Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR)
Helping those who suffer from traumatic or significant negative events to overcome the power of their past
Our counselors have counseled many people who have experienced a traumatic event or significant negative event that resulted in having difficulty coping, depression, hopelessness, despair, and emotionally feeling stuck to move forward.
We often don’t realize just how much our past affects our present. The brain stores troubling memories, including all the scents, sounds, emotions and body sensations. If traumatic memories are not fully processed, they get stored too close to the emotional center of the brain, negatively affecting our present lives. Unfortunately, Post- Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSD) affects more than just veterans.
The good news is that the brain is able to heal itself through a specialized therapy called EMDR which stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. EMDR shifts traumatic memories to a part of the brain where they no longer have the power to cause problems in daily life. Once free from painful thoughts and feelings related to our past, we are then able to envision a better future and are empowered to live out a healthier and a more balanced life.
