we offer TRAUMA COUNSELING
Asking for help is worth it and you will be in good hands.
Most importantly, Drishti is a boutique, practice housed in a small, private building where you can come to do the work. You will be treated with respect and compassion. We offer Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) to address past traumas, but we also have other techniques, too. Our goal is to support you to feel better. It's amazing what can happen when we feel heard.
What is EMDR?
According to EMDRIA.org, "Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an extensively researched, effective psychotherapy method proven to help people recover from trauma and other distressing life experiences, including PTSD, anxiety, depression, and panic disorders."

You should know you are not alone.
Healing from past traumatic experiences takes work, but provides relief and opportunity. At Drishti, we meet you where you are and provide a safe place to work through trauma.
A study published in the Journal of Traumatic Stress revealed that post traumatic stress disorder is perhaps more common than you think. Just over eight percent of people in our community will experience PTSD in their lifetimes, 4.7% within the past year, and 3.8% in the past six month period. When we include those who don’t fit typical PTSD criteria, the numbers are likely much higher.
Trauma, without question, can significantly reduce your quality of life. While the signs and symptoms can feel complex and at times overwhelming, feeling better is more than possible. In fact, with trauma therapy we expect you will begin feeling better as soon as we implement our compassionate, evidence-based techniques together.
If these sound like you:
Sometimes I struggle to feel like myself.
I struggle with memories from past events and I would like to learn how to manage them.
It's hard for me to feel completely safe and at ease.
I worry a lot.
Sometimes it is difficult for me to feel completely happy because of what I've experienced in my life.
I would like to work with a professional to talk about how I feel.
I believe my life could feel easier and I can feel happier.
Therapy that focuses on past traumas may offer the ideal therapeutic approach.
But - it's not one size fits all. At Drishti, we will work with you to get to know you and understand your needs and then work together to establish a plan for your to reach your goals and potential.
