The recent presidential election, toxic rhetoric and divisiveness has activated and triggered many individuals who have unresolved trauma(s). As a Psychotherapist and trauma therapist with a private practice in New York City, many individuals, both male and females, have sought treatment to deal with traumas that have surfaced years and decades later as a result of the accusations of sexual assault and boundary violations that surfaced during this past election cycle. Clients state that they now feel empowered and sufficiently supported to begin to tell their personal stories of rape, assault and inappropriate behaviors. Some have never shared their stories--not with trusted friends or even family members. For some, being in the presence of another, to receive their experience, help hold their fear and terror and help sort out confusion and reality can be extremely healing. Some who have suffered in silence will need more support. EMDR therapy is a therapy modality that can successfully heal these experiences from a neurological standpoint, as well as reduce the impact of painful memories, distorted self-concepts and further support healing the body.
Many patients seek EMDR therapy following slow progress with traditional psychotherapy or when they feel they have not benefitted from talk therapy, hypnosis or CBT. As a licensed psychotherapist in New York City, EMDR has become my technique of choice to treat a variety of concerns. After years of integrating it into my practice, I've experienced extraordinary success with this technique and feel honored to have witnessed healing, change and growth with my clients. Whether it's trauma(s) related to developmental and relational trauma, a dysfunctional childhood, an accident, addictions, alcoholism, eating disorders, performance problem, crippling anxiety, relationship betrayal, healing from an affair,
