Reprocess in a Healthy Way
Experience Freedom & Healing
Ignoring the Past Comes at a Cost
It’s easy to think that the past is in the past and it has no bearing on you today. But that’s just not how our brains work.
When we experience trauma (large or small), the normal function of our brain is interrupted and thrown into a mode of “Fight, Flight, or Freeze.” This interruption breaks the normal flow of how our experiences are processed and resolved, and many untrue beliefs about ourselves and others are formed without our knowledge.
Freedom from the Past is Possible
EMDR is a Proven Therapy for Issues Including:
- Panic Attacks
- Complicated Grief
- Traumatic Birth & Labor
- Trauma from Invasive Medical Procedures
- Automobile Accidents (Experienced or witnessed)
- Dissociative Disorders
- Disturbing Memories
- Pain Disorders
- Performance Anxiety
- Sexual Abuse
- Physical Abuse
- Body Dysmorphic Disorders
- Personality Disorders
EMDR can even be an effective therapy if you don’t experience any of the symptoms in the list above. It can help identify hidden traumas that are affecting how you react to current situations and give you the tools to manage them in a healthier way.
How Does EMDR Work?
EMDR therapy uses a technique called “bilateral stimulation” to repeatedly activate opposite sides of the brain. This therapy often involves repeated eye movements that mimic REM (rapid eye movement) sleep. This is important because it’s the period of sleep when the mind processes the recent events in your life.
EMDR seems to help the brain reprocess trapped memories in such a way that normal flow of how information is processed in your mind is able to resume. Therapists often use EMDR to help clients uncover and process beliefs that developed as the result of relational traumas or childhood abuse and/or neglect.
