EMDR Therapy in San Francisco & Across The Bay Area
EMDR therapy is like regular therapy in that you see a therapist who talks with you about the situations in your life that led you to seek out counseling. You may explore traumatic memories or other distressing events that trigger you or cause you to “react” as you would when the initial disturbing event took place.
EMDR treatment involves bilateral stimulation which engages your whole brain in your healing process and works organically with how your brain naturally processes information. People report it’s both relaxing and effective.
The important thing to know is you don’t have to have experienced a radical event in your life to actually feel traumatized by something. If you feel that an experience or event in your life has caused emotional distress, impacted your nervous system, or is preventing you from living as your “full” or “real” self, that is more than enough to explore EMDR therapy as a healing solution fro. your mental health.
What can an EMDR therapy help me overcome?
As we said above, there are many life experiences that lead to an event being experienced as a “trauma.” Traumatic experiences leave a mark and are often “re-experienced” over time in the form of flashbacks, traumatic memories, nightmares, dissociation, avoidance and emotional intensity and sensitivity. Our therapists are trained in EMDR and use it as a healing technique aims to help relieve you of these “re-experiencing” events in your life by reducing their frequency, intensity and impact on your daily life.
