Core Focused Grief and Trauma Relief Therapy
Grief is a natural response to the death of someone you love or know. There’s an organic process of emotional healing that takes place and it takes time and effort to mend a heart that’s been shattered by loss.
But, when grief is long lasting, unresolved, or traumatically induced, it can often feel debilitating, robbing you of joy, motivation, energy, and sense of purpose.
To alleviate your pain and suffering I offer a short term intensive grief therapy that dramatically reduces the sadness and trauma of loss. This form of therapy was pioneered in 1995 by former Veteran’s Administration psychologist Dr. Allan Botkin. It’s an adaptation of a highly effective and evidence-based trauma resolution therapy known as EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Response). I call it Core Focused Grief and Trauma Relief Therapy because the core outcome of this therapy is swift and lasting relief from overwhelming grief and trauma.
To give you a quick overview, Core Focused Grief and Trauma Relief Therapy is typically done over two consecutive days with a 2-hour (or more) in-person session each day. A phone interview precedes the sessions. If other trauma relief work needs to be done first, (and this is very common), we would schedule separate, preliminary trauma resolution sessions. Core Focused Grief and Trauma Relief Therapy is appropriate for you any time after at least 6 months have passed since your time of loss. (The 6 months immediately following your loss are for your natural healing process to occur).
