Because We Believe You Matter

Elena founded Very Good Counseling in 2021. As a therapist, she finds that specializing in EMDR therapy elevates her abilities to help individuals with trauma, PTSD, anxiety, and depression. Passionate about freeing people from years of negative thoughts and destructive habits, Elena is committed to helping individuals find liberation from their past, embracing their truest selves.

As we come to the end of Suicide Prevention Month, I would just like to say that this topic should not be confined to a singular month. It should be a constant ongoing conversation. Never hesitate to reach out to loved ones, check up on the ones you care about, give them the resources they need – no matter what month it is. The support of having a month dedicated to a topic of this stature is a great step in the right direction, however, more needs to be done. There should be greater access to resources, and we hope to be that place for anyone struggling.

One of the many ways we can assist in this process is by using EMDR. This form of therapy is defined as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. EMDR Therapy is an way of restoring, then healing traumatic memories an individual may have experienced, therefore, aiding in decreasing levels of depression. One of the main factors in suicidal idealization is symptoms concurrent with the aftermath of PTSD – anxiety & depression. EMDR has continually been proven to lessen the weight of these symptoms as shown in a recent study by Fereidouni et al. (2019), as well as Proudluck and Peris (2020). Through their research, it was shown that EMDR alleviated suicidal thoughts in participants. Not only that, but these participants stated that they “felt more able to manage their mental health symptoms and displayed higher self-efficacy following treatment”. Using resources like these, and others that we provide can completely alter one’s life.

You never know when it’s too late – be steadfast & relentless when helping someone. Do not cease to keep trying, reminding, and loving the people around you. Get the care you deserve, because you – just as everyone else – matters.
