Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing
Anxiety, Phobia, PTSD
Have you experienced a childhood trauma that you can't get over?
Are you a war veteran and are struggling with trauma or memories that plague you?
Are you the victim of physical abuse, or sexual assault and can't find peace?
Have you been the victim of a terrorist attack?
Have you had a serious accident, such as a car wreck and are still experiencing emotional stress or anxiety
Have you experienced a natural disaster such as a fire, tornado, hurricane, flood, or earthquake and still feel frightened?
Do you have anxiety that you don't understand or can't identify?
Do you experience panic attacks?
If so, you may have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Anxiety, or Phobias that are disruptive to your life. Sometimes, traditional psychotherapy doesn&t always help with trauma. EMDR is a therapeutic protocol which was originally designed to help individuals suffering from trauma. It is a unique treatment that incorporates the best practices from a number of therapeutic modalities and adds its own unique touch, and EMDR has research data that supports its effectiveness in helping trauma victims.
Performance, Work and Sports
Do you feel your job performance is suffering and the more you worry about it, the worse it gets?
Do you notice that as long as your boss leaves you alone you do a great job, but as soon as you get noticed, you start to make mistakes?
Do you feel that you could be better at your favorites sport if only you didn't get self-conscious or nervous?
Although EMDR was originally used as a treatment for trauma, it has since been found to be effective for performance anxiety.
Not every psychotherapist is trained to work with EMDR.
I have completed both Part 1 and Part 2 of EMDR training and have my certificate of completion. In my practice, I have found EMDR to be an effective protocol for many of the issues that clients experience, even outside of the realm of Trauma and Performance.
