Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
For clients who are struggling with the lasting negative impacts of overwhelming traumatic events, Nemeth Counseling offers an evidence-based treatment modality called EMDR. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy allows the brain’s information processing system to naturally heal itself, much like the body naturally heals after a physical injury. The practice utilizes bilateral stimulation to mimic the Rapid Eye Movement (REM) that occurs during sleep. When combined with visualization, individuals are able to process experiences that were not processed at the time of the targeted memory. This reprocessing of the memory allows for the transformation of the meaning of distressing events. Although the treatment was established to address trauma and PTSD, EMDR can be used to treat an array of adverse life experiences, including anxiety, complicated grief, phobias, dissociative disorders, performance anxiety, body dysmorphic disorders, personality disorders, stress reduction, and more.
Trauma Program for Children (TFCBT)
Children and adolescents often face challenges resulting from unexpected or traumatic experiences in their lives. Nemeth Counseling offers a research-based counseling program that is proven to help. Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) utilizes assessment, education, and coping skills to prepare the child or adolescent to create a narrative, or life story, to process the thoughts and feelings related to the distressing event(s). TFCBT includes the use of parent sessions to facilitate healing and success outside of counseling. The traumatic events this program can provide assistance for include parental divorce, loss of a loved one, physical and sexual abuse, neglect, bullying, and many others. This program is offered for children and adolescents ages 4 to 18.
