I want to be your guide and supporter
I am a trained therapist who will guide you through a process that combines recall of memories with bilateral stimulation techniques. This bilateral stimulation, which can involve eye movements, taps, or auditory tones, activates both sides of your brain, facilitating the reprocessing of memories and fostering emotional integration. This is my fifth year working with clients who have seen amazing breakthroughs that they were not able to achieve in traditional talk therapy.
Is EMDR scientifically tested?
Absolutely! EMDR has been thoroughly studied by researchers and has consistently demonstrated its effectiveness as a therapeutic technique, especially for trauma-related issues.
Why is EMDR so effective?
EMDR is thought to be effective due to its ability to help reprocess distressing memories by incorporating eye movements or other forms of bilateral stimulation, which may facilitate the brain's natural healing processes.
Can anyone do EMDR?
Yes, research has shown that EMDR can be effective in addressing a wide range of presenting concerns when conducted by a trained therapist, although individual suitability should always be assessed before beginning the therapy.
How do you do EMDR virtually?
When conducting EMDR virtually, therapists use video conferencing tools to guide clients through the bilateral stimulation aspect, which can involve following a moving object on the screen or using alternate taps or sounds. The therapist also uses a cognitive approach involving discussing traumatic memories and associated thoughts, emotions, and beliefs. These two things together allow for the entire process to be done virtually.
Is EMDR safe to do on my own?
EMDR is not recommended to be done on your own, as it should be administered by a trained mental health professional to ensure safety and effectiveness.
