Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR): I am EMDR certified and highly recommend it to all clients I work with.
EMDR was originally utilized for treating trauma, but it is also effective in addressing a wide range of mental health concerns including anxiety, panic, OCD, and depression to name a few. It can be more intense than talk therapy and usually works faster.
Safety Learning of Anxiety: Traditional approaches to anxiety include relaxation techniques and learning ways to reduce your anxiety. Safety Learning is a radically different approach, and it is based on the principles of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT). One of the simplest ways to explain CBT is that if you change the way you think about something, you change your behavior.
I worked at two domestic violence agencies and received formal training at both. Understanding the dynamics, the patterns, and the effects of domestic violence is essential in order to provide effective therapy for survivors. You are not alone, and there is tremendous work that you can do on healing from abuse including learning the facts about domestic violence as well as processing the trauma it has caused in your life.
