In a recent episode of Kindred with Aubrey Baptista, we were honored to host Haley Morris, a clinical rehabilitation and mental health counselor, specializing in anxiety, trauma, and EMDR therapy. Haley has a unique approach to therapy, focusing on Internal Family Systems (IFS) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapies. The conversation was rich and informative, shedding light on these therapeutic modalities and their transformative potential.
IFS is a type of psychotherapy that helps individuals understand and embrace their emotions, fostering healing connections and enhancing parent-child relationships. Haley's approach to IFS is characterized by her deep commitment to cultivating healing connections and her expertise in the method. She beautifully articulated how IFS can help clients soften towards difficult emotions and gain a greater understanding of why these emotions arise.
On the other hand, EMDR is a form of therapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress resulting from traumatic life experiences. It's been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma. Haley masterfully integrates EMDR into her practice, demonstrating its transformative power.
