Feeling Stuck With Trauma?

Traumatic situations bring about intense emotions, physical sensations and images. Our brains can actually get overloaded with our past traumas and trying to deal with it all on your own can feel extremely difficult.

When traumatic memories are triggered, it can feel as if you are back in that moment again.

EMDR therapy has been recognized as an effective treatment approach for trauma-related issues and, eventually, broader applications in mental health therapy. Due to its unique approach and versatility, EMDR therapy can be effective where other therapies may have been less successful.

Is EMDR For Me?

EMDR therapy is often used to treat individuals dealing with various issues, including trauma and trauma-related conditions like PTSD. Other mental health difficulties such as anxiety disorders (phobias and social anxiety), grief, depression, and other difficult life experiences. EMDR therapy has also been demonstrated to be effective treating Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), and chronic pain management. EMDR therapy goals will be determined based on your unique needs and history.

EMDR therapy facilitates the brain’s ability to reprocess traumatic memories at their core and helps people break free from the cycle of reliving traumatic experiences. The bilateral stimulation (eye movements, tapping or sound) used in EMDR therapy engages the brain's natural healing processes, allowing you to address and process deeply your trauma. If you haven't found relief through traditional talk therapies or other approaches, EMDR therapy can help you find relief.

What Can EMDR Do For Me?

People who go through EMDR therapy can experience increased self-awareness by exploring and processing their emotions and traumatic memories. You can learn oping skills to manage distress and triggers effectively. You may also improve you interpersonal connections by transforming core beliefs about yourself that were developed during past traumas.

 

EMDR therapy aims to "reset" the brain by reducing the emotional intensity of distressing memories, allowing you to move forward with a healthier perspective. Ultimately, people often experience emotional healing, symptom relief, and greater control over their lives and well-being.

In the short term, we want to help you get immediate relief and a sense of empowerment. In the long term, we also focus on helping you set achievable goals and visualize a future where you are not held back by trauma. EMDR therapy is an excellent tool that allows us to offer effective and evidence-based treatment promoting healing and mental well-being.
