Welcome to Invigorate Life Counseling's Seasonal News for Autumn 2019! 

In this edition, we will cover our approach to EMDR, visiting the MAMFT Conference, Theressa's new Wayzata office and open house, ILC's book club, and more! 

All About EMDR
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, or EMDR, is a psychotherapy technique that can be successful in helping people who struggle with trauma, anxiety, panic, disturbing memories, post-traumatic stress and many other emotional problems. EMDR can often relieve stress, bring about new insights, and allow us to feel better about ourselves. EMDR is considered a breakthrough therapy because it can bring quick and lasting relief for most types of emotional distress. Because ILC is a trauma-informed clinic, more than half of our therapists are trained in EMDR.

Accepting New Clients 
Theressa is now accepting clients at our new Wayzata office, and is hosting an open house for clinicians and collaborators on Tuesday, November 5th from 2 to 5 p.m.! Theressa Durenberger, MA, LMFT, is a talented and skillful therapist who helps her clients navigate through difficult circumstances, relationships, emotions, and life transitions. Theressa specializes in working with both couples and individuals and is trauma-informed and EMDR trained. Learn more about Theressa here
Attachment + Trauma Training 
At the annual Minnesota Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (MAMFT) conference this September, several of us spent the day with Diane Poole Heller, Ph. D., an expert on attachment and trauma. Her presentation "Clinical Interventions to Help Heal Attachment Wounds and Embrace Secure Relationships" provided knowledge on how trauma can affect the attachment process for many within relationships. The presentation was very illuminating for our trauma-informed clinic!

The Value of Taking Time
After nine years of leading Invigorate, owners Katie and Melanie attended a much deserved yoga and hiking retreat this month hosted by The Fire Within Yoga studio in Utah! They spent time on their mats, reflected on the past year, and meditated on future goals and dreams for the clinic. Hiking The Narrows in Zion National Park and soaking up the sun and beautiful landscapes was rejuvenating and time well spent for our heart-led leaders! Learn more here.  
What We Are Reading
This Fall, the ILC book club is reading Burnout: The Secret to Unlocking the Stress Cycle by Emily Nagoski, Ph.D., and Amelia Nagoski, DMA. The first sentence of Burnout states; 'This is a book for any woman who has felt overwhelmed and exhausted by everything she had to do, and yet still worried she was not doing “enough.”’ Join us in reading this groundbreaking book, and let us know your thoughts about the stress cycle!
