Anxiety, Trauma and Posttraumatic Stress Disorder

Anxiety, Trauma and Posttraumatic Stress Disorder

I believe not only that trauma is curable, but that the healing process can be a catalyst for profound awakening – a portal opening to emotional and genuine spiritual transformation.

-Peter Levine, Healing Trauma

Do you often feel anxious, worried, restless or on edge?  Chronic anxiety can result in fatigue, difficulty concentrating, irritability, muscle tension and sleep disturbance.  Do you have panic attacks?  Symptoms can include rapid heart rate, sweating, shaking, feeling short of breath, chest pain, nausea, dizziness, and can lead to a fear of dying or going crazy.  I can guide you to understand and manage your emotions better, to learn self-soothing strategies, resolve underlying issues, and to live a more peaceful, balanced life. 

If you have experienced trauma, including emotional, verbal, physical or sexual abuse; neglect; attachment wounds/loss; assault; war; witnessing violence or death, you may have PTSD or other chronic symptoms that interfere with the quality of  your life and relationships.  Symptoms of PTSD include distressing memories, dreams, flashbacks, or reactivity to similar events; avoidance of reminders; negative beliefs about yourself, others or the world; irritability, angry outbursts, self-destructive behavior, problems with concentration and sleep disturbance.   EMDR therapy is one of the most effective methods to rapidly treat and resolve symptoms stemming from traumatic experiences, whether the trauma was from early in your life, a more recent event, or anything in between. 

I have seen traumatized individuals transform themselves and their lives into something far beyond anything they had ever experienced before or even thought possible.  It is such a gift for me to be a part of this profound experience.  It inspires me in my work every day.
