EMDR can help you with:

Whether or not you've experienced a specific trauma, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is an integrative treatment approach to help you transform stuck patterns and beliefs. It's like being freed from the puppet strings that control your life, even though you may not even be aware they are there.

Memories have particular thoughts, emotions, and body sensations associated with them that can drive our current behaviors. EMDR helps reprocess the memories to become more adaptive so your past experiences become sources of wisdom.

The process of EMDR does not require you to re-experience the trauma or causes of your beliefs, rather, we look through a window to access the memory.

Most clients experience a significant decrease in triggers (things that create distress) after in person EMDR sessions or intensives. You may or may not know the exact origin of what gets in your way. That is the beauty of EMDR.
