Emdr

EMDR provides a way for people to free themselves from destructive memories, and it seems to work, even in cases where years of conventional therapy have failed.

Eye-Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) is a remarkably effective therapy approach used to overcome the emotionally painful effects of trauma and a wide range of other emotional conditions. It has been shown to be twice as effective in HALF the amount of time of standard traditional psychotherapy treatments alone. EMDR is a combination of traditional talk therapy and bilateral stimulation following an eight-phase model.

EMDR is known to be effective with survivors of trauma, however, it can be used for many other challenges you may be struggling with. Personally, I have personal therapy experience with an EMDR therapist, which resulted in an effective and long lasting end result. Excited by that experience, I went on to become EMDR trained in order to help my clients overcome disturbing and upsetting events in their lives. Many have experienced relief from symptoms and have noticed dramatic improvements in the quality of their lives. As mentioned, EMDR has been used successfully to help people overcome other challenges as well, such as:

  • Life transitions
  • Stress
  • Performance anxiety
  • Panic attacks
  • Grief
  • Fear of flying
  • Addictions
  • Disturbing memories
  • Sexual and/or physical abuse
  • Phobias
  • Depression
  • Anger Management

Who May EMDR Benefit?
Anyone who has experienced any situations in the bullet point list above will benefit from EMDR. I also specialize in providing EMDR to first responders and medical personnel such as: 

  • Law Enforcement
  • Paramedics
  • Doctors & other healthcare professionals
  • Lifeguards
  • Fire Fighters
  • Military Personnel
