I specialize in providing EMDR trauma therapy to adults struggling with PTSD, specifically combat trauma, racial trauma, sexual trauma and/or spiritual trauma. EMDR is effective in addressing any mood concerns such as anxiety and depression with the goal of decreasing and eliminating the distress.
It is an evidence base intervention used only by qualified and trained clinicians to help individuals decrease stressful emotions caused by a traumatic or overwhelming experience. It is an eight-phase treatment that identifies and addresses experiences that have overwhelmed the brain’s natural coping capacity, and have thereby generated traumatic symptoms and/or harmful coping strategies.
Clients report immediate relief even after the 1st session of EMDR. It is something worth experiencing because it is truly life changing.
How It Works
The therapist leads a client in a series of lateral eye movements while the client simultaneously focuses on various aspects of a disturbing memory. During this procedure, clients tend to “process” the memory in a way that leads to a peaceful resolution. This often results in increased insight regarding both previously disturbing events and long held negative thoughts about the self. (www.EMDRhap.org)
EMDR continues to impact the lives of many people today because it ushers in the brain’s natural ability to heal itself. Once this happens, everything else falls into place.
