Trauma Healing:
Find freedom again with trauma therapy for survivors in Houston and throughout Texas 

Get unstuck from life and embark on a flourishing future.

Do you often find yourself stuck in your head, losing track of the life that's playing out in front of you?

Have unpleasant life experiences been replaying in your mind, like an unwelcome loop? Do memories hold you captive, making it feel as though time is frozen? Are you finding it hard to trust other people, always on alert, or even disconnected from your own sense of self? Perhaps your relationships seem like an impossible puzzle, and you constantly feel as though the dynamics are off-kilter.

 

The aftermath of a crisis and the impact of its trauma can weave into every corner of your life, making it difficult to break free from the grasp of the past. These effects hit us deep in the core, and they can make living authentically seem impossible amidst the chaos of each day. If this resonates with you, rest assured that you're not alone in these feelings.

My Approach

In therapy, I employ a blend of therapeutic modalities, with a primary focus on Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) combined with Internal Family Systems (IFS). Through EMDR and IFS, you can achieve the following:

  • Rediscover safety within your body and the world around you

  • Unlock your spirit to a full range of emotions

  • Cultivate confidence and trust in yourself and others

  • Achieve acceptance of past experiences, leading to spiritual liberation

How it Works

EMDR: Shift from "stuckness" to adaptability by rewiring your thought patterns. EMDR uses bilateral stimulation techniques that create a bridge for your mind to process and heal. This can include actions like tapping, eye movement, or auditory cues that activate the left and right hemispheres of your brain. In essence, EMDR allows your brain to reprocess its emotional attachment to traumatic experiences, bringing relief and renewal.

IFS: Learn to lead with your authentic self, fostering harmony among every part of you. By honoring the story of each part of yourself, you will heal your needs and let your most resourced self take the lead.

Your past doesn't need to dictate your present or determine your future. You have the power to heal, flourish, and create a life where trauma's grip loosens its hold. I’ll be a lighthouse, patiently guiding you safely through, shedding light on the dark spots. The journey toward a life unburdened by trauma starts here.
