LCSW Trauma Recovery Therapist with over a decade of experience treating PTSD and trauma related disorders with evidenced based therapies.
Clinical Social Worker in Connecticut
At Nema, we understand that trauma is not isolated to the generation that it has directly affected. In fact, trauma is passed down from generation to generation in multiple ways through both our relationships and genetics. At Nema, we believe that your trauma should not continue to affect your family and yourself, and that is why we strongly believe in effective trauma therapy. We believe that trauma recovery is the building block to healing families and communities.
Exposure to trauma is not limited to Veteran who were deployed to combat zones. At Nema we recognize that Veterans may have encountered traumatic events on and off the battlefield. In fact, interpersonal trauma, like Military Sexual Trauma (MST) or intimate partner violence, are more likely to result in PTSD than combat. At Nema, we treat all traumas, whether they occurred 30 days ago or 50 years ago, whether military or civilian-related.
Nema health is a survivor and clinician-led virtual treatment center focused on treating post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). PTSD is a term sometimes used loosely in the media and in our everyday lives. Your friends may joke about PTSD from a bad date, meal, or movie. Although it might be used lightly in conversation, PTSD is actually a health condition that requires diagnosis and treatment.
DBT is especially effective for people who have difficulty managing and regulating their emotions and has proven to be effective for treating and managing a wide range of mental health conditions. At Nema, we offer DBT skills groups to enhance skill building in emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness
CBT is a type of talk therapy that helps people understand how thoughts affect emotions and behaviors. At Nema, we employ CPT and DBT, both adaptation of CBT to help people understand specific thoughts and emotions that tend to occur very intensely
CPT is an adaptation of CBT designed specifically to treat people with PTSD by helping them change irrational thoughts and conclusions associated with past traumatic experiences. At Nema we offer massed or intensive CPT treatment, which means that we have structured therapy sessions 3-5 times a week where you’ll learn how to challenge your thoughts and feelings surrounding the trauma. Massed CPT has been widely researched and the results show you get better quickly and sustain treatment gains
