EMDR Therapy Techniques in Davis, CA

EMDR Therapy: Transforming Lives Through Trauma Healing

As a therapist, there are a few psychotherapy techniques I employ during our sessions. If you have been dealing with the effects of a traumatic life experience, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) can be extremely helpful for you. The goal of EMDR therapy is to allow your brain to properly heal from the emotional wound of a traumatic situation. 

By using a collection of stress-reduction strategies and reprocessing techniques, EMDR can help you get through your traumatic experience, reforming the way you think about the situation and preventing existing triggers from overwhelming you. We will focus on your body’s physical responses to remembering the trauma while incorporating the physical EMDR techniques and positive thinking to establish proper healing.

During our sessions, you can feel comfortable knowing that you will never be pushed to a point of prolonged distress. I will work with you to discover the best psychotherapy techniques for your particular conditions and goals, allowing you to recover from trauma and rewire your thinking.

Marriage & Couples Counseling in Davis, CA

As a licensed marriage and family therapist, I understand how hard it can be for couples to seek help for managing their relationship. The great thing about therapy is that you don’t have to meet any particular standards to take part in it. Whether you’re trying to get past a specific issue together, or would like some premarital guidance, therapy can be a great option that gives you the tools to strengthen your relationship for its entirety.

Those who feel disconnected from their partners can highly benefit from a series of therapy sessions. We’ll get to the root of the issue, helping you rediscover the passion in your relationship and establishing shared meaning along the way. 

Often, therapy can be incredibly helpful for couples who are currently undergoing a major transition in their relationship. This can include revising the boundaries of your relationship, recovering from infidelity, adding children to the mix, or experiencing a significant mutual loss. It can feel as if you each are alone in your thoughts and pain, but with therapy, you’ll get a better understanding of one another while learning how to love each other exactly the way you need.
