213261079Negativity invades your life – daily.

“I am unworthy.” “I should have known better.” “I’ll never be good enough.” “My body has betrayed me.” “I am powerless.” “I am a failure.” “I’m worthless.”

These thoughts are only a few examples of negative beliefs that disrupt the daily functioning of many people because of personal trauma.

Whether you have been a vet in a war, a first responder, in a bad relationship, or embarrassed at a family event, trauma can have long-lasting effects and is transcendent across populations and cultures.

Trauma can leave individuals with emotionally crippling beliefs about themselves, causing impairment in relationships, difficulty in job advancement, and ultimately can cause a dysfunctional and unhappy life.

EMDR can help you heal from trauma.

That traumatic event can block the brain’s ability to process situations naturally. That blockage creates constant negativity as you wait for the next traumatic event. Emotional thoughts and feelings can invade your mind constantly, making it difficult to move forward.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an intervention that helps clients briefly focus on traumatic memories while using bilateral stimulation to reduce extreme emotions associated with the traumatic events.

This stimulation ultimately helps an individual reprocess that traumatic event and eliminate the negativity associated with that event.

When negative thoughts start impacting your emotions and feelings daily, receiving EMDR from a professional therapist can allow you to put that event behind you.

1585004458Based on experience, we know EMDR works.

Clients participating in EMDR treatment with us will identify traumatic memories, negative beliefs, and distressing emotions associated with those memories. Clients will then identify positive ideas about themselves to replace the negative thoughts.

Using forms of bilateral stimulation such as eye movement, music, and tapping helps clients reprocess these memories, allowing the brain to heal and resolve its flight, fight, and freeze response to the event.

Our clients who receive EMDR get faster results using less language and details – making working through intense past and present trauma easier. Clients who complete EMDR describe their experience as transformative.

Contact us today if you are ready to overcome those negative thoughts, transform, and put the past in the past.
