The gift of therapy is an opportunity to feel different to feel better than usual. Maybe to gain a felt sense of joy, peace and contentment. What does that mean? Many may have tried “talk therapy”. Although “talking” through life experiences can be helpful, it is often discovered that there is a felt sense to the issue that words cannot get through alone. Often resulting in not feeling better. The basis of EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) is that it incorporates identifying where the feeling is physically located and more importantly, somatically felt. How the body is responding to the actual memory. The body remembers the events that occur in our lives. And over time, and during varying stages of life, body memories can resurface. This results in distress, sometimes, significant distress resulting in an impact on daily life.
EMDR is a structured therapy that supports and assist in encouraging a brief focus on the trauma memory while simultaneously experiencing bilateral stimulation (typically eye movements), which associates with a reduction in the vividness and emotional impact associated with the trauma memories, resulting in desensitization. EMDR set in a safe space can result in an increase of peace and contentment, resulting in an enhancement in your quality of life.
With 25 years of my career serving others, I have a strong commitment to providing a safe space that is accepting, compassionate, empathetic, non-judgmental and non-shaming. Alongside other Modalities that can be utilized, in addition to EMDR, I have the capability of supporting and understand the deeper level of your story. Often based on your current stage in life as well as your emotional development throughout your lifespan.
