Break Free With EMDR Therapy

Break free with EMDR therapy!
(Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing)

What’s been holding you back in your life?  Are there ways that you continually self-sabotage your own success?  Each time you vow that you will do it different this time.  You promise yourself that you will achieve a different lifestyle….but then, you find yourself in your old pattern again. 

It can get discouraging and disheartening.  You may find you feel angry at yourself.  Dwelling there only compounds the problem.  As you focus on your shortcomings, you can fall into a painful cycle of berating yourself, and you actually increase the probability of repeating that same cycle.  Truly, it’s time for a change!

Are you ready to get ‘unstuck”?  EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapy can be a game changer for you!  Become one of the thousands who have found profound and dramatic healing and help with EMDR therapy. 

What used to take years in talk therapy, can be accomplished in a fraction of the time with EMDR!   While EMDR is best known for it’s amazing outcome in treating trauma, did you know it is also helpful for so much more? It’s great for building self esteem, self confidence, working through grief or relationship hurts - to name a few. 

What is EMDR Therapy?

EMDR is an evidence based psychotherapy that is known for being fast and effective. It is an amazing type of therapy that helps your brain to process much more quickly than it otherwise would.   It was discovered in 1987 by Francine Shapiro.  It’s been researched and continues to be ever evolving as more is learned about it. 

It has some unique characteristics in that it utilizes ‘bilateral stimulation’ while the therapist guides the client as to what to think and notice.  Originally, the ‘bilateral stimulation’ referred exclusively to movement of the eyes from left to right.  Over the years since EMDR was first discovered, there have been alternative ways created to provide the bilateral stimulation.  In my office, I use one of two options - tappers that you can hold in your hands that alternate buzzes;  or the option of a head set with sounds alternating ear to ear. 

I’ve been using EMDR therapy in my counseling work since 2003.  I’ve witnessed and heard countless success stories from clients I’ve worked with.  Many have expressed wishing they had sought it out sooner.
