Therapy for Life Transitions

Adulting is hard.

Perhaps you are going through a major life change such as a breakup, graduating from college, or starting a new job. You feel that the weight of the world is on your shoulders, and it seems that everyone else has it figured out except for you. Whether it’s stress about school, family, that ex you just can’t seem to get past, or work, therapy can help you work through these challenges and support your ability to move forward and gain confidence.

Trauma Therapy Using ART

Life’s challenges can feel dark, heavy, or even impossible to deal with.

You’ve probably heard that trauma rewires the brain…it actually rewires all parts of you. If you’ve been trying to make long-lasting changes through years of talk therapy, there’s a reason why you may not be making progress.
Trauma leaves an imprint in our amygdala, the brain’s fear center, making us easily triggered. Trauma can affect:
🧠 Thoughts & Beliefs: Your ability to think clearly and make decisions deeply influences your beliefs, like “I’m not good enough.”
❤️ Emotions: Overcoming emotional turbulence, feelings such as shame, guilt, fear, anger, and pain.
👥 Connections: Compromising connection with both ourselves and others.
💪 Physical Well-Being: Creating physical tension in muscles and joints, affecting sleep, body temperature, and the immune system.
True healing begins by helping the body find calm and safety.
ART is an eye movement therapy that is different from traditional talk therapy. You’ll find relief from the memories that play on a loop in your brain. And you don’t have to talk in detail about what happened, unless you choose too. With the use of the eye movements, we can rescript distressing memories and images stored in our brain so they no longer feel painful, overwhelming, and distressing. Clients report feeling relief in as little as 1-5 sessions. To learn more about ART, schedule a free consultation, or visit
