Sometimes overwhelmingly bad things happen in life. Children are abused and bullied. People are the victims of sexual assault and other violent crimes.
In times of trauma, our brain’s inherent abilities to process and heal shut down. This means our worst experiences stay with us, and can feel like they’re still happening. For some people, that looks like the flashbacks and nightmares of PTSD. For others, it might look like substance abuse, eating disorders, or other forms of addiction that keep emotions at bay.
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is an evidence-based treatment technique demonstrated to effectively help people impacted by trauma. EMDR unlocks the brain’s natural healing abilities that were previously stuck.
We can never undo the pain of what happened, but together we can help you build a meaningful life despite it.
