  • Why EMDR?
  • What is EMDR?

Trauma lives in the body, which can often be traced back to a disturbing event. Perhaps it made you feel unsafe or unloved, leading to overwhelming emotions.

These emotions can manifest not only in your feelings, but in a number of physical and mental health problems such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, chronic pain, persistent migraines, fibromyalgia, or irritable bowel syndrome. Anxiety and depression can feel like intense distress or pain in the body.

You might feel like your body doesn’t belong to you. You may disassociate from your life and loved ones, or feel like the world around you isn’t real.

You may be less interested in activities you used to enjoy. Everyday tasks seem insurmountable. You might have feelings of hopelessness, worthlessness, or guilt. You may feel constantly “on edge,” and you may experience uncomfortable physical symptoms such as a racing heart, or the desire to isolate. EMDR provides swift relief so you can reclaim your life. There is hope, and you are not alone.

EMDR is ideal for:
Depression
Anxiety
Panic Disorders
Migraines
Phobias
Death
Divorce
Relationship Issues
Abuse
Bullying
Catastrophic Events
Domestic Violence

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from what is hurting them. It shifts how your body perceives, and holds on to trauma. EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing. It is a radically effective and life-changing psychotherapy treatment. EMDR addresses memories, the mind, and the physical body. EMDR retrains the brain and reduces negative emotions.

“In 1990 psychologist Francine Shapiro developed a new type of psychotherapy known as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing or EMDR. EMDR therapy is an effective treatment option for people suffering from anxiety, panic, PTSD, or trauma. It’s a way to get past your past.

According to the EMDR Research Foundation, EMDR has been clinically validated by more than 30 randomized, controlled studies (the gold standard for clinical studies).

EMDR is an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma. EMDR therapy includes a set of standardized protocols that incorporate elements from many different treatment approaches and has relieved psychological trauma for millions of people of all ages”

    “EMDR with Leslie has single-handedly changed me for the better. I am less anxious, certainly less depressed, and I am able to recall traumatic memories with positive neutrality. It is nothing short of remarkable. I feel like I am healing when nothing else has helped. After years of therapy and medication, EMDR transformed me!”

    I could not recommended Leslie enough. She has been there through every step of my healing process and I would not be where I am today without her. She truly cares about her patients and understanding the root causes of their trauma. She is someone I trust unconditionally and I am so grateful to have found her when I did. I was in chronic pain for over 6 months with no relief and Leslie helped to reduce that pain significantly, helping to improve my quality of life and give me my life back.
