EMDR has been shown to greatly reduce the negative symptoms associated with PTSD and allows you to come to peace with previous traumatic events in your life.
Any type of abuse can cause havoc in our life. I have worked extensively with survivors of abuse and walked along side them in during their journey to overcome their past and not let it effect their future.
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a therapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. EMDR therapy shows that the mind can in fact heal from psychological trauma much as the body heals from physical trauma.
When utilizing in-person therapy, I work closely with my therapy dog, Koda, to help individuals feel safe and connected during the therapy process. Animal assisted therapy can also be extremely helpful in helping a person stay grounded when going through emotionally charged topics that are often brought up in the therapy session.
