Resilient Life Therapy offers psychotherapy and counseling focused on helping individuals resolve problems at their roots in a brief intensive format.
We specialized in a trauma-informed approach that sees symptoms and problems as resulting from unresolved (stuck) experiences in the past. Trauma is any experience that left the person feeling vulnerable and overwhelmed. Trauma is subjective and is experienced differently by different people. Sometimes trauma is a car accident in adulthood and sometimes trauma is the repetitive sharp responses one received from a parent or caregiver. Whatever the adversity (another name for trauma) may be it is driving present day symptoms, often undetected. Once these adverse life experiences are identified and resolved (using such approaches as EMDR and Coherence Therapy) symptoms naturally remit and client's start to feel better.
Using a brief intensive format we target problems and when problems are resolved we encourage clients to discontinue therapy to re-engage their life with their newfound insight and freedom. We nurture an open door policy with our clients which means that they can always return to therapy should another problem surface that they want to target and resolve.
Oh Jess, what a gem. She's thoughtful, kind, responsive, professional, thorough, encouraging – the kind of person we all deserve to have in our lives. I feel lucky to know her.
