Insight Counseling Center utilizes a variety of therapies to help you heal including, Client-centered, CBT, Solution Focused. However, EMDR will be the primary method used in order to accelerate your treatment.
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a powerful psychotherapeutic practice initially developed by Dr. Francine Shapiro in the late 1980's to treat troubling symptoms of trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder. It has been used worldwide since then to help clients come to terms with a wide variety of troubling conditions and problems. It is used within a comprehensive treatment approach to accelerate the treatment of a wide range of clinical issues. It is used at the Insight Counseling Center to more quickly resolve many life disabling problems, emotions and thoughts.
As an EMDR instructor and therapist, I am able to offer clients the most up to date EMDR treatment. I not only utilize the EMDR protocol, but can provide an extensive array of advanced protocols and interventions for your specific issues. I specialize in clients for whom therapy has not worked.
We offer Intensive therapy sessions, 3-10 days of therapy,
in order to jump start your healing!
Traditional therapy occurs one hour a week for months or years. Intensive therapy provides a jumpstart to healing as months of therapy are compacted in a 3-10 days of therapy. Roxanne has had such great success with the intensive model, that she no longer sees clients one hour a week. Days and times can be adjusted to fit a client's schedule and financial considerations.
Below are some of the frequently asked questions regarding EMDR with responses provided from the EMDR International Association website, http://emdria.org
Roxanne believes in the power of play therapy as a way for children to work through problems, learn appropriate responses and become socially and emotionally well. Parents and educators acknowledge that for most young children verbal communication, especially regarding problems, is very difficult. Through play therapy, Insight Counseling provides a way for children to "talk" about their problems in a nonverbal way. Roxanne has extensive experience counseling young children and families in a variety of settings and is a Registered Play Therapy Supervisor. Roxanne co-authored a chapter, "Play Therapy Techniques with Very Young At-Risk Children in Child Care Settings", published in the book Play Therapy with Very Young Children.
