Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
Looking for something different than traditional talk therapy? EMDR can provide rapid and seemingly miraculous results, often in a relatively short time.
EMDR is an evidence-based treatment (researched and proven) that I frequently use with my clients. It is an effective compliment to talk therapy, or can be the center of our work together.
Originally developed for major traumatic experiences (like car accidents, sexual abuse, or deaths), EMDR has been shown to be effective on a wide range of issues, including but not limited to:
- Body image
- Attachment (think healthy relationships with yourself and others)
- Low Self-esteem
EMDR is also effective for performance enhancement. By processing stuck places, you remove blocks to your success. You increase your ability to “picture it,” and feel more confident moving forward.
I trained in EMDR because I have used EMDR myself. It has changed my life. My triggering has greatly decreased. My persistent negative thought patterns have all but disappeared. I have a much greater capacity for love and compassion.
Many of my clients have also seen profound results. Through processing their trauma, clients realize they are whole and unbroken. They feel more authentically themselves than they had in years. Clients plagued by anxiety find a sense of peace and ease in their bodies. And clients successfully release negative thought patterns that they had been unsuccessfully trying to shift for years.
The end result? Happiness.
