Today the VA/DoD just released the new 2023 Clinical Guidelines for the management of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) as well as Acute Stress Disorder. We are beyond pleased to see that Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), and Prolonged Exposure (PE) remain the most effective treatments; They are recommended over medications. Read that again – they are recommended OVER medications. Though we know this from anecdotal experience and research, it still is so wonderful to see it in print.
I couldn’t be more excited to make sure you know that every therapist at Waypoints Counseling has been extensively trained and/or certified in EMDR Therapy. It is our goal for every client to leave treatment with us with a new perspective on life and a newfound enjoyment and engagement in the day-to-day. Each of us have witnessed the miraculous impact that EMDR Therapy has had on the special people in our therapy rooms. We get chill bumps when we see it happen and anticipate the profound changes our clients begin to experience as a result.
We are here. We know how to respond to trauma. We know how to help. We know what is possible for you even when you can’t imagine things being different. So, the path begins… we are ready when you are.
