Individual Counseling

Focus on Treating Childhood Trauma

Are you struggling with issues related to trauma, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, or major life changes? Sometimes, we need some help from a certified professional to help cope with many of life’s challenges. Most people have traumatic events in their past they look back upon and would like to forget.

I’m Maggie Roney, a Licensed Professional Counselor with advanced training in EMDR for children and adolescents located in Wylie, Texas. My areas of expertise include the treatment of trauma victims and adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse and I would love to help you on your journey toward healing and self-discovery. Taking the first step towards recovery can often be the most difficult part of the process. For most individuals, there is a deep sense of relief once they eventually do take that step.

I serve those who have experienced trauma, including:

  • Children
  • Adolescents
  • Adults Who Experienced Trauma as a Child
  • First Responders

Trauma is the result of an event or events that are so powerful that the person experiencing them feels a threat to their physical or psychological well-being.  Trauma can be caused by a single incident or by repetitive experiences such as ongoing abuse or neglect.  Trauma is defined by the impact the event has on the individual's daily living experience, not by the event itself.

While there are many ways to treat trauma, the therapy I use most often is EMDR. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. Repeated studies show that by using EMDR therapy people can experience the benefits of psychotherapy that once took years to make a difference.
