When we live through trauma of any kind, it leaves us feeling "stuck" in the past for years to come. We may have unpleasant thoughts, feelings, and body sensations any time we have an experience that reminds us of the past. These triggering events can cause us to feel as though we are unable to move forward in life. After spending years in traditional therapy, you may wonder if you will ever be able to find freedom from these disturbing memories.
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is an evidence/research based approach to treating trauma that unlocks these memories, and jump-starts your brain’s ability to process, digest, and assimilate these disturbing experiences. After successful completion of EMDR therapy, you will be able to remember those experiences without reliving them, free from their effects in the present.
