While attending graduate school, I was privileged to work at the Pocatello Vet center. This experience was my first introduction to PTSD. As I entered my career in counseling, I realized what an important mental health issue all forms of trauma are and I took special training to effectively treat PTSD. Over the years, trauma has always been a significant factor in my work; houses burn down, traffic accidents happen, industrial catastrophes occur, domestic violence continues as well as forms of abuse to children. I’ve found the most significant modalities for treating trauma are EMDR, NLP and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
