You wonder if life will ever be normal again. You've tried for so long to avoid facing what happened, but it feels like the worst moment or moments of your life are lurking just below the surface. They're always there no matter what you do to numb the pain.
But it doesn't have to be this way.
At Anew Counseling, I want to help you take back control of your life. I use Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy, or EMDR, to help you overcome your past. EMDR is a little bit different than traditional talk therapy. You won't just come in and talk about your day. Instead, we'll work through your memories and look at how they're connected to other parts of your life. However, we'll use something called "bilateral stimulation" to make this processing a little easier and certainly more effective than if we just talked about what happened.
Untreated PTSD symptoms often get worse. On the surface, it seems easier to keep avoiding the trauma. However, people that don't address the trauma frequently experience depression, difficulty at work, problems with friendships or relationships, and loneliness.
You deserve more. I'm here to help. The truth is that facing your trauma might feel uncomfortable at first. However, it does work and can get you through the pain faster and easier than if you continue to avoid your feelings.
I believe that everyone desires and deserves true connection and healing. As a therapist, I specialize in helping individuals and couples recover when porn, sex addictions, and general problematic sexual behaviors have caused pain. I offer supportive counseling services to help, whether the behavior is currently an issue, has recently been discovered, or happened many years ago.
At my Fort Worth, TX counseling clinic, I offer counseling services for individuals struggling with a variety of issues. In addition to traditional PTSD treatment and trauma therapy, I offer specialized help for sex and porn addiction and counseling for spouses/partners who were cheated on. Additionally, I offer couples counseling and affair recovery to help committed couples make a marriage or relationship work even after problematic sexual behaviors have occurred. I’m here to support you on your journey to freedom and healing.
