Using a variety of techniques and treatments to help individuals heal from past adversities and athletic traumas, Dr. Curdt uses EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) which is a profound treatment approach targeting past experiences, current triggers, and potential future challenges resulting in the alleviation of current symptoms. This approach has successful outcomes in PTSD, mental-health problems, anxiety, trauma, performance issues and traumatic life adversities. Additionally she utilized a cutting edge modality called Brainspotting to help turn dysregulation into regulation.
