Trauma Therapy in Santa Rosa ~ Sonoma County
Perhaps you are looking for a more intensive therapeutic experience focused on recurrent patterns of disturbing symptoms, overwhelming emotions, or limiting beliefs that get in the way of their day-to-day functioning and that are related to past traumatic experiences. Trauma Intensives involving EMDR, EFT, and Matrix Reimprinting trauma therapies provide this opportunity for motivated individuals to overcome self-defeating patterns. EMDR is research-supported trauma therapy that addresses traumatic memories by helping the nervous system to process memories in a safe manner. EFT, which stands for Emotional Freedom Techniques, is a set of mind-body interventions that involve tapping on acupuncture meridian points while holding specific memories, thoughts, feelings, or physical sensations in mind. The process calms your brain’s limbic system (i.e., the emotional center of the brain), helps the body restore proper energy flow, and consolidate traumatic memories. Matrix Reimprinting is a set of techniques closely related to EFT that combines EFT with "parts work." With both approaches, clients usually notice profound shifts in longstanding, painful issues after just one session.
In my experience as a trauma therapist, I have found no better approach than the combination of EMDR, EFT, and Matrix Reimprinting when it comes to trauma processing. Compared to other exposure-based trauma therapies, during a trauma intensive, we work to calm your nervous system and keep you in your "window of tolerance" throughout the session so that you are not overwhelmed by trauma-related memories, feelings, and sensations. In this way, EMDR, EFT, Matrix Reimprinting can help you to safely and effectively process and release trauma, to resolve difficult symptoms, so that you can get on with life.
Scheduled in two-, three-, or four-hour blocks, I offer trauma intensives for individuals who are looking to jump-start their healing process or supplement other therapeutic modalities they are currently using by diving deep into an immersive experience. There is a large body of research that suggests that tapping is highly effective for a wide range of clinical and peak performance issues.
Some of the issues we can address during an EMDR, EFT, and Matrix Reimprinting intensive include: PTSD & Trauma, Anxiety, Depression, Overwhelming Emotions, Phobias, Relationship Problems, Grief, Anger Management, Shame and Inadequacy, Perfectionism, Athletic Performance, Executive Performance, Creative Blocks, and more.
