Counselor in McKinney, TX
I specialize in the treatment of adverse reactions to traumatic events; possible reactions include high stress, nightmares related to the event, flashbacks of the event, feeling “on-guard” or “jumpy”, and more. For treatment of this, I provide options such as EMDR and Trauma-focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, among others.
I have training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, which is all about the linkage among thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. This type of therapy focuses on thought processing. A better way of thinking is the goal because it will lead to improved mood and healthy behaviors.
Globally, I work with stress in various ways. I believe that stress is the active agent in many mood disorders like depression and anxiety. When you feel overwhelmed with work, family, and life in general, you may notice emerging symptoms of depression or anxiety. If you have a history of childhood trauma that was never treated, you may notice it resurfacing when stressed. I use thought processing and problem solving strategies to treat the root of the problem.
