Asheville, NC – Tara Chandler is an experienced counselor focused on Somatic and EMDR treatment interventions that help individuals deal with emotional, psychological, and physical trauma and co-owner of Appalachian Counseling and Psychological Services.

For over ten years, Tara has been helping clients heal from their past wounds and pain through a specific type of somatic therapy, EMDR which stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. This therapy uses bilateral stimulation by moving the eyes in a directed way, to blur the emotions connected to any horrible experiences we have gone through. It can also help with anxiety disorders, depression, and even panic attacks.

Aside from EMDR, another therapy tool she uses somatic therapy, examines the body’s relationship to the mind and actually helps us get connected to our bodies. Because when we undergo trauma, our bodies hold on to memories of that trauma and we need to release them in order to fully recover. Through techniques like breathing exercises, dancing, and meditation we begin to genuinely feel better, lighter, with a better sense of purpose and renewed confidence.

Tara’s work is also tremendously focused on working with women going through any life transition, from divorce or relationship breakup, dealing with the loss of a loved one, becoming empty nesters, career changes, menopause, motivating us to achieve greatness and not get stuck in our limiting beliefs.

“If you are struggling with trauma and other challenges and issues you don’t have to suffer in silence and pain. There is no shame in reaching out for help and the benefits will be incredible. You can move from inner conflict to harmony and I am here to help you get there.”
