EMDR Therapist Colorado

Kristin Mefford, MA, LPCC

Are you searching for an EMDR Therapist in Colorado? Have you heard of EMDR, or Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing? It’s actually a really helpful psychotherapy treatment that has been found to effectively process traumatic memories and experiences. Francine Shapiro developed this treatment back in the late 1980s, and it has since become widely accepted as an evidence-based treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

During an EMDR session, a therapist will use different forms of bilateral stimulation, such as eye movements, taps, or sounds, to help safely process traumatic memories in a supportive environment. This can help reduce symptoms of distress and allow for more effective coping strategies. It’s important to note that EMDR treatment is personalized to meet each person’s unique needs. While it’s typically used for PTSD, it may also be useful for addressing anxiety, depression, and other mental health conditions. As an EMDR Therapist in Colorado, I’d love to help you see how this counseling modality might work for your mental health struggle

Trauma can be defined as a type of serious psychological injury brought about by exposure to situations or events beyond an individual’s capacity to cope. These experiences may be physical, emotional or sexual in nature. Traumatic events can include natural calamities, accidents, abuse, combat, and violent incidents. Common aftermaths of trauma include anxiety, depression, flashbacks, nightmares, and a heightened sense of alertness. Trauma can have persistent and disruptive effects on a person’s psychological and physical well-being as well as their capacity for daily routine. Fortunately, with adequate treatment and support, individuals can surmount the impact of trauma and go on to live meaningful and satisfactory lives.
