Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy to heal painful and traumatic events that are disrupting your life and relationships.
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 take back control of your life.
Experiences that threaten our sense of safety and connection are stored differently in the brain as a means of protection. 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. Based on previous experiences, the safety response system of our brain unconsciously searches for situations that mirror previous dangers and activate a protective response. But this part of 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. 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 the mind and to work toward healing to process painful and traumatic experiences so that they can be stored more adaptively in the brain and stop interfering with your 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 painful experiences so that you can experience emotional freedom and live a happier, fuller life.

Although EMDR is considered a short therapy, but there is no way to guarantee the length of time needed for treatment. EMDR isn’t right for everyone and depending on your circumstances and the extent of the trauma, it can take time to process your experiences. I’d love to set up a consultation to discuss whether EMDR is right for you.
