Healing Therapy Through EMDR
Eye Movement Reprocessing and Desensitization (EMDR) is a highly effective and successful therapy used in treating many types of trauma. The goal of EMDR is to process disturbing memories, reduce their lingering effects and enable clients to develop more adaptive coping mechanisms. EMDR has been shown to be a rapid and effective treatment for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and it can also be used to treat a host of other issues, including: depression, anxiety, grief, substance abuse and other addictions, phobias, self-limiting beliefs and low self-esteem.
If you have experienced major or minor traumas, EMDR may be a good treatment option. EMDR can offer relief from disturbing memories and other symptoms associated with trauma, increase your self-esteem and support positive changes in behavior. As an EMDR practitioner, I provide a safe and supportive environment for you to clarify the issues overwhelming your life.
