Our founder is an EMDR therapist who has seen the power that healing from past wounds can have on increasing quality of life and relationships.
EMDR has been used since 1989 for PTSD. However, EMDR can also be helpful for anxiety, depression, and perinatal trauma. Individual treatment using EMDR can also help improve relationships and enable you to be more emotionally in-control in situations that have historically been triggering.
At first, you’ll just get to know your therapist. They will ask you some questions about your life and why you’ve chosen to come to therapy. However, you get to decide how you answer and what you share. There may even be some joking around or talking about tv shows. At your first session your therapist will describe the EMDR process in detail, and you can ask any questions you may have, then decide if you think this form of therapy would be a good fit. Many find it relieving that if and when you decide to process past trauma, with EMDR you are able to do so without sharing details with your therapist.
