Laura Lee Townsend
Associate Marriage & Family Therapist, Trauma Therapist Trained in EMDR -
YOU JUST WANT TO FEEL BETTER. Trauma has turned you into someone you don’t even recognize. You’re constantly on edge and can’t sleep. Or if sleep comes, it’s often restless and filled with nightmares. You lash out at the people you love most and then feel tremendous guilt and shame; no one understands what’s going on with you.
Or maybe you stuff the hurt, pain, and disappointment down deep inside where no one knows or sees it. You know how to put on a good face for everyone else. Maybe you turn to drugs or alcohol so you don’t have to feel the pain, relive the past or face the future. The emptiness and loneliness seem unbearable. Or this may not be you, but it describes your loved one who you can’t seem to reach no matter how hard you try.
I specialize in EMDR therapy that is an evidence-based approach to work through a variety of problems – traumas, addiction, depression, anxiety, and phobias to name a few. I welcome individuals, couples, and families who are eager for help and support. I am a best fit for people who want someone with a non-judgmental, empathetic, and collaborative style.
I provide my clients with a holistic approach to treatment that takes into account their unique environment, experiences, and histories that impact overall health and wellbeing. Healing is possible. If you think I may be an ideal fit for you, let’s talk. We can work together to create a new, authentic life you love.
