EMDR Therapy in Spokane Valley
EMDR Therapy has been shown to help stress-based depression. It can eliminate the depression that occurs with PTSD.
EMDR Therapy in Spokane Valley helps anxiety disorders of all kinds: General Anxiety, Fears or Phobias, and even Trauma and PTSD (Post-traumatic Stress Disorder). In fact, the World Health Organization recommends only two treatments for PTSD: EMDR and CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy).
EMDR Therapy has brought new hope to the treatment of addictions, whether substance addiction or behavioral addiction (gambling, sex, porn, and other compulsive behaviors). It can reduce urges to act out, and can dissolve the fixated false hope that the addiction will give you a wonderful feeling again and again. Generally it only does that very early, in the beginning of the love-affair with the addiction.
EMDR Therapy in Spokane Valley can also help with the pain and tragedy of loss and grief. You may have lost a loved one, a home, or a job. Any of these circumstances can potentially result in a tragic stuckness — like we can’t move forward. If that is the case, it is not normal grief. The grief process has become complicated and stuck. EMDR Therapy can help you to allow the deep feelings of loss to be faced, felt and processed until they are calmed to a normal level. Francine Shapiro, the originator of EMDR Therapy, referred to grief when she said, “EMDR can help take the knife out of your heart.” EMDR doesn’t save you from the grief process, but it helps it to flow in a healing direction.
