You are just not the same anymore after it happened. You now struggle to sleep, find connection with others, or ultimately experience joy in your life. You are stressed and you wish you could stop thinking about the event(s) but somehow you cannot turn your thoughts away. Perhaps you find yourself avoiding certain topics, places, or people because they remind you too much of what happened. You long to be the person you once were and to have the life you once had. You are tired, worn out, and you need to somehow find a way forward in your life.
If this is you, then you likely have experienced a traumatic or difficult event in your life. Trauma and difficult experiences tend to hang on to us and not let go. I have worked with many trauma survivors and have helped them reduce the internal burdens they are carrying using trauma-focused techniques and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing).
I offer daytime and evening appointments on Fridays and Saturdays. Please feel free to call me or email me to get started. You may also take a look at my website to find more information. I offer special pricing for active military, veterans, and first responders (with ID or proof of occupation).
