Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Chester Springs,
Couples therapy seeks to address challenges that may exist between two people. Some seek therapy prevent a breakup or divorce. Others seek therapy for conflict resolution, better communication, or to address a disconnect and improve relationship satisfaction. Some seek therapy for “maintenance” and to tweak certain areas of their relationship. A therapeutic relationship is established between the therapist and the couple for the purpose of developing trust and understanding.
Trauma physically changes our brains. Trauma-Focused therapy is a specific approach that identifies and takes into consideration how the traumatic experience effects an individual’s mental, behavioral, emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being. I’m a certified in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). EMDR is a therapeutic approach that is interactive and designed to alleviate psychological stress associated with traumatic memories. It’s an effective way to treat trauma.
Family therapy is a type of psychotherapy that is used when dealing with couples and families. It emphasizes family relationships as an important factor in psychological health. This type of therapy focuses on family problems, which are seen in relation to family interactions, instead of based only on individual members of a unit. I usually focus on the interactions between family members and how those interactions may foster issues.
EMDR is a therapeutic approach that is interactive and designed to alleviate psychological stress associated with traumatic memories. It is an effective form of treatment for trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
