When a trauma keeps resurfacing…

It’s often hard getting to sleep at night. Thoughts of family, friends, finances, children, and work keep you up.

Then… there are those troubling thoughts about the past. Sometimes, the thoughts and emotions are so disturbing that they keep you from exercising, socializing, or just leaving the house.

You’ve tried talk therapy, and it worked somewhat, but the nagging thoughts persist.

It’s called Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and it’s very different from traditional talk therapy.

EMDR uses eye movements and tapping to stimulate both sides of your brain. When done as you recall traumatic memories or themes, it “reprocesses” those memories, reducing the impact and distress they cause you. In time, you’ll be desensitized to distressing memories because they lose their charge.

We’ll do this with you in a safe, controlled environment, so you’ll have all the support you need as you confront traumatic or painful experiences from the past.

EMDR is used to treat trauma and PTSD, but…

It’s also an effective treatment for anxiety, grief, phobias, and sexual dysfunction.

That’s because EMDR can target negative beliefs or perceptions you might have about yourself.

During EMDR sessions, those negative beliefs or perceptions are targeted and replaced with more positive, realistic thoughts.

It’s easy to see how reprocessing harmful, inaccurate beliefs about yourself, the world, or the future can reduce anxiety, depression, and other emotional difficulties.

You’re probably here because you’ve been struggling to “move on” from the past for some time.

EMDR is a relatively fast, direct way of reprocessing the past, allowing you to heal wounds without reliving them through years of talk therapy.

We would love to talk more and see if EMDR is a good fit for you.
