protocols are used, and no homework or detailed descriptions of the events are required.
