Are you depressed or highly anxious? Do you walk around with critical and negative beliefs about yourself? Do you hide in your apartment, hate your job, feel lonely?
Using traditional ‘talk therapy’ and EMDR, I can help you learn to trust your own feelings, find the source of your pain and begin to clear out the ‘chatter’ in your head.
EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) is a therapy technique that aids in the processing of trauma and distressing memories. EMDR helps create emotional distance from past events and strengthens present-day resilience and functioning.
