Past trauma can have a profound impact on individuals’ lives. If you’ve experienced trauma that is affecting your quality of life, The Woolf Center can help. At our clinic in Rockville, Maryland, we offer eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy services that are designed to help you heal from past traumas, overcome distressing memories, and reclaim your emotional well-being.
EMDR Trauma Therapy—A Crucial Step Toward Healing and Recovery
EMDR therapy is a highly effective form of therapy for individuals who have experienced traumatic events. During your EMDR therapy session, our licensed therapists will help you:
- Process traumatic memories – Reprocessing traumatic memories can reduce their impact on your daily life.
- Reduce distress and other symptoms – EMDR therapy targets symptoms associated with trauma, such as flashbacks, nightmares, anxiety, and intrusive thoughts, helping patients find relief.
- Foster emotional healing – Through EMDR therapy, you’ll access and process emotions associated with your past trauma, facilitating emotional healing and a healthier outlook on life.
How EMDR Therapy Works
During your EMDR therapy session, a licensed therapist will guide you through a series of standardized procedures that include focusing on distressing memories while simultaneously engaging in bilateral stimulation, such as eye movements, taps, or sounds. This process will help you integrate traumatic memories into more adaptive and less distressing narratives. This holistic approach to trauma therapy can provide lasting benefits.
