If you or someone you know is experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma, or any other mental health challenges, I want you to know that you are not alone. It's tough to deal with these issues on your own, and that's where Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy or Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) can help.

Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing

EMDR therapy is an incredibly effective psychotherapy method that can help you recover from trauma and other stress-related symptoms. What's great about EMDR is that it's different from other therapies because it doesn't require you to talk in detail about the distressing issue or problem you're facing. Instead, EMDR allows your brain to carry out its natural healing process and return to a state of emotional well-being.

If you're struggling to sleep through the night, experiencing physical symptoms or chronic pain that doesn't seem to have a medical basis, or are feeling stuck in a slump, EMDR therapy can help. The best part is that it can be used on its own or in combination with other therapeutic approaches, and for many clients, it can be completed in fewer sessions than other types of therapy. It's the fast track to healing!

EMDR therapy is suitable for children and adults of all ages and can be used to address a wide range of challenges, including anxiety, panic attacks, and phobias, chronic illness and medical issues, depression and bipolar disorders, dissociative disorders, eating disorders, grief and loss, pain, performance anxiety, and personality disorders.

EMDR sessions are offered in 60-90 minute sessions (age 14+) or 2-6 hour intensives (age 16+). 

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

If you're looking for a comprehensive approach to therapy that can help with a wide range of mental health issues, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, or DBT, may be the right choice for you. DBT has been found to be highly effective in treating borderline personality disorder, depression, anxiety, and more.

DBT includes several different modules, including mindfulness, emotion regulation, interpersonal effectiveness, and distress tolerance. These modules can help you learn to be present in the moment, manage intense emotions in healthy ways, improve your communication skills and build stronger relationships, and cope with distress without resorting to harmful behaviors.

Children and teens
