Hello, I’m Stephanie! I am an EMDR trained therapist in Decatur. I attended social work school at NYU and have been practicing 14 years.
Psychotherapist in Decatur, GA
This practice uses eye movements or other stimulation to help desensitize and reprocess memories that may be preventing you from living life fully in the moment. This can be useful for people who have experienced trauma, chronic illness, anxiety, depression and variety of concerns.
I encourage the use of mindfulness based practices including medication to begin to acknowledge how we are feeling, to learn how to work with our feelings and invite them in when we are ready for them, and to help us remain present in the moment.
I will help you seek to understand the intersections of your history and your current patterns through the use of our therapeutic relationship. Join me in a safe space to process, understand and work through your pain.
I have worked with countless parents or caregivers who have lost children to cancer, chronic illness, or traumatic accidents.
Managing a chronic illness includes not just an overwhelming number of medical appointments and concern about your physical body, but also means a way to process your own thoughts, emotions and feelings related to your illness. Sometimes being sick or caring for a loved one with an illness means managing a grief process, depression or anxiety. I have worked with many chronically ill adults and caregivers of ill children.
We all know raising a child requires a village, but becoming the parent you would like to be also takes one. Examine your feelings and parenting goals in a safe, judgement free zone.
