Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is my favorite trauma processing modality. Our bodies and brains know best how to heal themselves and as your therapist it is my job to support you in your healing.
When trauma happens, a person’s central nervous system helps the body survive by going into flight, fight, or freeze. If healing resources are not in place when the trauma occurs, the memories, emotions, and somatic sensations get stuck in the body, causing a person to be triggered over and over, constantly living in a survival state. No one knows exactly how EMDR works neurobiologically, but EMDRIA has found that it is similar to how we process events in REM sleep. EMDR has helped millions of people process old trauma, so a person no longer lives in the sensations, emotions, or memories their traumatic experience binds them in.
I have helped hundreds of people of all ages gently move through disturbing material to ultimately reach peace and rest in their lives and bodies.
Currently, I am taking EMDR patients with car accident trauma or other physical injury.
