EMDR-Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy

EMDR therapy is an evidenced based practice that allows individuals to reprocess experiences or traumas that have occurred.  What this means, is that there are situations or incidents that have occurred that can become stuck or are not fully processed in our mind.  These incidents can often resurface and bring discomfort.  If you have lived through a difficult experience, where you notice yourself reliving or easily feeling as if you are there again, that is an unprocessed memory.  In other words, the fight, flight or freeze response is stuck on repeat in your body and mind.  With the use of EMDR, I will be able to help guide you through reprocessing of difficult or troubling events and aid you in seeing these events as being in the past and not harmful---changing the fight, flight and freeze feelings.  


EMDR is useful for several mental health needs, such as PTSD, anxiety, depression and grief/loss. If you are interested in learning more, please contact me for more information.
