As your trauma counselor, I will match your personal goals with the best therapeutic modality.
As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in North Carolina, I serve in a variety of counseling roles, including work as a trauma counselor. Each person’s journey is unique, and past traumas can create debilitating levels of stress and anxiety, as well as contributing to self-esteem challenges and other mental health conditions. You are not alone, and you do not have to work through past traumas on your own.
As your trauma counselor, I will match your personal goals with the best therapeutic modality. This will look different for each individual. Your unique treatment goals will differ, and the methods I use to help you work toward these goals will differ as well. One possible strategy I will use as your trauma counselor is EMDR therapy.
EMDR stands for eye movement desensitization and reprocessing. Here are some things to know about EMDR therapy:
- It is often used to treat post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
- It may help you process traumatic memories from your past.
- During this type of therapy, you briefly focus on difficult memories while moving your eyes in a specific way. This process has been shown to help reduce the psychological strain of some memories.
- EMDR therapy may be used in place of or in conjunction with talk therapy sessions.
If you are looking for a trauma counselor who is compassionate, nonjudgmental, and welcoming, I believe you are in the right place, and I encourage you to reach out to me today at ASCH Counseling and Development, PLLC to schedule a consultation. My goal is always to help you live a happier and more fulfilling life.
