EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) | These practices are easy to adapt based on need and help bring immediate relief of symptoms without any specialized equipment.

Behavior Therapy | Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a common approach to treating trauma which provides a safe and validating experience.

Medication | Some people may need medication to help supplement talk therapy in actively treating anxiety. That is okay. It is also okay if you prefer not to utilize medication.
