"Why am I here, and what are my lessons? The hard things in life, the things you really learn from, put you at a crossroads where you feel stuck and the pressure mounting. Everything is stressful and you feel powered down by the confusion, responsibilities and commitments. Something has got to give! Fortunately pain is an excellent teacher precisely because it gets our attention. I assure you the struggle you're experiencing now is guiding you. Struggle is a bonafide indication of real and important progress. If you're trying to gain traction, but don't remember how, I am here to help you move forward and heal from within. "

"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."
