Helping you move from Trauma 2 Triumphs…. so you can feel safe again

We are Trauma specialist in Atlanta Georgia using EMDR.

You want someone to love you, you feel empty, lonely and sometimes afraid. There he was appearing out of nowhere your soul mate. He is strong, confident, finally a man who knows what he wants. He has charm, good looks and oh that beautiful smile. They are like liquid mercury… They have the ability to change shape and create the life you’ve always wanted. In time you are left wondering “how could this happen to me”, you begin a vicious cycle of self doubt.

I am passionate about helping women overcome the devastating aftermath of being in a relationship with a Narcissistic partner.

Helping women heal from Narcissistic Abuse.

As a trauma specialist, we provide treatment to people who have experienced physical, sexual, and/or emotional abuse. For those who have suffered prolonged, repeated trauma in their lives, the aftereffects are often complex and frequently misidentified. These may include difficulty managing emotions, self-injury, severe anxiety and depression, chronic problems with identity and relationships, intense feelings of guilt and shame. Through therapy, we create a safe and supportive space where the impact of trauma can be faced and explored, where fears and destructive behaviors can be overcome, and where patients can begin to re-establish a sense of safety and connectedness in the world.

 
Like a horror movie it played again in her mind as if somehow her brain was unwilling to let the images go and in it’s attempt to analyse them it made her see it all over again. Simple ideas, simple things she had to get done that day slipped through her mind like so much sand in an hour glass. She stared out of the window at the scudding white clouds and longed to be amongst them, soaring and carefree. She knew the more she tried to suppress it the more it would play again, but she couldn’t help it. In moments she was back in the alley with the cold blackness pushing in on her.
