Catherine M. Blake, MA, LPC, Certified Therapist in EMDR
Trauma/Post Traumatic Stress Counseling
Trauma can be an invisible demon affecting your actions even though you are not aware.
Some of these are longterm health-related issues like depression, low energy, digestive problems, frequent crying, abrupt mood swings, trouble sleeping, or inability to bond with others.
If there was a recent event, you might avoid certain circumstances, sensitivity to light and sound, difficulty dealing with stress, exaggerated startle or emotional reactions, amnesia.
I can help you!
Different people have different tolerances for dealing with their trauma. First, we work on giving you lots of ways to tolerate BIG energy/emotions. Some of these include deep breathing, grounding, centering, visualizations of a safe place, etc.
Next, we decide what healing method is right for you.
To sequence or “let go” or integrate trauma into your body, I use EMDR (Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing). EMDR is an evidence-based method of reducing the stuck energy and leaving a memory of the trauma, but it has a neutral energy charge.
Some people prefer Sensorimotor psychotherapy. We do a Body Scan, then follow the lead of where your body wants to unravel today.
