EMDR and Trauma Therapy

In Denver, CO

Heal from the past and feel excited about the future

Are you feeling stuck?

  • You have tried talk therapy in the past and it didn't seem to help.
  • You have a difficult time expressing your thoughts and emotions out loud.
  • It's frustrating to be experiencing this internal chaos but you do not know how to calm it down.

EMDR is different from traditional talk therapy as it does not require you to articulate your experiences.

Talk therapy can be exhausting as you continue to talk about past events over and over, but EMDR is different and may be the right fit for you.

Getting Down to the Core

Eye movement de-sensitization reprocessing has become one of the most popular modalities for treating PTSD, anxiety, and depression due to it's efficiency and effectiveness.

When we experience traumatic or stressful experiences, our nervous system becomes overwhelmed. The brain becomes "stuck" in this cycle and is not able to process information effectively, which causes memories to be stored improperly.

Although the event is in the past, the body and brain still believes the event to be dangerous so the sympathetic nervous system continues to be activated. EMDR uses bilateral stimulation to help the brain reprocess through past events that contribute to high levels of distress.

After an EMDR treatment, you will notice a more regulated nervous and emotional system leading to a sense of calm.
