Trauma and loss can occur at any age and for this reason, I target treatments specific to the life stage in which the problem occurs. I believe that change is inevitable; however, how you navigate change has a direct impact on the quality of your life and on those around you. For growth to occur, it is vital healthy thoughts are established. As a Licensed Professional Counselor - Supervisor (LPCS) with over thirty years of clinical experience, it is my goal to help explore, implement, and support those decisions that will lead to improvement in a client's lives. Call (972) 522-8448 to schedule an appointment.
By the time a person reaches adulthood, unresolved past issues can affect their success and the way they view themselves and the world. Misbeliefs can stifle dreams and goals, which contribute to the inability to effectively handle new stressors or life problems. Therapy is geared to help adults re-evaluate their lives and challenge false beliefs that are stagnating their success in vocation, relationships, and family. Individual, family, and marital counseling services are available.
EMDR and TRAUMA
One of our therapies used to resolve trauma is scientifically proven EMDR therapy. Using eye movements or other bilateral stimulation such as tappers, EMDR unlocks dysfunctional emotions trapped in the brain and body. As a result the core of depression, anxiety, rage reactions and the like can be cured at the source. EMDR is a more efficient, intense method and has been life changing for many of my clients.

I love to use Art Therapy with Adolescents. The focus is not on the end product and requires no skills. We focus on the process of art and the brain is immediately rewarded by creating of simple projects. Art Therapy stimulates different neural pathways in the brain linked to emotions. Clients that are afraid or reluctant to speak, find Art Therapy to be a easier way to express themselves. Art therapy is a faster way to get to know an individual, establish a relationship, develop trust, and allow for the expression of emotions. Sometimes, trauma and other problems are too difficult to speak about in the first few sessions of therapy. Art therapy is a perfect modality to help adolescents express themselves without having to speak. I use Art Therapy in conjunction with CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and other treatment modalities as needed to increase effectiveness. Call today @972-522-8448 to see if Art Therapy is an appropriate form of treatment for you or your adolescent.
