The approach and treatment of trauma is not a universal, one-size-fits-all approach. However, some common approaches can include:
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.
Wellness | Often, clients report success with yoga, acupuncture, grounding techniques and other holistic approaches to supplement treatment.
