( Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing )

Certified in EMDR Therapy

EMDR has been proven to be highly effective in treating a wide range of issues.

It is very common for clients who have experienced only limited results with traditional therapy to find that with  EMDR, emotional and creative issues are thoroughly resolved. The result is often a future free of entanglement  with old pain and limiting self-messages. Without those burdens, personal power becomes readily accessible.

EMDR was originally developed for working with both recent and past traumas. However it is also useful and effective to deal with anxiety, depression, anger related issues, loss/grief, relationship issues and much more.  I find it  especially exciting to see the clearing effects of EMDR as a psychotherapy for creative blocks and  procrastination. In fact, whenever the issue stems from limiting beliefs about yourself, EMDR therapy is worth exploring.

EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing.

Originally this name accurately reflected what happened in an EMDR therapy session. The therapist moved his/her  fingers  before the client's face and the client let their eyes follow back and forth. Today, in an EMDR  session, the therapist may use eye movements or alternating left/right sounds or tactile stimulation to support the  client in reprocessing emotional residue from distant or recent past events. The clearing that results might sound improbable precisely because the work is so simple and the sessions so straightforward, were it not for the research documenting the remarkable effectiveness of treatment with EMDR.

I continue to find how effective and efficient EMDR is for people. It allows them to find peace, relief as well as  assisting them with processing unresolved issues from their past.
