Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, Agoraphobia, Social Anxiety Disorder, Separation Anxiety, Phobias, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, And Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Kim Seelbrede uses a very effective protocol and combination of techniques when working with clients who struggle with anxiety. Her high success rate for helping clients overcome anxiety using combined mindfulness, CBT and EMDR techniques means that clients experience healing at the level of the nervous system, as well as gaining important self-empowerment tools to handle future situations. With fewer anxiety symptoms, her clients report an improvement in both personal and professional aspects of their lives in addition to improved productivity, motivation, focus and a decrease in procrastination. Using the nervous system healing techniques of EMDR combined with the emotion and thought management techniques of CBT, clients are able to effectively control their anxiety symptoms. Because CBT is skill-based, clients feel empowered and are able to manage and control their anxiety symptoms. Because EMDR therapy heals at the level of the nervous system, clients find that they spend less time doing CBT homework, and are more often than not, able to maintain and return to a state of self-regulation.
Psychotherapy For Depression
Major Depression, Dysthymia, Postpartum, Premenstrual, Seasonal Affective, Atypical, Situational, Bipolar
Depression and anxiety symptoms are a common reason teens, adolescents and adults seek treatment. Therapy and the support of talking with a therapist helps resolve depression and anxiety symptoms for many. Psychotherapists and psychologists are trained to provide their clients with helpful tools, coping skills and ways to challenge and change or accept the thoughts, feelings and behaviors that may contribute to depression. Understanding the source of the problem or situations that trigger depressive episodes may not always lead to symptom relief. Kim Seelbrede uses an integrative approach when working with depression symptoms that includes: psychodynamic psychotherapy, interpersonal therapy, cognitive therapy, EMDR therapy, lifestyle changes, mindfulness and acceptance. For some, a combination of psychotherapy and medication offers the safest, most comprehensive healing approach. Milder forms of depression can be effectively treated with supportive lifestyle changes.
