Rachel Dash-Dougherty, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Waterford
***Accepting New Clients*** Have you had it with being stuck? Does it hurt enough to make a change? I have a tool box of techniques and skills to share with you to release and work through your sadness, reactions, fears, compulsive behaviors or anything that is holding you back. If you are ready- to take a step forward in your recovery, I will help you tune into your mind and body to care for yourself in ways you never imagined!
If you are looking for relief from specific events in your life, impulses or worries, I utilize a specialized therapy called Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR). Studies have found this to be a tool that decreases the emotional charge of your memories and experiences that will help you get "unstuck."
Contact me today to have a conversation about what you are ready to change. Ask me why I am the Ground Therapist! http://groundedtherapist.com
