I am an EMDRIA Approved Consultant and Certified in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), which alleviates distress associated with traumatic memories.
First Responders and Military Personnel can be subjected to stress, trauma and other forms of adverse exposure in one shift that citizens don't experience in an entire lifetime.
My focus aims to assist First Responders and Military Personnel with simple and complex stress
My goal is to help you with stress reduction, coping strategies, and trauma healing so these burdens no longer impact you and you can find a healing to get back to living the life you want to.
Simply put, trauma is what occurs when we experience a real or perceived threat which is greater than our coping abilities. Working in a job field which can subject employees to some of the hardest times in life is both honorable and can be extremely difficult. Come see me if you find yourself feeling emotionally numb or bored, overstimulated or on-edge, and/or notice intrusive thoughts, flashbacks or difficulty sleeping, relaxing or enjoying life.
Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger after traumatic events. I can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the healing process
Relationship counseling can be beneficial to couples who are looking to strengthen their emotional connection, in all stages of their relationship. Therapy sessions are held with couples and is a supportive place to discuss issues and solutions to better strengthen and improve the functioning of your relationship.
