“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.” – Brené Brown
Individual therapy is a joint process between a therapist and a person in therapy. Common goals of therapy can be to inspire change or improve quality of life. People may seek therapy for help with issues that are hard to face alone. Therapy can help people overcome obstacles to their well-being. It can increase positive feelings, such as compassion and self-esteem. People in therapy can learn skills for handling difficult situations, making healthy decisions, and reaching goals. Many find they enjoy the therapeutic journey of becoming more self-aware. Some people even go to ongoing therapy for self-growth.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (better known as “EMDR”) is a revolutionary mental health treatment developed by psychologist Dr. Francine Shapiro in the 1990s.
By stimulating the natural action of memory processing through eye movement, EMDR helps people to access and “re-process” their traumatic memories and deep core beliefs.
Backed by extensive scientific research, EMDR is recognized worldwide as effective treatment for emotional disorders. It has been used by millions of people to address PTSD, Depression, Anxiety, Grief, Addictions, and other conditions.
