EMDR

I am a certified EMDR therapist. Live more fully in the present. Helping you resolve the impact of past traumas.

Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) is a form of therapy that helps you target deeper emotions and memories. It has been used to treat Post-Traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety and panic attacks, and phobias.​

How does it work?

Normally, an EMDR treatment sessions lasts 80 minutes, however shorter sessions e.g. 50 or 60 minutes, are certainly effective. This treatment uses a patient’s own rapid eye movement (REM) to reduce the power of past traumatic events and memories.​

My style of EMDR utilizes somatic experiences (mind, body, spirit, and emotions), and mindfulness. We start by building goals and desires to assess the best path forward. Gradually, through the EMDR process thoughts shift to more pleasant, beneficial, and often empowering ones.

Who does it help?​

I have found the most success with EMDR in patients that have experienced: 

  • Anxiety disorder
    • Performance anxiety
    • Phobias 
  • Single event traumas
  • Addictions
  • Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (often childhood trauma e.g. abuse, neglect)
