Dr. O'Keefe provides an emotionally safe space to process traumatic experiences. Trauma can lead to a range of mental health symptoms, including intrusive memories, feeling emotionally numb, depression, anxiety, guilt or shame.
Trauma can also affect people in other ways. Sometimes individuals who have experienced trauma express difficulty letting people in, trusting others, or trusting themselves. This can impact one's relationships with friends, family members, and romantic partners.
Dr. O'Keefe assists clients in identifying healthy ways to cope with the distress they are experiencing, and helps instill or increase a sense of self love and peace in their lives. The purpose of this work is not to forget the trauma - the purpose is to decrease the emotional pain associated with the traumatic experience.
