My Approach to Helping
Don't Let Past Traumatic Experiences Define you. Individual Therapy in Sand Diego and On-line Support in California.
Heal Naturally and Create the Future You Deserve.
Traumatic experiences are hard to shake.
You're sitting in a restaurant when a smell suddenly brings you back to your mom's kitchen. The same knot of dread you had when you were eight fills your stomach, and you lose your appetite.
You can't focus on the conversation with your wife as you're transported back into that awful memory. Wiping your sweaty palms on your pants, you attempt to slow your heart rate down – but It's too late. Feeling the panic attack coming, you rush to the restaurant bathroom and lock yourself in the stall.
You can't move past your past.
Over the last few years, your life has shrunk as you try to avoid "triggers." Fewer places feel "safe," and your wife complains that you never want to go anywhere.
You've tried to bury the painful memories and move on with your life, but they still affect you.
You don't know how to deal with the emotions inside of you. You find yourself irritable and snapping at your wife over tiny things.
EMDR heals your mind.
Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing is one of the most well-studied and effective treatments for people who've experienced traumatic events. Through our work together, I will use gentle bilateral stimulation of your brain while carefully moving through your memories.
The process involves eye movement, light tapping, or sound in a soothing environment to activate your brain's innate healing ability. As the treatment progresses, your emotional reactions lessen, and your body can finally relax.
Lastly, you begin to experience the trauma differently, it doesn’t have the same emotional impact on you. It’s almost as if you’re viewing your past through someone else's eyes.
Unencumbered by Trauma.
Traumatic memories are no longer repetitive, intrusive mental bullies. No longer having mental bullies can lead to finally feeling capable to leave the pain in the past.
The negative feelings connected to the past lose power to sneak up and destroy the rest of a perfectly good day.
Being aware of the past without leading to a sudden reaction or response which occurred previously can be empowering. No longer living with so much anxiety, or panic provides empowerment to face uncertainty with courage and resilience.
It's time you enjoyed your life again.
Stop the night terrors and painful nightmares. Enjoy an evening out with your wife without worrying about flashbacks or panic attacks. Reclaim your peace of mind.
