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

Trauma Symptoms

Many symptoms are associated with trauma. If you’ve experienced a trauma, you may find that you’ve experienced several of these symptoms or just one. These symptoms can be triggered without notice by a sight, sound, smell, or feeling. They include, but are not limited to:

  • Nightmares
  • Flashbacks
  • Anger
  • Fear
  • Guilt
  • Feelings of Sadness
  • Feelings of Despair

Thankful for Emily Gilliam!

ion. I thought I was handling it well until one day had a massive panic attack. I did my research and reached out to her immediately. She met with me the next day and helped my put a plan into place for recovery. The first time I met her, I knew I could trust her and she tailored my therapy and sessions to what I needed at the time and at each stage of progress. There were times I digressed and she helped me get back on track and we celebrated my small wins and progress together. I would recommend her to any friend or family member. I know personally, taking the first step to get help is an important one. I can confidently say she was a great first step for me and I know she's fantastic at helping others too.

Emily Gilliam

I don’t write many reviews but this one is worth it. I found myself in a difficult and dark spot. A time in ...Read more

my life where in my mind, I had nowhere to turn. I reached out and I had never done this before. It was extremely difficult to say to myself, “I need someone to talk to.” Not knowing who or where that someone would be. And so, I was introduced to Emily Gilliam. A stranger, a therapist, a counselor. I don’t talk as it is, but Emily made it easy as I spilled my circumstances, actions, thoughts, and beliefs to Emily in a comfortable and secure setting. And for over a year, Emily and I were able to get through my darkness, my tough time, my thoughts, my situation. I would not be in my better place right now if it were not for Emily or people like Emily that are in her profession. Emily and people like her are needed and I’m am very happy that our paths crossed. And if you find yourself in a dark spot, a dark place in life, and you have the opportunity for your path to cross into Emily’s, you would be in a safe, secure, professional, space. I do thank her every day, even though she may not know it, or may not know how important she is and was to me and how her help, advice, thoughts, options, and opinions that she gave me got me through my darkness. So, if this review reaches one person and that one person has the opportunity and good fortune to meet and talk to Emily, I would be happy for that one person, as that person would meet an excellent stranger, therapist, counselor, and maybe a friend. Thanks again Emily, I wish nothing but the best, CB.

is exceptionally skilled at what she does, yet makes each session feel effortless. I could feel she truly cared for me. She taught me practical coping mechanisms while also helping me discover who I was and why I should love every part of myself. I highly recommend Emily Gilliam.
