Do disturbing memories continue to bother you?  Do they interfere with your sleep, work life, relationships?  Flashbacks, nightmares and intrusive thoughts are signs of Post Traumatic Stress
What is trauma?

Trauma is any past experience that continues to bother you in your current life.  As a "trauma therapist" I specialize in alleviating the negative feelings associated with bad memories.  The most effective and best researched technique for trauma is called EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing).  EMDR quickly and effectively helps a person move past the negative thoughts and feelings associated with painful memories.  (Click on "Services" above to see a brief video on EMDR.)  

 

Dr. Raymond offers traditional and alternative approaches to PTSD, depression, low self-esteem, anxiety, and relationship issues.  Certified in EMDR, she specializes in recovery from any and all types of trauma.  Childhood traumas include extreme embarrassment, neglect (needs went unmet), abuse (verbal, physical and/or sexual), being raised by an addicted parent, accidents or other life-threatening incidents.  Examples of adult traumas include car accidents, other life-threatening incidents, rape, and abuse by significant other (verbal or physical).  Work-related trauma, such as that experienced by first responders (police, fire fighters, EMS, 911 dispatchers or military veterans), is a particular area of interest for her.
