EMDR (eye-movement-desensitization-and-reprocessing therapy) is at the forefront of trauma therapies. It's a modality that supports the body-mind in revealing/healing past trauma. Trauma can cause us to feel anxious, depressed, panicked, stuck, dissociated, and disconnected. When we feel this way day after day, our bodies often become fatigued due to burn-out/chronic stress, which can cause negative coping mechanisms, isolation, and other challenges. EMDR helps us to unlock trauma stored deep in the body-mind and find relief and healing.
What you think about impacts the way that you feel, and when you feel better, you act better (think of this as behaving more in alignment with your value system). The behaviors that you engage in also impact how you feel about yourself and the world. This is CBT (cognitive-behavioral-therapy) in a nutshell. In this modality, we will look at the way that your feelings, behaviors, and thoughts all interact with one another. We explore what you truly think about yourself and how you exist in the world--what you will discover may surprise you.
"Feminism is a movement to end sexism, sexist exploitation, and oppression"--(bell hooks).
Feminist therapy is used as a lens to investigate and explore how society is built for white, cis-het (cisgender/heterosexual), assigned male at birth (AMAB) people and the subsequent ramifications and consequences for others who fall out of those parameters. Intersectionality, within feminism, looks at the way differing inequalities create intersecting discrimination and inequity.
Healing from violence is often a challenging road. I provide a nurturing, trauma-informed, non-pathologizing space where together, we will cultivate empowerment, and let down the burden of shame that so often arises with surviving different types of violence and abuse. I stand with you and am here as a resource and ally to aid in therapeutic processing.
