Service Description

EMDR wields powerful results for clients. It can be likened to dreaming while fully awake in order to consciously put trauma and emotional disturbances in their rightful place (the past) for deep-rooted healing. What is Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Treatment? Using the detailed protocols and procedures laid out by Francine Shapiro Ph.D. (2001), you will be effectively guided to activate your natural healing processes by utilizing the power of your own bilateral stimulation. It has been discovered that when you focus on a distressing memory and then deliberately concentrate on alternatively stimulating the left and right sides of your body (also known as bilateral stimulation), the distress is reduced significantly long-term in most cases. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) works theoretically based on how the primitive nervous system is wired to keep only one thing at a time in mind when switching attention (contrary to mainstream belief that people are actually able to multi-task). Because your mind will be switching between the distressing memory and the relaxing present, your mind will be more able to discriminate the memory as a memory and not a current event. The bilateral stimulation in EMDR can be experienced by you personally in-office (Wisconsin) or virtually (by web camera). This is achieved via rhythmic visual displays (usually watching my fingers move left and right or diagonally), rhythmic non-intrusive touches (self-administered if your session is virtual), and rhythmic sounds played in each ear (headphones required). How Can Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Help Me? Many clients report that they experience a relaxing effect, more flow in their thought process (less 'stuck' on the presenting problem), a serene sense of decreased worry and anxiety, and the ability to distance themselves from being caught in a whirlwind of feelings/thoughts from the past. Because Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) heals from the lower, more primitive parts of your brain up, you may be able to expect more rapid changes than an approach involving cognitive introspective. EMDR treatment can be a powerful service of change for you in dealing with distressing thoughts, feelings, and traumas much better and ultimately discover release from captivating and oftentimes embarrassing outbursts and/or behaviors.
