Experience the Healing Power of EMDR Therapy

Have you tried traditional talk therapy methods only to find they barely scratch the surface of your problems? This might be because while talking can be helpful, a significant portion of our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors originate at an unconscious level.

EMDR Therapy is a unique therapy that helps us process traumatic memories and negative beliefs we have about ourselves. It can help you unlock and heal underlying issues that might be influencing your behavior and emotions.

EMDR Therapy often facilitates deeper healing than talk therapy can on its own.

What Problems Can EMDR Help Me With?

EMDR started as a treatment for PTSD and trauma. But it has evolved over the years – as has our understanding of trauma. Today we understand that trauma is part of life, and it hijacks our thoughts and feelings. Any experience that has lasting, negative effects can be treated with EMDR 

Common Applications:

  • Trauma, Complex trauma, and PTSD

  • Childhood trauma, such as abuse and/or neglect

  • Mood disorders, such as depression and bipolar disorder

  • Substance abuse and addiction

  • Personality disorders, like BPD

  • Anxiety, panic attacks, and social phobia (social anxiety)

  • Difficult life transitions

  • Chronic patterns of dysfunctional thinking, feeling, and behaving

  • Eating disorders

  • Grief and loss

  • Attachment issues

  • Problems with self-esteem

What is EMDR Therapy?

EMDR is a therapeutic approach that helps alleviate distress associated with traumatic memories and negative beliefs about oneself. It utilizes directed eye movements to help you reprocess challenging experiences and diminish the impact of traumatic events.

EMDR can help you reprocess these memories, feelings, and beliefs to address the root of your problem–not just scratch the surface.

Here’s a brief look at how it works:

  • Eye Movements: You’ll follow certain hand gestures or light patterns with your eyes, guided by an experienced therapist. These movements help stimulate the brain and processing of memories and troubling beliefs.
  • Desensitization: Over time, as you process these memories and beliefs, their emotional charge decreases. They might not disappear, but they’ll lose their sting.
