Maybe you have a difficult time going out with friends or being in a crowded restaurant or grocery store. Maybe you've even left early due to feeling anxious and overwhelmed. Maybe you’ve used alcohol, food, or sex to help you cope.
PTSD has multiple symptoms and it can feel overwhelming. If you have experienced a traumatic event, such as sexual assault, physical abuse, bullying, witnessing a family member or close friend experience a traumatic event, just to name a few, it's understandable if you are experiencing emotional distress.
Maybe you have upsetting memories, negative thoughts about yourself, feeling isolated from others, difficulty experiencing positive emotions or trouble concentrating at school or work. Maybe you have a difficult time sleeping at night.
It is my number one goal to support you and help you experience a sense of safety and stability. You will learn coping mechanisms and ways of managing the overwhelming feelings and emotions. I use different approaches to address trauma; one of these approaches is Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing or "EMDR." Research has shown EMDR therapy to be effective in treating PTSD. EMDR helps you process through debilitating thoughts and beliefs you've struggled with as a result of past experiences. EMDR helps get "stuck" memories "unstuck" so that you can move on with your life and stop living in the past.
