When you live life uncertain if spaces have been carved out for you, it impacts your concept of safety; your quality of life; thoughts of self; thereby, your mental health. Cultural and systemic oppression, is an unfortunate part of existence outside of the perceived dominant group. Through art therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and other modalities we can begin to address the impact of oppression on the psyche and decolonize the mind.
Through Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) we can begin to approach your fears and compulsive behaviors. With OCD, it can be a way that is meant to help navigate the world and attempt to ensure safety. By addressing the behaviors we can hope to improve how you manage obsessions and compulsions and therefore how you face the concept of safety.
Living with PTSD can prevent you from living life optimally and often leave you feeling stuck. Using Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Art Therapy, and other therapeutic modalities we may begin to address the trauma that has impacted your quality of life.
