Whether it is anxiety or depression,
body image or low self-worth, relationship conflicts or trauma,
at the root, there is pain.
Witnessing and expressing that pain can be deeply healing. Exploring and recognizing the ways these behaviors have functioned to protect you, can be transformative. And demonstrating a new felt safety to your mind and body can be liberating.
Together we will work from a trauma informed lens, which provides the tools needed for therapy to feel emotionally sustainable.
A common theme I have witnessed in my work with couples is the cycle of disconnection & pain. Our focus will be on identifying these cycles and their origin, to gain insight and understanding.
This insight often leads to a more compassionate lens, resulting in a deeper connection to one another.
Once a couple has regained a sense of connection, the work of establishing new and intimate ways of responding to one another can begin.
Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing is a highly effective, and evidence-based approach for addressing the effects of trauma.
It aims to help individuals process and resolve distressing memories, reduce the emotional and physiological distress associated with trauma, and develop more adaptive coping strategies.
EMDR has demonstrated effectiveness in reducing symptoms of PTSD, anxiety, depression, and other trauma-related disorders.
