At Long Beach Therapy, we utilize a variety of tools and techniques to help our clients reach their goals. In addition to regular talk therapy, we also offer researched based methods of helping clients through their issues. One of those research-based methods is called EMDR.
Although EMDR therapy was first used to treat complex PTSD and “simple” traumas, EMDR isn’t just for PTSD. EMDR can be very effective with depression, anxiety, phobias, self-esteem issues, anger issues, grief, and loss, as well as PTSD and trauma. Many people choose EMDR because they have been in years of talk therapy and haven’t seen much progress. EMDR tends to be a quicker treatment compared to other types of therapy styles.
