Professional statement

Hello, I am an experienced Trauma Therapist trained in EMDR and Progressive Counting (PC). Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is a unique mind-body based intervention most known for treating PTSD, generalized anxiety, depression, and performance anxiety. PC is a psychotherapy procedure for resolving trauma or loss memories via memory reconsolidation. I offer 100% virtual sessions. EMDR is a treatment approach to help people recover from traumatic memories or difficult life events. PC is aimed at resolving traumatic memories. Both are effective, efficient treatments; treatment process lasts on average 3-6 months; longer for complex trauma.
