A cutting edge of trauma healing and recovery. It is a flexible, non pharmaceutical technique utilizing visual fields of processing while accessing deep parts of the brain that holds memory, emotions, fear and anxiety. Clients are simultaneously tapping into deep mental and emotional dysregulations while reprocessing memory.
Clients are encouraged to have a physiological felt sense of their emotional experiences as they begin a journey of deep personal exploration in the privacy of Danielle Nokes’ office setting. As Danielle Nokes guides and supports the personal journey of each client during their session, clients will feel safe and supported during each processing phase. Each treatment session concludes with grounding and resourcing exercises to promote the healing process. Sessions vary according to the clients treatment plan developed at the time of intake, monitored and evaluated for optimal outcomes during the entire treatment phase and include an out of office follow up at least once per week.
Sports Psychology & Analysis
Sports Psychology & Consulting is a psychological process that prepares an athlete for optimizing mental and emotional conditioning. Most athletes are aware of the mental and emotional demands of competition, most do not understand the intricate operations of the brain resulting in leveraging peak performance. Mental competitive preparedness is more than positive affirmations, it is intense mental and emotional training for guaranteed outcomes.
We specialize in deep therapeutic athletic focus, rapid cognitive processing, competitive psychoanalysis, performance anxiety, champion driven internalization, attentional focus, and resiliency. We provide an individualized approach to each athletes needs, program design and execution.
PTSD is a condition that develops as a result of an individual experiencing a real or perceived event that produces unexplainable symptoms such as anger, mood swings, hypervigilance, inability to focus, panic attacks and social anxiety.
As an officer in the United States Army, I have worked with hundreds of US Service Members who suffered with PTSD. I also have extensive experience working with individuals who have experienced natural disasters, physical abuse, sexual abuse and attempted suicide survivors.
My approach is to treat each clients experience as unique and meaningful. Together we develop treatment plan goals and objectives, monitoring for progress or adjustments so that the client can focus on healing.
An eating disorder is an illness that is characterized by irregular eating habits. Eating disorders develop as a result of several underlying factors such as trauma, depression, anxiety, and family dysfunction. The underlying issues develop into an unhealthy relationship with food.
Eating disorders can become debilitating life threatening illnesses that can cause neurological changes in the brain and dysfunctional thoughts and behavior.
Addressing eating disorders in therapy consist of psychotherapeutic approaches that target underlying trauma, cognitive, behavioral and emotional disruptions. I have several years of experience working with individuals suffering with eating disorders. My approach is to carefully listen to each client’s life experience and craft a three phase treatment plan.
Depression is a mental health condition that can cause one to experience hopelessness, isolation, loss of interest in hobbies, difficulty falling and staying asleep, anger, and difficulty functioning in relationships causing an impairment in daily functioning. Other indicators can include inability to get out of bed for word, chronic tardiness to school or work, poor work or school performance, and difficulty making decisions. More chronic and persistent depression can lead to thoughts of suicide and life crisis.
Individuals who suffer from anxiety experience excessive worry, fear feelings of impending doom, irritability, poor concentration, racing and/or unwanted thoughts.
Both disorders can be treated with various therapeutic methods, and treatments plans are tailored according to the client’s level of motivation and depending on the severity of depression or anxiety. Examples of treatment are Brainspotting, mindfulness, motivation interviewing, cognitive behavioral, talk therapy, yoga, Tai Chai, meditation, exercise, and proper nutrition.
I provide individual and confidential assessment and treatment implementation, and can incorporate exercise and fitness regiments into treatment plans.
