I am Certified in EMDR therapy, (Eye Movement Desensitization and
Reprocessing), proven to be the most effective psychotheraputic
treatment for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). EMDR seems
to have direct, beneficial, and measurable effects on the way that the
brain processes information, so that following a successful EMDR
session, the client feels significantly less distress when recalling
events which once were upsetting.
Your brain and body are innately
designed to heal: you’re just waiting to do it. EMDR Therapy can provide
Here’s why EMDR
brings hope: within the traumas and emotionally disturbing events of
your past lies the precise understanding you need to process
those events and heal yourself.
Distress, dysfunction and pathology
occur because of how traumatic events are stored in the brain. When the
disturbing events of your past remain “stuck” or “unprocessed” in the
primitive, limbic area of the brain, that can manifest as self-defeating
behaviors, distorted and disempowering self-beliefs, unpleasant emotions
and moods, recurring thoughts and images, and uncomfortable and painful
Processing a disturbing memory doesn’t just mean talking it through. EMDR is far
more than talk therapy. It’s a biologically-based
psychotherapy model – highly researched and documented. By activating
primitive parts of the brain where shaming, fearful,
frozen-in-time-memories are stored, EMDR non-verbally links to neuronal
networks in more developed parts of the brain – fostering communication
with mature, positive, and healthy life experiences and understanding.
And fortunately, the human brain generally welcomes the opportunity to
rework those shaming, sad, and frightening memories into useful and
meaningful information for your life. So those memories, when they are
metabolized and usefully integrated, actually become the basis of mental
health and a new sense of yourself.
