What is EMDR?

We carry around our stress and past experiences, emotionally and mentally as well as in our physical body. It can be hard to live your life and be present when your past continues to keep you stuck. My EMDR approach leans heavily on somatic (mind-body connections), attachment, and parts work/ego-state training, blended with other trauma-informed practices such as Mindfulness.

Therapy is a process…

EMDR has been proven to be an evidence-based treatment for trauma and many other mental health concerns such as anxiety, depression, self-esteem, etc. Your experiences and treatment will be personalized and tailored as such. We will discuss what this will look like for you, what coping skills we will learn to prepare, and what the “roadmap” will look like to reach our destination goals. 

I initially became EMDR trained in 2015 and am currently pursuing certification through EMDRIA with a certified and approved consultant,  Stacey Brown, LPC, at Chugach Counseling & Consulting.
