After spending two years in Virginia, I’ve returned to Colorado to start M2 Solutions, a private therapy practice. While in Virgina I had the honor and privilege of working with active military, veterans and folks in government service who were exposed to traumatic events in the field. In addition, I became certified in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) a treatment modality for reprocessing trauma.
This amazing tool allows people to reprocess trauma using an innovative technique that involves both sides of the brain. The desensitizing piece reduces the emotional reactivity to the memory of the event. Amazingly this peace alone gives the person a sense of control and relief that they thought they had lost. The reprocessing piece addresses the negative belief that is causing the ongoing problems in their life.
EMDR has many uses. I am excited to be back in Colorado and in future posts I’ll continue to talk about how EMDR works.
