Modalities:

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR): Emily is trained in EMDR, a therapeutic approach that helps clients process and integrate traumatic memories. EMDR involves eye movements or other forms of bilateral stimulation to activate the brain's natural healing processes.
 

Play Therapy: Emily uses play therapy with children and adolescents to help them express their feelings and experiences through play. This non-verbal approach can be particularly helpful for young clients who may struggle to articulate their emotions.

Mindfulness: Emily teaches clients mindfulness techniques to help them cultivate a greater awareness of their thoughts, emotions, and physical sensations. This can lead to increased self-regulation and reduced stress levels.

This evidence-based approach can be effective in treating a range of mental health conditions, including depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
