Trauma and EMDR

2336841607Everything in your world has flipped upside down.

You tell yourself, “I should be able to handle this.” But you’re constantly triggered and struggling to keep it together.

You just want things to go back to the way they used to be. You desperately want to feel grounded, at peace again, and safe with others. Yet, the overwhelming anxiety and distress you experience feel so far away from the calm you once knew.

Now you’re avoiding situations and finding yourself constantly exhausted and unable to move forward. You feel disconnected from yourself, others, and the world – trapped inside your mind and body.

The way you feel are signs of trauma.

Relief from trauma is possible.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is one therapeutic strategy we use to treat trauma. This therapy repeatedly stimulates eye movements to activate opposite sides of the brain. This activation helps the brain reprocess the trapped memories in such a way that can allow it to return to normal functioning.

Sound weird? Well, it is, in a way. But EMDR has been extensively researched and proven effective in treating trauma and helping your brain process painful experiences.

If you want to learn more about this process, we are happy to speak with you and discuss if this would be a good option for you.

Your first step to healing is one call away. Call us at (949) 229-0871, and let’s get started.
