Trapped, scared, feeling like a hostage
Buried memories keep bubbling to the surface, showing up on your mind’s doorstep – without an invitation.
Your mind and body are frozen by tension and stress as you try to escape the unbearable thoughts and feelings.
You build formidable walls to protect yourself, but they only leave you feeling isolated and alone.
Surviving isn’t living
Perhaps you’ve fallen so deeply into survival mode that you have no idea how to live an authentic and fulfilling life.
Buried under worry, doubt, and fear, you try to pretend things are ok – but in reality, you don’t know who you really are anymore.
A worthwhile life happens on the other side of fear, and EMDR can help you get there.
What in the world is EMDR?
EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. That’s a mouthful – what is it?
EMDR is a unique and powerful therapy that has helped thousands of people overcome traumatic experiences. Let’s break it down for you in more concrete terms.
During an EMDR session, both sides of your brain receive stimulation very similar to what you experience during REM sleep.
Your brain inherently knows how to effectively process an event. Once the bilateral stimulation occurs repeatedly through the EMDR sessions, your pain and suffering will eventually be alleviated around that particular event – and you will feel welcome relief.
Through EMDR, your brain learns the important lessons from your memories, let’s the pain go, and allows you to see the trauma through a new lens.
Augh! Do I have to relive my trauma?
The great news about EMDR is that you don’t have to go into detail about your disturbing memories!
EMDR involves my asking you a variety of questions (during brain stimulation) about what happened to you.
You have the option of answering these questions out loud – or just to yourself. As long as you can tell me whether you’re feeling better emotionally during the process, we are good to go.
Break free from trauma. Embrace a brighter future.
