EMDR Therapy in Denver CO
I use EMDR therapy in my Denver and Littleton offices to treat trauma, PTSD, anxiety issues, grief and many other issues my clients may have.
This therapy has proven to provide quicker relief than other previously applied counseling methods, which makes it become more and more popular.
What is EMDR?
EMDR, which is short for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, is a psychotherapy model that allows people to heal from the emotional distress and symptoms linked to an upsetting or traumatic life experience.
EMDR is recommended as an effective treatment for trauma by:
- The American Psychiatric Association,
- the World Health Organization (WHO)
- the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and Department of Defense
- the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and more.
Scientific research has established EMDR as effective for treating post-traumatic stress (PTSD).
EMDR-trained therapists have also reported success in the treatment of the following conditions:
- Chronic Pain
- Emotional outbursts
- Complicated grief
- Disturbing memories
- Negative behavioral patterns
- Body dysmorphic disorder
- Performance anxiety
- Panic attacks
- Low self-esteem
- Physical pain, tension, distress
How does EMDR work?
Generally, the brain has the power to heal itself after a psychological trauma. However, sometimes it gets blocked and this is when EMDR can help by removing this block and allowing healing to take place.
You can compare it to the healing of a scrape cut on your knee. Usually, it heals quickly unless something is stuck in the wound. Whenever the wound has been cleaned, recovery can continue rapidly which is what EMDR tries to achieve.
EMDR therapy normally expedites the progress of therapy through dissolving the destructive consequences of painful past experiences, and through creating powerful new positive beliefs that open the door to new energy, creativity, and peace of mind.
