Mental Health Counselor in Boca Raton, FL
What is considered “traumatic” by one individual may not be so to another. As a Trauma Specialist, I am equipped to help you understand your symptoms, navigate your treatment process, and assist in prompting the emotional and mental relief that is possible in your life.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a powerful psychotherapy approach that has helped over an estimated two million people of all ages relieve many types of psychological distress, with particular effectiveness in treating Post Traumatic Stress. EMDR uses a procedure that reduces the intensity of the traumatic images, reduces the emotional response to the disturbing memories, and aids in the development of healthy coping and positive self-concept.
Many of us seek social support to help us adapt to difficult situations. However, when faced with traumatic situations, it can be challenging to foster trust within a relationship. This can leave us feeling isolated, afraid and unsure of where to turn for help. Introducing a trained, nurturing animal into therapy can be a helpful first step. Through this unique connection, we learn to develop trust and find comfort in addressing the burdens that led us to seek therapy initially.
