PTSD COUNSELING & ANXIETY THERAPY WITH A TRAUMA THERAPIST
Living with trauma issues prevents you from fully engaging in your present-day life. Maybe you can't stop obsessing and replaying certain scenes over and over in your mind. Or you feel afraid and unsafe, agitated or apathetic and hopeless. You might be wondering why you suddenly feel all this pent-up rage or anger, and everything you've tried to manage it isn't working. You may have headaches, upset stomach, muscle aches, insomnia and fatigue.
You can find freedom and take back your life! I am a counselor for teens and adults in the Fernandina Beach area, and together we can help you feel safer, stronger, and in control. True healing occurs when the nervous system can be calmed. I will teach you valuable skills and give you a variety of tools to restore calm and achieve greater balance between the mind-body connection. Research has proven the importance of mindfulness activities and using different parts of the brain to heal from trauma and chronic trauma.
ADDITIONAL THERAPY SERVICES TO TREAT TRAUMA AND PTSD SYMPTOMS
Some people who have memory lapse or find themselves triggered by certain sights or sounds may be interested in treatments such as EMDR and Brainspotting to find immediate and lasting relief. I can refer you to some local skilled clinicians if you'd like more information about these treatments. They can be very beneficial on their own or as an additional part of the therapy process.
It's hard work to explore and heal from trauma, but you don't have to do any of it alone! If you're ready to live without fear, please reach out! Compass Christian Counseling can help!
