EMDR Therapy Los Angeles

As a Psychotherapist and Sex Therapist based in Los Angeles, my team and I specialize in providing EMDR Therapy to address a range of traumatic events. This includes abuse, molestation, single incident traumas, ongoing trauma, and sexual trauma. Developed by Dr. Francine Shapiro, EMDR, stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. It is an evidence-based treatment model with well documented benefits. Bilateral stimulation, such as eye movements, tapping on the knees, or alternating vibrating pulsers allows for deeper processing. Through Bilateral stimulation, the brain is able to better integrate painful experiences.

EMDR therapy can help in many ways

EMDR Therapy is ideal for individuals who have experienced limited progress or reached a plateau in traditional talk therapy. Ultimately, EMDR Therapy offers a powerful alternative for those seeking profound breakthroughs in their healing journey.

Our staff trained with the EMDR Institute for the general application of EMDR as well as with Dr Laurell Parnell to use EMDR Therapy with adults abused as children.

EMDR therapy for trauma

Applying EMDR Therapy to traumatic childhood experiences, abuse, and traumatic events can lead to great change. It is an effective tool in helping to heal sexual problems or for people who struggle with vulnerability and intimacy. If sexual trauma is creating barriers to intimacy for you, EMDR may help.

The brain is like the sky. Sometimes traumatic events create a cloud cover.
EMDR Therapy helps to burn the clouds away so that the sun can reemerge, and you can begin to think clearly again.
