Trauma can take many forms. It can include major catastrophic life events. Alternately, trauma can be less intense but chronic, continually reinforcing beliefs such as “I’m not good enough”, “I’m worthless”, “I’m powerless”, or “I have no control”. There may be intrusive thoughts and memories disrupting daily life.
Free yourself from pain and achieve inner peace.
Trauma therapy is delicate work. The first thing we focus on is building a sense of safety and coping skills. The use of EMDR helps the brain rework upsetting memories, creating a more positive outlook and inner calmness. Then, you can truly let go of the past and experience genuine healing.
"Throughout my life I was exposed to verbal, physical, and sexual abuse, which left me feeling insecure and overwhelmed, and obsessing over my thoughts. Elana helped me learn skills I could use to manage from day to day. Then she suggested EMDR and although I was skeptical at first, it helped me to reprocess memories, images, and feelings without reliving each experience painfully. Now I can trust again, feel stable and in control of my life, and am just having so much fun feeling confident. I’m finally looking forward to having a happy future!” -M.L.
