EMDR and Trauma Treatment

Have you been exposed to a traumatic event that runs over and over in your mind?

Are you anxious, having panic attacks or excessive fear and feelings of helplessness that make it hard to connect with other people?

Do you experience flashbacks or recurring nightmares that make it difficult to sleep?

When something traumatic happens, the human mind can trap disturbing memories so that they become locked or frozen in the mind.  The trauma creates memories that exist in a timeless state so that that it can be difficult to distinguish between the horror of the past and what is happening in the present.  Flashbacks can intrude in the present and the anxiety of the past is carried into wariness of the future.  Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, EMDR, is an evidenced-based, comprehensive, psychotherapy technique that has been successful in bringing quick and lasting relief for traumatic, emotional distress.

You don't have to live in emotional pain forever.  There is hope.  I provide a safe, confidential and supportive atmosphere combining EMDR and talk therapy to assist you in working through the trauma so that you will have greater freedom in creating a happier, less stressful and more fulfilling life for yourself.

If this treatment sounds as if it could be beneficial for you, please contact me today for a free 15-minute phone consultation to see if I am the Marriage and Family Therapist Registered Intern for you.
