Elise Bennett treat from a relationship perspective that incorporates family systems.

EMDR TRAUMA THERAPY
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing is a way to help people with trauma beyond traditional talk therapy. EMDR is an individual psychotherapy that uses bilateral stimulation of the brain to help people process certain experiences. SAMHSA's National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices cites EMDR as evidence-based practice for treatment of PTSD, anxiety and depression symptoms. Their review of the evidence also indicated that EMDR leads to an improvement in mental health functioning. Elise has found EMDR very effective with people suffering from anxiety, large and small traumas, and significant childhood and life events.
