"When we experience psychological and emotional stress, our brains and bodies have automatic coping mechanisms to help us survive, such as being flooded with adrenaline to help us fight or flee or shutting down to protect us from unimaginable stress. Sometimes, however, the things we experience can overwhelm our minds, bodies, and emotions, and we essentially get stuck re-experiencing our trauma. EMDR therapy allows us to intentionally engage with trauma and learn how our bodies and minds are attempting to cope. It facilitates the reduction of symptoms, helps us reconnect to our emotions, and allows us to feel more grounded."
