Open-hearted, non-judgmental awareness of one’s thoughts.
Healing from painful memories and experiences takes courage and a compassionate, understanding presence. In order to find inner peace and resolution, you may need to confront inner demons (e.g. regrets, fears, hurts, resentments, anger). Having a caring and helpful ally in your healing process helps to give necessary distance and perspective, key components in developing insight and compassion for your experience.
In therapy, we seek to repair the damage trauma has caused and help you gain a healthy sense of trust in yourself and in the world. EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and CRM (Comprehensive Resource Model) are both effective therapies that help you heal from trauma and restore a sense of inner peace and trust. By connecting with your internal resources and strengths and reprocessing through traumatic events, you can heal and recover from trauma.
