Therapy to Overcome Emotional Difficulties

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a psychotherapy treatment that is effective for resolving emotional difficulties caused by disturbing or frightening life experiences. When an upsetting, scary, or painful experience happens, sometimes the memory of the experience stays stuck or frozen in the mind and body. The experience may return in a distressing and intrusive way, through being triggered by similar sensations which may cause one to overreact to the present situation or avoid everything associated with the upsetting experience.

Trauma Treatment

Most experts agree that the best way to get unstuck and become free from the symptoms is through the exposure to the traumatic experience. At Briones Counseling Services, Michele is trained in EMDR therapy and will work with you in confronting the memories or traumatic events until they are no longer disturbing.

Return to a Normal Life

EMDR helps resolve the troubling thoughts and feelings related to the distressing memories so you can return to your everyday life without being triggered by the disturbance. EMDR can help to strengthen feelings of confidence, calmness, and mastery.
