Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy to heal painful and traumatic events that are keeping you stuck.
A way to break free from the hold painful and traumatic experiences have on your life...
Whether you have had a one-time traumatic event, you've experienced repetitive traumas, or you have painful memories that are haunting you, you can have emotional freedom from these experiences. It’s time to heal and live your life to its fullest.
Traumatic events are stored differently in our brains as a way of protecting us. Based on our previous experiences, the brain can become hyper-reactive, searching for situations that feel unsafe and going to great lengths to protect us from signs of similar danger. But the brain isn’t always a good judge, and you may find you are reacting to things more strongly than is warranted for the situation. These memories often become stuck in our psyche, creating involuntary symptoms in our body and can trigger us to respond and interact with others in ways that don't always align with our desires or intentions. Additionally, as a result of these experiences, you may harbor negative feelings about yourself or others that keep you trapped and prevent you from engaging meaningfully in relationships.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a powerful therapy that utilizes the natural inclination of our mind and body to work toward healing to help process painful and traumatic memories and experiences so that they can be stored more adaptively in the brain and stop interfering with one’s life. Dual attention stimulus (tapping, eye movements, etc.) allows a client to remain grounded while the mind and body are stimulated to process the event at the root level. It can be a transformative means of healing PTSD, recurrent childhood traumas, or overcoming other painful experiences so that you can experience emotional freedom and live a happier, fuller life.

Although EMDR is often touted as a miracle cure, it isn’t right for everyone and depending on your circumstances and the extent of the trauma, it can take time to process your experiences. There is no way to guarantee the length of time needed for treatment. Generally, single-event traumas can be treated fairly quickly. I’d love to set up a consultation to discuss whether EMDR is right for you.
