We will continue to offer ART (accelerated resolution therapy) training to therapists in our local school districts. This is a free service to students.
We are creating a brand that supports mental health therapy and pushing this out into our community by collaborating with other nonprofits, organizations and businesses that support youth mental health.
We are working with school districts to offer the mental health resources they need to help their student population. This could include; more therapists, calming rooms, parent nights, individual student support and ART Training.
This experience empowers teens to LYFT those around them with the intent that every teen feels seen, heard, valued, and loved by offering assemblies, school challenges and parent nights.
ART (Accelerated Resolution Therapy) works directly to reprogram the way in which distressing memories are stored in the brain so that they no longer trigger such strong physical and emotional reactions. Because this is a accelerated therapy it is effective in the school setting because of the limited time and resources there are to help every child.
Eye Movement Desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) is an effective psychotherapy method proven to help people recover from trauma and other distressing life experiences, including PTSD, anxiety, depression, and panic disorders.
Ketamine is a drug that can help to facilitate the creation of new neural pathways that can help develop resiliency and protect against the return of depression.
Sometimes oral antidepressants are not affective in the treatment of severe depression, speak to your Doctor about whether ketamine treatments are right for you.
Breathwork refers to any type of breathing exercises or techniques. People often perform them to improve mental, physical, and spiritual well-being. During breathwork you intentionally change your breathing pattern.
Some individuals will try more than one before discovering a breathing exercise that works for them. Talking with an experienced therapist can help you determine which type of breathwork could help you with anxiety or trauma.
