“As an EMDR therapist, I seek to help clients resolve current problems or symptoms by identifying and reprocessing underlying adverse life experiences which may contribute to or reinforce current distress. We then target current triggers and set up successful future templates. All of this leads to living more comfortably in the present and paves the road for a brighter future.”
