“Trauma is hell on earth.
Trauma resolved is a gift from the gods.”
-Peter A. Levine
Many emotional problems and disorders result from unprocessed trauma memories that are stored in the brain. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy assists the brain to access and reprocess these traumatic memories and sets in motion the natural healing processes.
EMDR therapy has been used with children, adolescents and adults with a wide variety of emotional and psychological problems including PTSD, anxiety, phobias, depression, attachment disorders and negative self-beliefs that contribute to low self-esteem.
Since it’s development in the late 80s by Francine Shapiro, EMDR has been recognized as an effective treatment for PTSD and other disturbing experiences by organizations such as the American Psychiatric Association, the American Psychological Association and the Department of Defense. By using EMDR, people experience benefits of psychotherapy that once took years to achieve.
“Luna is one of those people who brings with her a sense of calm, understanding, confidence, and professionalism that is rare to see all in one person. It takes only moments to recognize these qualities and appreciate how that translates to her care for all aspects of the work that she does.“
