Description of Practice
Self-Description: EMDR allows therapy to move with warp speed. People improve at a quicker pace that with traditional talk therapy. With EMDR I am a guide and a facilitator. The healing happens within the person, not from the therapist's insights. While I work from a relational model, EMDR is so client centered that I am less central to the process. I find EMDR often has a playful quality that leads to joy and peacefulness after memories are processed. My EMDR clients realize that the heavy burden of long-held negative beliefs can be let go, leaving them free to move on in their lives more easily.
