Therapist specializing in trauma recovery, PTSD, and narcisstic abuse recovery. Change your perspective to change your life.
Clinical Social Worker in Cincinnati, OH
EMDR can reprocess a variety of symptoms related to trauma so that they are no longer causing a stress response in the body. I help clients understand how the cumulative effects of trauma influence present day functioning. We can free up enormous energy in the body by letting go of the emotional burdens we are carrying. EMDR changes our relationship to previous distressing memories and facilitates healing.
Your insurance company likes to pay for this method because it works. The thoughts we think influence our feelings and experiences. Changing these thoughts makes us more likely to adjust our behavioral responses. Gaining some mastery in this area helps clients to feel empowered and make changes.
Becoming more mindful allows us more familiarity with our nervous systems and what helps us to feel safe in our bodies and minds. I help clients foster and strengthen this relationship with themselves so they can follow their own guidance.
Trauma has long been a professional interest of mine. I use EMDR combined with mindfulness and cognitive behavioral therapy to reprocess trauma and replace limiting beliefs with positive ones. EMDR is a more body based approach and can be a great option if utilizing talk therapy has not given results from PTSD and trauma related symptoms.
Providing support for parents and families during pregnancy and postpartum is critical. Rather than being regarded as a supremely important job, parenting is often seen as less valuable than work that is done outside the home. As a result, parents feel undervalued. You deserve support and validation. Raising the next generation is hard!
I enjoy helping people on their journey to recovery from narcissistic abuse, domestic violence, sexual abuse, and other forms of emotional abuse/neglect. Witnessing other's healing in these sensitive areas is inspiring. It can shift everything in our lives when we let go of the past.
