EMDR Therapy Sacramento
EMDR for Trauma Experienced in Adult or Childhood Relationships
I am so grateful to be able to offer EMDR therapy to give relief and healing to clients with trauma and anxiety.
Why? Because EMDR can offer long-lasting relief from emotional and psychological pain.
If you have experienced something painful in your past, you may feel stuck, anxious, depressed, frustrated or hopeless.
EMDR Therapy helps to reprocess the past and free you from your pain in the present so you can have the life and relationships you want.
What’s EMDR? Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy is an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma. EMDR is a set of standardized protocols that incorporates elements from many different treatment approaches. To date, EMDR therapy has helped millions of people of all ages relieve many types of psychological stress. (Source: emdria.org)
EMDR can free people from traumatic experiences which they have been carrying with them for as long as decades.
Our brains are wired to help us heal and adapt in a healthy way. When we experience one-time or chronic trauma, our brains can become overwhelmed and stuck. Our bodies and minds re-experience our trauma each time we detect a reminder. This is a painful way to live!
EMDR is a natural way to get your brain unstuck, freeing you from the past and allowing you to live in and fully experience the present. EMDR uses eye movements, which activate the brain similarly to what happens during REM sleep. This allows the brain to reorganize your experience of the memory in an adaptive way.
EMDR Therapy can effectively heal and improve the lives of people who have experienced:
- Physical or emotional trauma in relationships;
- Physical or sexual assault;
- Abuse or neglect by caregivers or other adults in childhood;
- Traumatic pregnancy or birth;
- Chronic discrimination;
- Chronic illness;
- Traumatic loss;
- A life threatening event;
- PTSD, anxiety and depression related to experiences of trauma.
You deserve freedom from your past to live the life you want!
Hi, I’m Megan. I’m an EMDR Therapist in Sacramento and I specialize in using EMDR to support individuals with relational trauma.
If you have been hurt by someone you loved, experienced physical or emotional distress in childhood, or lost someone you love, I may be a good fit for you.
Relational trauma can keep us stuck by impacting our ability to trust others and ourselves. We may also carry shame, guilt, embarrassment, or self-judgment related to the trauma.
This is a painful way to live and it doesn’t need to be this way.
