This client presents with a history of severe early sexual abuse from her grandfather whom she loved. The sexual abuse memories, which had been disassociated for 35 years, had come back with her daughter’s birth. The client had been working on the reprocessing of the memories and their related symptoms for many years with EMDR and other therapies. It was important for the client that I be present, attuned and that I see her strengths as well as the harm she experienced as a result of the abuse. We work together collaboratively during this session, almost like a dance.
EMDR for Anxiety and Guilt – $30 (43 min.)
In this video, I demonstrate how to bridge back from a current problem or anxiety and find the target from the past. After bridging from the past, I use the modified protocol to process the early memory. After processing the past, the client returns to process the present and imagine a positive future.
EMDR with a Relationship Issue – $30 (62 min.)
Here, I demonstrate how to use an attachment-focused approach to EMDR. We begin by exploring the presenting problem more fully to determine goals of treatment. I then install resources and prepare for EMDR processing.
EMDR with a Traumatic Incident – $30 (65 min.)
In this session, I use bilateral tapping on the client’s knees while her eyes go back and forth, resembling REM sleep. During the desensitization, she associates to other traumatic incidents, one of which requires containment.
Repairing Birth Trauma with EMDR – $30 (48 minutes)
In this video, the client presents a problem of general anxiety and life-long belief that: “I am not safe in the world.” This video demonstrates how to bridge back from a negative cognition and shows how to use imagination and resource interweaves to repair early trauma.
EMDR for the Traumatized Caregiver – $30 (64 minutes)
Here I work with a woman who is bothered by the serious/chronic illness of a close family member whom she is taking care of. This is an example of working with standard EMDR protocol.
EMDR with Fear of Learning – $30 (54 min.)
In this session, I demonstrate how to bridge back from a current problem to find a target from the past. Many interweaves are also used in the process to unblock the processing.
Attachment-focused EMDR for Social Anxiety – $30 (51 min.)
In this video, repeated transference is worked with. Through the use of the bridging technique, we discover that the root of the client’s symptoms connect to damaging relationships with her parents.
EMDR as Sacred Work – $30 (47 min.)
During EMDR processing in this session, I resonate with the client’s traumatic experience while timeless awareness, wisdom and spiritual insight arise and are reported by the client.
EMDR with Phobia – $30 (59 min.)
Here the client presents with the fear of eating fruit. She has had this fear for as long as she can remember. I demonstrate how to treat phobia by using a three part protocol. I use several interweaves, particularly resource and imaginal to unblock processing.
