Online Remote EMDR in California

Can Parts Work with EMDR Help Me?

  • You relive old feelings or memories, perhaps from your childhood.

  • Your actions and the way you view yourself aren’t in line with each other.

  • You feel worthless or undeserving of meaningful relationships.

  • You feel like you are navigating landmines and there are old reminders showing up in today’s life as triggers.

  • You find yourself lashing out or crying all the time.

If you're struggling with trauma or anxiety, you may benefit from Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy.

How Remote Virtual EMDR Works

Virtual EMDR is a widely used and accepted practice in therapy, and if it is appropriate, you can do it in the comfort of your own home. Virtual EMDR can be used remotely with tools including :

  • Remote Virtual EMDR app or web assisted programs that use Visual, Audio Bilateral Stimulation (BLS).  For more information on BLS or EMDR please see my FAQ tab.

  • Virtual EMDR can also use tactile BLS, which can be achieved using tappers which are handheld buzzers that provide vibration (not shocks!), or you can learn a method to self-tap if buying tappers are not within your means ( I can recommend some to you).

  • I also have updated training using EMDR 2.0 and the Flash technique.  These techniques can help you process traumatic memories that you might be afraid to look at or feel too overwhelmed to think about.

EMDR may help to change our negative and stuck beliefs about ourselves and help us identify a path forward, redefining how we would like to see ourselves move on in the face of our past trauma.

How the Therapy Process Works Over Time

Therapy sessions consist of 45 to 90 minutes, one-on-one sessions that help you work through your concerns. In addition to listening, I will ask questions and check in to see what you're experiencing, I play an active role, but I believe that you have the resources within you that will help to get better. Here’s how the process can unfold :

  • First, I provide a safe, accepting space so that you will feel comfortable sharing your concerns with me at your own pace and to whatever depth you are comfortable with.

  • Through hearing your story, I will start to get a picture of what your challenges are.  We will establish what goals you would like to see happen with therapy.

  • We will start with helping you with immediate concerns like managing difficult emotions and challenging life situations by learning relaxation skills and breathing exercises over a period of sessions.  If parts work is appropriate, we will facilitate inner dialogue to explore and manage inner conflict.

  • We will assess your readiness for virtual EMDR and establish a history and plan to target past and present difficulties that are showing up in your life, while providing education about the process of using virtual remote EMDR. 

  • If we’re ready to use EMDR to process, we will process old memories and feelings at a pace you are comfortable with. 

  • We will use techniques to envision how you would like to see yourself handling future events and stressors to cope with unease and uncertainty.

  • We will continue to assess your goals and how you feel about where you are at in your therapy.

Does any of this resonate with you?
