Have you experienced a major trauma? Do you have flashbacks or find yourself stuck re-living a memory over and over? Have you tried therapy in the past but find yourself stuck, unable to move past a certain point? This treatment may be suitable for you! 

MFI specializes in trauma therapy, recognizing the profound and complex effects trauma can have on individuals' lives, communities and families. Through trauma-informed care, we create a safe and supportive environment where clients can process and integrate their traumatic memories, emotions, and beliefs and create thriving, fulfilling lives. 

 

Our focus is to bring healing, resilience, and hope to individuals affected by trauma through evidence-based therapies, including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and trauma-focused approaches. EMDR, an empirically validated and powerful therapy, is a cornerstone of our approach. We harness the therapeutic potential of EMDR to facilitate the reprocessing of traumatic memories, alleviating distress and enabling clients to develop adaptive coping mechanisms.

In conjunction with EMDR, our therapists draw upon various trauma-focused modalities, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness practices, and somatic experiencing, tailoring treatment plans to meet each client's unique needs and experiences. We are dedicated to empowering clients to overcome the impact of traumatic experiences, fostering their emotional well-being and promoting post-traumatic growth.
