  • EMDR

In my practice I work with people with a variety of challenges. One of these challenges is learning to cope with and heal from the effects of trauma. Some common symptoms of trauma are:

  • Shock, denial, or disbelief
  • Anger, irritability, mood swings
  • Guilt, shame, self-blame
  • Feeling sad or hopeless
  • Confusion, difficulty concentrating
  • Anxiety and fear
  • Withdrawing from others
  • Feeling disconnected or numb
  • Insomnia or nightmares
  • Being startled easily
  • Racing heartbeat
  • Aches and pains
  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Edginess and agitation
  • Muscle tension

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is so beneficial in many ways. Treatment is usually short term and you don’t have to do a lot of talking. Many studies support the efficacy of EMDR and I want to continue to get the word out about this great tool. You don’t have to live with the effects of trauma – there is help!
