What does a first session with you look like?

In the first session we will just to know each other and what brings you to a Trauma Therapist. During our time together we will reduce the intensity of how we think and feel about the past. We will then look into how you want to be feeling and living now and into the future.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I utilize an evidence based and clinically proven way to deal with the effects of trauma called EMDR. EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. Through the use of safely revisiting past traumas together combined with eye movements we will reduce the painful past thoughts and feelings and introduce the new way you want or need to be feeling instead. EMDR is a clinically proven way to safely address the things that most frighten you about your past painful feelings and memories.
