Keeping the past... in the past.
It's very possible to be free from the pains of trauma, let me show you how
How I can help:
As if going through something traumatic wasn't difficult enough, the lasting effects of invasive thoughts, emotions, and even medical illnesses can easily become exhausting. You may have had something throw your life off course or you might have experiences from your past that you are unaware of how they are affecting you today. Either way, I am here to help.
I will provide you with effective ways to cope with life today as well as heal the original cause to give you lasting results.
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) is a method I use that utilizes the natural healing process of your brain to alleviate the emotional pains that are stuck and attached to memories from your past (whether you're aware of those memories or not). Originally used to treat PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), it is highly productive and is a different experience then typical talk therapy with results seen significantly quicker.
Who I am:
Well, I'm glad you asked! My name is Brittani Antunes, I am a Licensed Professional Counselor located in the Ahwatukee area of Phoenix who is passionate about empowering others to experience life free from the seemingly invisible force of trauma.
I specialize in alleviating the effects that follow you from painful memories and experiences. If you don't think you necessarily have a 'trauma', you can think of me as someone who can help with the things that trouble you.
My goal is that when you spend time in my office you will feel a sense of safety, comfort, and freedom from judgment.

We all have a story.
We added to that story yesterday and we will continue to add to it today. It is no secret that our past impacts who we become. We are a sum of our experiences- those we cherish and also those that we perhaps wish didn’t carry so much weight- they all mold how we think and view the world. It turns out that it is very possible to lessen or even eliminate the impact of certain events from our past, allowing us to live with much more comfort and freedom. Whether you know what experiences hold you back or not, if you’re feeling shame, guilt, anger, or insecurity, it is possible to reduce those feelings and live a more fulfilling life.
I am on a mission to spread that relief to as many people as possible and that’s why I have created Next Chapter Counseling.
If you are ready, or are thinking about being ready, then you've already taken a step toward creating the next chapter of your life and I'd love to be a part of your team for the journey.
What do you want the title of your next chapter to be?
