7 Step Treatment Model: Recovery from Toxic "Love"
Therapy for Women in Toxic Relationships
Felice Block developed the 7 Step Treatment Model: Recovery from Toxic "Love" to help women recognize the depth and breath of their trauma and then heal with her support using therapeutic tools and interventions.
Her clients have faced a range of toxic behaviors including emotional abuse, verbal abuse, and physical abuse. These types of abusive experiences can bring about lasting psychological symptoms. By guiding her clients through each step of Relationship Recovery, Felice helps them find relief and renewal.
Treats Clients & Trains Professionals
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an extensively researched, effective psychotherapy method proven to help people recover from trauma and other distressing life experiences, including PTSD, anxiety, depression, and panic disorders. Clients come to Felice Block for the relief she provides with EMDR therapy, and professionals come to her for the extensive training required to perform it.
“Ten years ago I dove into a love relationship that brought me to my personal rock bottom. Two years ago, I took steps to free myself from a difficult situation. One year ago, I knew I had made a lot of progress but felt stuck. Ten months ago, I reluctantly began a therapeutic relationship. Today, thanks to the healing power of EMDR, I am no longer stuck. Instead, I face the world with openness and a calm confidence.”
Butterfly Hug Delivers EMDR Results
Since the onset of COVID-19, Felice has offered therapy virtually including a proven EMDR method. Clients enjoy the benefits of EMDR through shoulder tapping or a technique called the ”butterfly hug” which works when individuals wrap their arms around themselves.
When clients rate their level of disturbance for each EMDR session, the results are equivalent to those reported in past face-to-face sessions. EMDR therapists Ignacio (Nacho) Jarero and his wife, Lucina (Lucy) Artigas, developed the "butterfly hug" when treating survivors of Hurricane Pauline in 1998, long before the COVID-19 pandemic. Since then, it has became standard practice for clinicians working with survivors of man-made and natural catastrophes
During virtual therapy sessions, Felice uses a platform which allows for security and privacy and complies with HIPAA regulations.
