EMDR for Trauma

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a therapy method for dealing with difficult memories or traumas.

As you focus on a specific memory, I’ll guide you through a series of eye movements. EMDR helps you reframe how that memory is stored in your brain, stripping away its emotional weight. It facilitates new adaptive learning for long-lasting effects.

Essentially, we’re taking distressing or uncomfortable memories that might be holding you back and making them less disruptive to your life. EMDR helps reduce stress and bolster a state of calm so you can move through life with more ease.

Find the root. Create change.

In our sessions, we go beyond symptom relief. I’m dedicated to solving the root problems so you can live with less anxiety and fear.

With gentle methods, I’ll help you release the stress and burden of trauma and live with more peace and freedom.
