Do flashbacks, severe anxiety, or panic attacks interrupt your daily life?

These are common symptoms for those grappling with PTSD symptoms, where past traumas continue to exert a profound influence on the present. Traditional therapy methods can sometimes fall short in addressing the deep-rooted, visceral nature of these experiences.

Imagine a therapy that targets the core of trauma, facilitating healing at a speed and depth that talking alone can't reach. EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a rigorously studied, highly effective method tailored for individuals dealing with PTSD and trauma-related symptoms. It helps by allowing the brain to process and integrate traumatic memories, reducing their impact significantly.

Steps we may take include:

  • Creating a Safe Space: Forming a secure, nurturing setting that you feel comfortable in

  • History and Assessment: Understanding your unique experiences and how they've shaped your current state.

  • Targeting Trauma: Identifying specific traumatic memories to address with EMDR therapy.

  • Processing: Using bilateral stimulation, we'll work to desensitize the emotional charge of traumatic memories and reprocess them in a healthier way.

  • Reevaluation: Continuously assessing progress and adjusting our approach as needed to ensure comprehensive healing.

Ultimately, what will change? My goal is to help you experience a decrease in PTSD symptoms, including flashbacks and anxiety. We want to loosen the grip of the past, allowing you to live more fully in the present. EMDR therapy can offer a newfound sense of freedom and peace, opening up possibilities for a future unburdened by trauma.

Freedom from the pain of the past is possible. With EMDR therapy, we can navigate the path to healing together, transforming trauma into a source of strength.
I provide individual, virtual psychotherapy in Ontario and I offer a free 20 minute consultation. Feel free to book a consultation here if you'd like to explore working together.
