Traumatic events can happen from everyday experiences. This could range from a car accident to spilled milk. Your brain creates mental and emotional roadblocks causing a myriad of problems.
Trauma can be incredibly difficult to talk about through traditional therapy. Take back your memories with Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). With EMDR, you won’t have to discuss in detail the trauma you experienced. EMDR allows your brain to heal from trauma instead of focusing on your thoughts, emotions, and behavior. EMDR allows you to take back those memories, empowering you.
You deserve mental wellness, with nothing holding you back. EMDR can help you achieve this.
This is done through a guided EMDR session with our Licenced Clinical Social Worker, Dee Wright. She may ask you to recall a specific memory. She’ll then guide you through several sets of bilateral stimulation through eye movements with a light bar, audio, or vibrations.
EMDR therapy is backed by the American Psychiatric Association, with many scientific studies supporting its effectiveness.
People who experience any of the following could be a candidate for EMDR Therapy: Anxiety and Panic Attacks, Depression, Eating Disorders, Grief and loss, Phobias, Performance anxiety, Personality disorders, PTSD and other trauma and stress-related issues, Sexual assault, Substance abuse and addictions, Violence and abuse.
How EMDR Works
When we experience a stressful event, our natural fight, flight, or freeze instincts kick in. Sometimes, those upsetting thoughts, images, and emotions stay with us. EMDR therapy helps the brain process these memories so you can resume the healing process.
