Common issues addressed by Rachel Bills Counseling include:
obsessive compulsive disorders
post traumatic stress disorder
grief and loss
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing is an empirically validated psychotherapeutic intervention used to treat the adverse effects of traumatic experiences. By utilizing bilateral stimulation, EMDR activates the brain's natural adaptive information processing system allowing the brain to reprocess and desensitize to traumatic memories.
I utilize evidence based counseling models in a developmentally appropriate way when working with preteens and teens. I support and involve parents in the counseling process to provide holistic care that helps the whole family. Sometimes it's hard to know how to help your struggling teen, counseling is a great place to start.
Individual therapy is a collaborative process between client and clinician. In order to accomplish your therapeutic goals, I utilize an evidence based and integrative approach. I most often use talk-therapy based modalities including Cognitive Behavioral therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy and Internal Family Systems Therapy.
Sometimes we are in crisis and just need help regaining our footing and finding a next step. I am equipped to help you reground yourself after a crisis and find the long term care you need. I am trained in an EMDR based protocol called 'A-tip' that is designed to reduce distress and prevent PTSD related symptoms after a crisis.
