Charlena Sears, Psy.D., LLC
IS PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THAT WE ARE
NOW OFFERING EMDR
"Often, when something traumatic happens, it seems to get locked in the nervous system with the original picture, sounds, thoughts, feelings, and so on. Since the experience is locked there, it continues to be triggered whenever a reminder comes up. This can be the basis for a lot of discomfort and sometimes a lot of negative emotions, such as fear and helplessness, that we can't seem to control. These are really the emotions connected with the old experience that are being triggered.
"EMDR is an eight phase treatment model that seems to unlock the nervous system and allow your brain to reprocess the hurtful experiences. Your brain heals you. In one part of the brain, disturbing events may be stored in an isolated memory network. This prevents learning from taking place. Events in life keep triggering us over and over again. In another part of the brain, in a separate network, is most of the information you need to resolve it. Trauma experiences prevent the two parts of the brain from linking up.
"Your own brain does the healing and you are the one in control."
