Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
Trauma is an emotional response to a terrible event... Immediately after the event, shock and denial are typical. Longer term reactions include unpredictable emotions, flashbacks, strained relationships and even physical symptoms like headaches or nausea. (Adapted from the APA Help Center article, “Recovering emotionally from disaster.”)
EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. It is a form of therapy that helps people heal from trauma or other distressing life experiences. EMDR therapy has been extensively researched and has demonstrated effectiveness for trauma. (EMDRIA.org)
As a trained EMDR therapist, I can help you navigate traumatic events through the use of bilateral stimulation/eye-movements (EMDR).
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a short-term, goal-oriented psychotherapy treatment that takes a hands-on, practical approach to problem-solving. Its goal is to change patterns of thinking or behavior that are behind people's difficulties, and so change the way they feel

As a CBT trained clinician, I can help you recognize self-defeating negative automatic thoughts and teach you how to change them.
Narrative therapy is a form of counseling that views people as separate from their problems. This allows clients to get some distance from the issue to see how it might actually be helping them, or protecting them, more than it is hurting them. With this new perspective, individuals feel more empowered to make changes in their thought patterns and behavior and “rewrite” their life story for a future that reflects who they are, what they are capable of, and what their purpose is, separate from their problems.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is a comprehensive, evidence-based treatment. Dialectical behavioral therapy(DBT) is an effective combination of cognitive and behavioral therapies, https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/hope-eating-disorder-recovery/201609/what-is-dbt .
“The goal of DBT is to transform negative thinking patterns and destructive behaviors into positive outcomes. The patient populations for which DBT has the most empirical support include parasuicidal women with borderline personality disorder (BPD), but there have been promising findings for patients with BPD and substance use disorders (SUDs), persons who meet criteria for binge-eating disorder, and depressed elderly patients. Although DBT has many similarities with other cognitive-behavioral approaches, several critical and unique elements must be in place for the treatment to constitute DBT. Some of these elements include (a) serving the five functions of treatment, (b) the biosocial theory and focusing on emotions in treatment, (c) a consistent dialectical philosophy, and (d) mindfulness and acceptance-oriented interventions.”
