At Compassion Centered Counseling, I specialize in providing trauma counseling, complex trauma counseling and PTSD treatment.
I have provided trauma counseling for many clients and what I have learned in my work with these individuals is that the human spirit is amazingly resilient. Some of the most impressive people have endured devastating loss and trauma, and have recovered after emerging from the difficult feelings that accompany these experiences. Through effective trauma counseling, they have learned to embrace themselves fully, accept the story of their life, and claim empowerment over themselves and their choices.
Although no therapy is guaranteed to solve all of one’s struggles, and the length of treatment varies with each client, we work together to monitor progress throughout the process. Due to the unique aspect of each person’s circumstances, I adjust my approach to address all specific areas of one’s struggle.
Through specific therapies such as EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapy, a therapy very often used in PTSD treatment and complex PTSD treatment, you are able to find relief.
What if talking about the trauma makes it worse?
Talking about your feelings and experiences in a safe environment with a trusted counselor can actually make you feel better when the therapist understands the unique aspects of working with trauma. I understand how difficult it can be to share such emotionally charged memories with someone. I work to establish trust with my clients so that discussing these emotions is not so difficult. I begin trauma work by teaching skills and tools to help you cope with the difficult emotions that are the result of traumatic experiences. We then may use EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) in the trauma therapy. This approach to therapy helps you to draw from your strengths and resources as you process the difficult information in a safe environment.
What Is EMDR Therapy?
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a therapy used to help clients resolve traumatic memories in a way that is often more effective than traditional talk therapy. There are many great benefits to EMDR therapy for the resolution of PTSD symptoms. For more information on this therapy, please visit my page, About EMDR.
