When life does not feel like it used to

If you have experienced a frightening or painful event or time of life and you’re discouraged about why you just can’t seem to get your old life back, you’re not the only one. Even something as simple as a car accident or as long ago as a difficult childhood can create long-lasting issues in body and mind. This can show up in many ways, such as increased pain, irritability, feeling upset in situations that never used to bother you, or feeling disconnected from life and loved ones.

The Mind-Body Connection

You may already know that stress and anxiety have an effect on how your body feels. When you are stressed, you may notice more pain. But, did you know that there is a direct biological connection between unresolved emotional issues and your physical health? Psychotherapy can help you resolve the pieces of your past that are keeping your body stuck in the cycle of stress and pain.

therapy with Compassion, Connection, and Insight

I know what it’s like to experience chronic pain, and that’s why I specialize in working with people with physical and emotional symptoms related to stress, anxiety, and physical and emotional trauma, including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). I have extensive experience and training in psychotherapy to help you address these issues, heal your mind, and get your life back. I use proven methods to help you feel better, including clinical hypnosis, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, Prolonged Exposure therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

I see clients both in-person in my office in St. Paul, Minnesota, and via telemedicine throughout the state of Minnesota. Give me a call at 651-998-8991 or send me an email at erinbd@erinbdlicsw.com to get started working together on feeling better.
