Restore Your Well-Being with EMDR Therapy

Trauma can profoundly impact your mental, emotional, and physical well-being, often leading to disorders such as depression, anxiety, and complex relational issues. When a traumatic experience overwhelms the brain’s normal memory processing, it becomes stuck, causing you to constantly relive the trauma with distressing images, sounds, emotions, and body sensations.

Our Approach

At In Session Psych, we understand the intricate ways trauma can affect your life. We partner with you to explore your traumatic memories and develop a tailored treatment plan that addresses your unique needs. Our primary approach for trauma treatment is Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR), a specialized technique designed to process and heal traumatic memories and distressing events.

How EMDR Works

EMDR works by desensitizing and reprocessing traumatic memories, integrating new, adaptive beliefs and emotions. This process helps restore the body’s natural healing capabilities and reduces the distress associated with traumatic triggers. Through bilateral stimulation, such as eye movements or tapping, EMDR accesses and reprocesses the stored trauma, transforming it from a stuck memory into a coherent narrative within your life story. EMDR may be worth a try to help you lessen the impact of trauma and distress. 

Guided Healing

Our experienced therapists guide you through the EMDR process, helping you connect with and heal from your traumatic experiences. This approach not only stabilizes the trauma response but also empowers you to regain a sense of safety and control over your life.

Comprehensive Trauma Treatment

In addition to EMDR, we incorporate other evidence-based therapies, such as Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) and mindfulness-based techniques, to support you in your journey towards healing and recovery. Our goal is to provide a comprehensive and compassionate approach to trauma treatment, ensuring that you feel supported and understood throughout your healing process.
