In-Office: Cincinnati | Ft. Thomas Virtual: KY, OH Do you feel like you’re always on high alert, waiting for the other shoe to drop? Are chunks of your life missing, leaving blank spots where memories should be? Do you find yourself replaying certain experiences over and over again? If so, you’re not alone. Over 70% of adults have experienced at least one traumatic event in their lifetime. Trauma can leave you feeling like you’re fighting for your life, even when you’re perfectly safe. Unlike other mental health issues, trauma is triggered by an outside event that is so terrible, so intolerable that it leaves an imprint on the brain. As a result, the brain might perceive a threat where none exists. This is why months or even years later, you might feel the same way you did when you first experienced trauma. I know first-hand the way trauma colors every aspect of your life. I also know healing is possible, and your past does not have to define you. Counseling can help you move forward. In a calm, safe, and trusting environment, we will work together to help you heal from the past and find the peace-of-mind you’ve been searching for.
In-Office: Cincinnati Virtual: OH I am an EMDR therapist, in progress of my certification. Married into my use of EMDR are somatic (body-centered) approaches and the Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) to which I am certified in. Body centered approaches help to restore the body removing stored body memories. EMDR focuses on thwarted/maladaptive responses due to stress. With this, we work to identify core touchstone memories and its link to family of origin connection/ to development/ attachment injuries. Our goal in treatment will be to cultivate a deeper sense of understanding, curiosity and compassion for your past self while building and installing resilience in your present self.
