Therapy After a Brain Injury
Are you recovering from an Acquired Brain Injury? Are you struggling with mood swings, emotional fatigue, brain fog, and cognitive overload? Many of my clients feel a sense of relief when we meet because I get it. I understand the struggle, pain, grief, difficulty, and unique paralyzing feeling after suffering a brain injury. My clients have told me that understanding and having a focused path for the grief and emotions that are so intense are immensely helpful!
Therapy is helpful following a brain injury for many reasons. Some individuals may need to discuss the role or relationship changes that they have experienced after a brain injury; adjusting to a different version of you isn’t always easy. Often, individuals with a brain injury can develop depression, anxiety, and posttraumatic reactions that require compassionate mental health treatment.
I'm here to help.
I find that many of my clients have traumatic reactions after their acquired brain injury. For many of you it was a life threatening experience...I realized that many of my clients needed a trauma therapy after their brain injury to help their body realize that the event was no longer happening. The therapy I use that has evidenced based research is EMDR.
Ok...What is that???
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an extensively researched, effective psychotherapy method proven to help people recover from trauma and other distressing life experiences, including PTSD, anxiety, depression, and panic disorders. I am currently trained in EMDR and integrate it into all my therapy work. I am currently in the process of certification and consulting with an expert in EMDR and brain injury. It is my desire to especially assist with those who are experiencing anxiety and trauma from their brain injury.
I find that once the trauma is treated, my clients experience cognitive gains, they remember more they are able to hold more in attention. When you are ready, I then help you with attention, memory, and total brain health! I have many tools in my tool box for that including the Cogsmart program.
