EMDR Therapy

If you experience any of the following challenges, EMDR therapy may be for you:

  • Anxiety, performance anxiety, phobias, and panic attacks.

  • Chronic illness, pain, and medical issues.

  • Dissociative disorders.

  • Eating disorders.

  • Grief and loss.

  • Mood disorders (depression and bipolar disorders).

  • PTSD, C-PTSD, and traumas.

  • Sexual assault/abuse.

  • Sleep disorders.

  • Stress related issues.

  • Substance abuse and addiction.

EMDR is a powerful and effective psychotherapy proven to help overcome or reduce symptoms related to traumatic and distressing life events.

EMDR is not the “typical” talk therapy as clients are not required to recount their experiences in order to process them. The processing happens internally, rather than during conversations, as the brain reprocesses disturbing memories with the assistance of EMDR, since our brains have the ability to recover from distressful memories and occurrences.

After completing EMDR therapy, the memories of particular issues or events that felt overwhelming are still there, but without causing discomfort or emotional distress.

I will guide you through your healing process by following the standard EMDR protocol and/or using EMDR with Ego State therapy to address any presenting issues you may have.
