If you are experiencing intense symptoms and disproportionate reactions that are interferring in your life, you may greatly benefit from specialized therapy. Many problems people experience are rooted in a broad range of traumatic experiences. We can develop persistent symptoms from negative experiences that do not respond well to cognitive work, or talk therapy. The essence of these problems are stored in the body, emotional brain, and sensory systems including distressing images or sounds. Therapies that are focused on processing, not talking, are highly effective. One of these therapies that can provide rapid, lasting relief, is Accelerated Resolution Therapy, or ART. With ART, you can erase and replace distressing memories - the images, emotions, and body sensations, that leave you vulnerable to being triggered.
