Shurrie Weatherman Behavioral Health
I am a trauma-focused therapist, which means I have additional professional education and training specific to the unique needs of individuals who have experienced trauma. I am a certified EMDR therapist and the evidence-based modality that I primarily use is Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). This allows the brain to resume its natural healing process. This is a structured therapy that encourages the client to briefly focus on the trauma memory while simultaneously experiencing bilateral stimulation, which is associated with a reduction in the vividness and emotion associated with the trauma memories. My commitment to the client is to be fully present and engaged to facilitate safety and security in our therapeutic relationship.
