Trauma and PTSD and How Therapy Can Help

Trauma and PTSD are common experiences that can significantly impact an individual's daily life. A person may have been exposed to death, serious injury, or sexual violence either through direct exposure, witnessing the trauma, or learning that a close friend or relative was exposed to the trauma. This can result in nightmares, flashbacks, emotional distress, and unwanted upsetting memories, which are indicators of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

It's important to recognize that trauma is a highly individualized experience influenced by personal history, coping mechanisms, and support systems. What may be traumatic for one person may not be traumatic for another. As a licensed mental health counselor, I am dedicated to providing a safe and non-judgmental space for individuals to explore and process their trauma in a way that is meaningful and healing for them.

In my practice, I utilize Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) as an evidence-based therapy for addressing trauma and PTSD. EMDR helps individuals process traumatic memories in a safe and controlled manner, leading to the reprocessing of these memories and the alleviation of associated distress. Through the use of bilateral stimulation, such as eye movements or tapping, EMDR can help individuals access and integrate traumatic experiences in a way that promotes healing and resolution.

If you or someone you know is struggling with trauma-related symptoms, EMDR may be a beneficial treatment option to consider. I am committed to providing personalized, compassionate care to help individuals navigate their trauma and move towards a place of healing and empowerment. Please don't hesitate to reach out for more information or to schedule a consultation. You are not alone, and support is available.

You deserve to feel heard, understood, and supported on your journey towards healing. Contact me at or 561-903-TALK (8255) to take the first step towards healing.
