Invisible Wounds Therapy and Wellness is a therapy practice located in Prince Georges County MD providing telehealth services. This practice focuses on the mental health of professionals who struggle with anxiety or trauma. Many of these professionals work in helping professions, including first responders, healthcare workers, and those who regularly struggle with caregiving in their personal or professional lives. IW also works with couples and teenagers or expats adjusting to change because of life transitions or feeling highly anxious or impacted by traumatic events.
The therapists at Invisible Wounds Therapy and Wellness practice many evidence-based, trauma-informed therapy modalities. Clients can benefit from Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, which leverages the brain’s natural functions to place trauma reactions and painful memories in the past. Clients can also benefit from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), which are thought-based therapy approaches that help decrease negative self-talk like criticism or shame. These therapies are helpful for those who have difficulty falling or staying asleep, and those whose ruminations negatively impact their lives.
Invisible Wounds Therapy and Wellness strives to help individuals overcome their trauma and move ahead in their lives. They offer clients relief from difficult emotions and provide them with an empathetic space for healing and growth. IW offers all sessions via telehealth, meaning you will be able to meet your therapist online or virtually for therapy.
Invisible Wounds Therapy and Wellness offers individual therapy for teenagers, young adults, adults and couples. IW also offers support groups or workshops depending on the time of year, please contact us if interested.
