What is EMDR?

EMDR is Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, which is a therapy process that can be very beneficial to individuals who are struggling with trauma, anxiety, depression, and other issues.

As the name suggests, it works to desensitize and reprocess difficult memories/experiences. The eye movement part is the incorporation of bilateral stimulation (clients eyes moving side-to-side).

What are the risks and benefits of doing therapy?

The benefits of doing therapy far outweigh the risks. But some people have experienced a temporary increase in emotional reactivity and resurgence of painful memories. This is part of the process that we will work through together.

And the benefits, the list is extensive… confidence, emotional acuity, increase in relationship satisfaction, increased motivation… just to name a few.

How do I know if you are the right therapist for me?
Sometimes, it’s just a vibe; you will know it when you feel it. And sometimes, you won’t know for sure until after we’ve met a few times. But meeting with the right therapist is an important part of the therapeutic process, and I welcome the opportunity to explore our compatibility.
How do you work with clients?
