Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Lake Success, NY
Trauma can be a result of both a singular overwhelming and distressing experience as well as repeated and/or ongoing emotional injuries such as emotional or other abuse. The result is often a set of symptoms that are developed to assist the brain and body manage the distress. This is because we innately respond to such overwhelming distress not just psychologically, but physiologically. Thus, we utilize modalities that include somatic & mindfulness based approaches to holistically treat trauma.
Our passion to see couples succeed in their relationship drives our work with couples. We utilize the Gottman Method, EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy), and a trauma informed lens. We work to help couples who are either embarking on their journey, or couples who have been together and need help refocusing their relationship. We offer both premarital and marriage counseling. We address issues surrounding communication, intimacy, parenting, in-laws, and finances, to name a few.
In addition to talk therapy, we offer somatic therapy from a trauma-informed lens. Together we will get to the root cause of the depression and also help you recognize your body’s unique ways of signaling that it needs help. The mind may be the source of distress, but it's the body that often holds pain and tension within. We believe that: “The body, which holds the memories of our pain, sorrow, and fear can also become the means through which we work towards peace, calmness, hope & happiness."
