Trauma Therapy

Trauma Therapy

At Olive Branch Family Therapy, we understand the profound impact that trauma can have on individuals and families. Our therapists specialize in trauma therapy, providing a safe and supportive environment for healing and recovery. Our mission is to help individuals overcome the effects of trauma, regain their strength, and build a brighter future.

Our Approach: EMDR Therapy

At Olive Branch Family Therapy, we utilize Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy as a powerful and evidence-based approach to trauma treatment. EMDR Therapy focuses on reprocessing traumatic memories and experiences that have become stuck in the brain's information processing system. This therapy approach helps individuals process the trauma and develop new, adaptive beliefs about themselves and the world.

Our highly trained and experienced therapists are trained and/or certified in EMDR Therapy and have witnessed the transformative effects it can have on individuals' lives. By integrating elements of cognitive-behavioral therapy and bilateral stimulation techniques, EMDR Therapy helps individuals access and process traumatic memories, reduce distressing symptoms, and promote emotional healing.
