About emdr in Norwalk ct:
EMDR Therapy (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a highly effective treatment protocol that is used to process targeted memories and emotions. These can include past traumatic events, fears, anxiety, nightmares, flashbacks, phobias, or other common complaints. EMDR can also be used to develop resources or behaviors to help with future life situations.
EMDR involves a structured and directed intervention between client and therapist in which the client identifies a target memory and is guided through the EMDR process in order to reduce, and often eliminate, unhelpful beliefs, emotions, and sensations that are troubling the client, and replace these with healthier thoughts and behaviors.
I offer a variety of options and setups for the EMDR process including use of a light bar, and I work collaboratively with clients to figure out the best mode of processing (visual, auditory, or tactile). The goal is to process unpleasant memories, sensations, and feelings while adapting the process to suit individual client needs and pacing.
EMDR has been shown to be greatly effective, and is a good alternative to talk therapy for certain clients. It is listed as an evidence-based practice by SAMHSA, the US Department of Veteran Affairs, and others.
personal note on working as an emdr therapist:
I offer EMDR in my office in Norwalk CT using light bar technology. EMDR is a highly effective and fast therapy that truly allows clients to reduce negative beliefs, habits, and experiences while integrating the past into their current lives. For clients who are good candidates to benefit from EMDR therapy, it is truly a powerful healing experience. I do, however, want to note that EMDR can lead to rapid change and integration of processed information, which is too sharp of an experience for some people. If you find that the EMDR process needs to be slowed down into manageable amounts or stopped all together in favor of other therapeutic modalities, that isn't a problem. I am quite aware that the experience can be very effective and powerful for some people, and "too much" for others. There are many ways to reach a goal in therapy, and EMDR is just one of many effective tools in my therapist's toolbox.
