I am trained in EMDR.
My primary focus is to assist emergency responders, dispatchers, and other public safety personnel, military vets, and their families who have experienced a critical incident. Critical incidents can be traumatic to the brain and lead to repetitive images, sounds, and smells that won't go away. Common symptoms are increased startle response, sleep disturbance, nightmares, flashbacks, anxiety, depression and anger outbursts. Sometimes the brain needs help in healing.

Do you have difficulty maintaining focus and a piece of mind? Are you someone who appears to have it all together, but still find yourself experiencing unpredictable emotions, bouts of anxiety and depression that have strained your relationships? Do you have an internal fear that you will be exposed as broken? Trauma serves as a filter, a lens through which a person views the world. Everything is shaded differently. It can have you feeling like “What’s wrong with me?” and “I’ll never feel at home with myself” or “Why does life have to be this hard?”. So now you’re ready to make a change. You’re ready to feel relief.

EMDR Therapists

Who is EMDR for?

EMDR was initially developed as a treatment for individuals with Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), for whom memories of a deeply distressing experience can be inadvertently triggered by random everyday events. The procedure has since been applied in the treatment of many other conditions. For example, it is used by some therapists to treat anxiety disorders including panic and phobias, depression, dissociative disorders, eating disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorders, and some personality disorders. It is suitable for adolescents and adults.

Why do people need EMDR?

People need EMDR as a way to manage distressing memories that in some way hamper the ability to function in the present. The procedure is believed to target the way memories are stored in the brain. Evidence indicates that past disturbing experiences cause ongoing distress because they were not adequately processed, and when such memories are triggered in the present, they are accompanied by all the emotions, thoughts, and physical sensations as the initial experience.

What problems does EMDR treat?

First and foremost, EMDR is intended as a treatment for PTSD, to defuse distressing memories that intrude on and impair everyday functioning. It is also often used to help those who are subject to panic attacks, phobias, and other forms of anxiety. In addition, EMDR has been used to treat individuals with depression, eating disorders, and personality disorders.

What happens in EMDR therapy?

First the therapist takes an individual’s history, and then the therapist and client decide which distressing experience(s) will be the target(s) of the exercise, delivered via a side-to-side visual stimulus requiring lateral eye movements. The client will be asked to activate thoughts, feelings, and any body sensations related to the troubling experience. The eye movements are said to reduce the emotional charge of the memory, so that the experience can then be safely discussed with the therapist and digested, minimizing its ability to trigger anxiety.
