Licensed Professional Counselor in Atlanta, GA
Somatic psychotherapy to help clients attain greater mind and body congruence. The nervous system doesn't use words, so that means you simply can't "talk" your way out of certain emotions or core beliefs. Combining somatic therapy with either EMDR or talk therapy can help bridge the gap between the thinking brain and the feeling brain.
It's too easy to get caught up worrying about yesterday or tomorrow. I like to focus on the here-and-now, and the comfort that being present can bring.
EMDR can be used for a wide range of trauma work. I think it's important to recognize that trauma doesn't always lead to a PTSD diagnosis. For instance, life transitions such as divorce or financial hardships can be traumatizing. Trauma (big or small) can manifest in different ways depending on the individual. I believe the past is present, which is why I work collaboratively with my clients to get to the root of the issue and incorporate somatic psychotherapy into trauma work as necessary.
