Clinical Focus

Whitney offers specialized attachment and trauma-informed counseling to adults. Attachment theory, adaptive information processing through eye movement desensitization reprocessing (EMDR), somatic-based interventions and other person-centered therapies within a Christian worldview provide the support and guidance needed to heal from trauma and other challenging situations.  

Melody offers specialized trauma-informed counseling to adults, using a variety of person-centered therapies within a Christian worldview to provide support and guidance. These include EMDR and sandtray therapies, both of which are useful in facilitating the processing of difficult experiences.  

Therapeutic Benefits/Risks

The counseling process involves benefits and risks. Risks may include experiencing uncomfortable feelings, such as sadness, guilt, anxiety, anger, frustration, loneliness and helplessness because the process of counseling often requires discussing the unpleasant aspects of life; however, counseling has been shown to have benefits for individuals who participate in the process. 

Counseling often leads to a significant reduction in feelings of distress, increased satisfaction in interpersonal relationships, greater personal awareness and insight, increased skills for managing stress and resolutions to specific problems. 

But, there are no guarantees about what will happen. 

Counseling requires a very active effort on your part. To receive the most benefit from this process, you will have to work on topics out of session that are discussed in-session.
