Fear, panic, a mind that just won't slow down, poor sleep or appetite, discomfort in your own skin, poor focus - not feeling like yourself - these are just a few of the most common symptoms bringing people to therapy. They are also some of the most effectively treated. EMDR therapy, ACT, CBT and Mindfulness-based therapies will help you heal and move forward as you learn helpful strategies to mitigate symptoms in the future.
Traumatic events and losses present themselves throughout our lifetimes. The impact of even distant events may linger, affecting us in ways we don't realize. We may store these experiences within our bodies - a protective mechanism that no longer serves us. EMDR and IFS therapies are evidence-based approaches that help move clients towards healing and recovery.
Our physical and mental health are intimately entwined. Stress in one area can certainly impact functioning in another. Whether one is struggling to adjust to a new condition or to cope with a long-term medical or mental health issue, supportive psychotherapy will help you heal, regain your emotional footing, and find your momentum.
