Jordan Shafer, MS, LPC
I am available on a limited basis, every other week. Contact mail by email.
As an EMDR therapist, I help people explore and identify the thought patterns constantly running in the background that cause conflict and discomfort. These thoughts or “neural patterns,” which are formed over a lifetime, cause anxiety and stress (PTSD) and are disruptive regular living. As these emotional patterns are identified, we then use EMDR processing to resolve them. Sometimes this can be accomplished in a few sessions, but most often it takes longer.
I teach people the skill of tuning into their “felt-sense”, staying with their emotions, and learning to regulate their feelings and emotions from that place. This is a great way to live in the present moment, responding in “real-time” to what is currently happening as opposed to reacting to a contrived reality constructed in the mind and being played out in “real-life.”
For people who want to go deeper, I encourage them to buy, read and do, The Presence Process by Michael Brown. We can then use that as a way to guide our sessions and the work we do.
I help people see life from a different perspective. After all, you can’t use the thinking you used to get into your current discomfort, to get you out of it.
