Our licensed EMDR therapist in Rome, GA provides a safe, supportive place for you to heal and recover from your traumatic event or emotional distress.
When you feel “stuck” in talk therapy, an alternative approach like EMDR therapy can help you process the painful, traumatic events or emotional distress so you can continue to heal.
EMDR therapy is an evidence-based, effective approach that helps people process traumas, emotional distress, and difficult life events.
Instead of using a talking-based approach, EMDR uses your brain’s natural healing tendencies.
Sometimes, our emotional, physical, and thought reactions to a distressing event or trauma aren’t processed by our brain as other events are. This can happen when the body and mind become overwhelmed and react with a ‘flight or freeze’ response in the moment.
As a result, we may not be able to fully access the painful memory in talk therapy, even though the emotions, thoughts, and sensations related to the event are negatively impacting us.
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapy helps you activate or access the thoughts, emotions, and body sensations associated with the painful memory or trauma.
This scientifically proven therapeutic approach lets you tap into the past event that’s wearing on you without having to talk about it.
This noninvasive therapy uses bilateral stimulation to help your brain fully process the distressing memory.
During therapy, you’re both present in the moment while processing the past event. The bilateral stimulation technique simulates your body’s natural way of consolidating or processing information.
This allows you to re-process the experience so you can heal and move beyond the negative effects of the memory.
EMDR therapy can help with trauma or other emotional distress. It can be used in addition to a talking-based therapy or on its own.
For example, EMDR therapy may be used for…
• Historical or relational traumas
• One-time event traumas like car accidents, natural disasters, life-threatening events, and more
• Emotional distress such as depression, anxiety, shame, fear, phobias
• Domestic violence
• Childhood trauma
• Social anxiety
• And more…
