PTSD & Trauma
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy is an evidence-based, scientifically-validated treatment commonly used to treat PTSD, anxiety, depression, and panic disorder. EMDR works to reprocess unresolved traumatic memories or other adverse life experiences to decrease emotional distress and physiological arousal in response to stress. It can be effective in helping bring relief from an array of challenges and life stressors.
Cognitive Processing Therapy is a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy approach used to treat PTSD that works to highlight the impact of thoughts on feelings and behaviors. CPT addresses how thoughts and beliefs surrounding traumatic experiences impact our perceptions of ourselves and the world. This evidence-based approach helps clients to identify unhelpful and often unrealistic thought patterns that are keeping them stuck in their trauma and preventing them from healing. Brainspotting is a powerful, focused treatment method that works by identifying, processing, and releasing core neurophysiological sources of emotional/body pain, trauma, dissociation, and a variety of other challenging symptoms.
Brainspotting is a simultaneous form of diagnosis and treatment, enhanced with Biolateral sound, which is deep, direct, and powerful yet focused and containing.
Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorders
Adjusting to parenthood can be a challenging process. While men and women often experience some mild mood changes during or after the birth of a child, as many as 20% of women experience significant symptoms of anxiety and depression. While the term “postpartum depression” is most commonly used, perinatal mood disorders include depression during pregnancy or postpartum, anxiety during pregnancy and postpartum, pregnancy or postpartum obsessive-compulsive disorder, postpartum PTSD, bipolar mood disorders, and postpartum psychosis. Women of every culture, age, income level, and race can develop perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, and with informed care, you can fully recover. Working with a professional trained in perinatal mental health can assist parents in adjusting to this new phase of life.
In light of recent events surrounding COVID-19, Good Life Therapy offers telehealth services to new and existing clients. We use a HIPAA-compliant video platform for all of our meetings to protect client privacy. If you would like more information or to get scheduled please call or book online today.
Play therapy is a type of therapy that allows children to express how they think and feel through art or play materials. Within the session, children show the counselor (a trained play therapist) what they are experiencing through play. Often, children have not yet developed the language needed to express how they feel, and therefore a trained play therapist can utilize their skills to make inferences about the child and what it feels like to live in their world.
The therapist will then use play to communicate back to the child their understanding of what is happening in their lives and assist the child (and/or family) in exploring other behaviors or attitudes. All toys and materials within the playroom have been purposefully chosen to allow children to express themselves therapeutically. The play therapist will include parents, caregivers, or teachers as needed in the therapeutic process in order to best meet the needs of the child.
Psychiatric medication management
Medication management can play an important role in your mental health care. In many instances, the combination of medication and therapy has been found to improve treatment outcomes. Medication management providers focus on medication appropriateness, effectiveness, safety, and adherence to treatment goals and improving your mental health. For 1 in 6 Americans, medication is part of their mental health care plan. Medications are not one size fits all, so working closely with your provider will help to assess the best options for your particular situation and your body.
