EMDR Therapy in Alamo, CA


Painful experiences can affect how we think and feel about ourselves, others, and the world around us. For instance, relationship loss or adverse childhood circumstances can invoke beliefs such as "I’m worthless, It's all my fault, I'm not good enough". Being harassed, enduring chronic illness, or navigating family dysfunction may lead to thoughts like "I'm unsafe, 'I'm incapable, I can't handle it." EMDR helps link the difficult memory with more adaptive or helpful thoughts. This can change how we feel about the memory and what we perceive about it.

EMDR treatment follows a structured 8-phase protocol with a bilateral stimulation device such as the sensory tappers that we use: BLS Device

During your EMDR sessions, we focus on memories that hold lingering anxiety or grief, incorporating BLS to activate and engage both hemispheres of the brain simultaneously. This assists the brain in organizing and making sense of distressing experiences rather than feel stuck in the emotions of them. Doing so helps to reprocess the memory so that it's no longer as recurring, intense, or overwhelming. 

Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) is the leading treatment for rapid recovery from traumatic experiences and persistent memories. It is an incredibly effective treatment for anxiety arising from losses, health problems, life stressors or pressures, infidelity, rejection or abandonment insecurities, abuse, interpersonal conflicts, phobias, natural disasters, accidents, and traumatic moments.
