Trauma Therapy in Colorado
Empowering Intrinsic Healing
Trauma can stem from different places. Sometimes it’s a long, sustained exposure to painful experiences. At other times, it’s a sudden, life-altering event. Just like its source can be varied, our reaction to trauma can also vary greatly. Trauma response can take the form of anxiety, guilt, depression, sleeplessness, hypervigilance, and more.
There is only one constant in the volatile emotions that trauma ignites and that is trauma therapy. Trauma therapy provides a safe space to unearth the underlying causes of your negative and self-hampering feelings and so your full self can emerge with clarity and healing.
At Voyages Counseling, our trauma therapy specialists are experienced and skilled at recognizing the unique challenges trauma survivors face. They are committed and capable of empowering you to overcome them.
Our trauma therapy counselors in Centennial, Central Park, Colorado Springs, and Castle Rock are highly trained in evidence-based techniques such as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Accelerate Resolution Therapy (ART). We provide personalized, holistic approaches tailored to your individual needs.
Trauma Therapy – The Role of EMDR and A.R.T Therapy
Trauma therapy is a specialized form of therapy designed to help individuals overcome the psychological and emotional impact of traumatic experiences. It enables people to process and integrate their traumatic memories, emotions, and beliefs.
EMDR Therapy – Unlocking Healing Through Eye Movement
EMDR therapy is a structured approach that helps individuals process distressing memories by focusing on bilateral stimulation, typically in the form of guided eye movements. During EMDR sessions, trauma therapy specialists guide clients to revisit traumatic memories while simultaneously stimulating their eye movements.
This dual focus helps the brain reprocess the memories, allowing individuals to adaptively resolve past traumas. EMDR therapy can desensitize the emotional charge associated with traumatic memories, change negative beliefs about oneself, and promote emotional healing and resilience.
ART Therapy – Accelerated Resolution for Lasting Recovery
Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) is a relatively newer form of trauma therapy that combines elements of cognitive-behavioral therapy, eye movement techniques, and guided imagery.
ART therapy works by guiding individuals to visually and emotionally process traumatic memories, enabling them to reframe negative emotions and sensations associated with the trauma. Through a series of structured exercises, ART therapy helps individuals reach a state of accelerated resolution, allowing them to move past their traumatic experiences more quickly as compared to traditional therapy methods.
Both these forms of trauma therapy are evidence-based and powerful tools in the hands of compassionate, trained, and skilled therapists.
