EMDR Therapy – Counselors and Therapists in Greenville, SC

What is Trauma?

Anyone can experience trauma. It can occur when you least expect it and consume every part of your life, leaving you depressed, confused, fearful, and numb. Trauma is a psychological or emotional response to an event – whether experienced personally or witnessed – that is disturbing or deeply depressing. It can be brought on by events, such as:

  • Serious Medical Illness
  • Physical / Sexual Assault
  • Natural Disasters
  • Car Accidents
  • War / Civil Unrest
  • Death of a Loved One

What is EMDR Therapy?

EMDR is a type of psychotherapy that is commonly used to treat PTSD and trauma. EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. It’s a clinical technique that uses the body’s natural ability to process memories by mimicking the eye movements that are experienced during REM sleep. Many people have found EMDR therapy to be an effective treatment option for PTSD or extreme trauma; however, it has been effective in treating many other issues, including:

  • Anxiety
  • Panic Attacks
  • Grief and Loss
  • Disturbing Memories
  • Phobias
  • Stress
  • Addictions
  • Abuse
  • Eating Disorders

her practices. With every session she gives me her full attention and listens to everything that I have to say. She continues to provide me with the tools and coping skills that I need to work through every day stressors no matter how big or small. She has provided me with a "game plan" and makes sure I do my homework to stay on track to reach my personal goals. Through working with her I have achieved a level of peace that I haven't experienced in a very long time. I would highly recommend her to anyone going through personal struggles or if you just need someone to talk to.
