Coping with Traumatic Stress: A Therapy Group for Frontline Workers

Description

The therapist will use resourcing techniques from EMDR therapy to help the client self-regulate.  The client will learn how to focus on being in the parasympathetic state outside of work. The client will learn how to stay grounded in the present moment.  The client will learn to accept what is and how to make sense out of his or her pain.  The therapist will provide other tools.  The program will last 12-weeks, is a closed group, and is confidential.

Group Therapist

Danielle Ojeabulu is a Board Certified Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Texas, who works with adult individuals, couples, families, and groups with a focus on Black/Indigenous People of Color (BIPOC), Christian counseling, and healing the wounded soul. Many of her current clients have found it easy to trust Danielle because of her empathic and non-judgmental style. Danielle attracts people of many cultures who have been traumatized in their early childhood and teenage years and provides a safe space for them to process their thoughts and emotions using EMDR Therapy.

Danielle’s approach is rooted in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, an evidence-based approach that focuses on helping clients understand how their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are interconnected, so that they can begin to make targeted change. She works to help clients understand their behavioral response to external stressors and begin to problem-solve ways to introduce moments of calm to choose to respond rather than react in the face of change. Danielle is focused on helping her clients rewire their brain to believe new thoughts and cancel unhelpful ones.

Danielle’s priority in starting with a new client is building the therapeutic alliance and trust so that the work of therapy can flow to the advantage of the client. She offers telehealth therapy to her clients to make therapy accessible to all.
