EMDR – Campbell & San Jose, CA
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an integrative therapy approach that helps people heal from trauma and other challenges, such as grief/loss, child abuse, domestic violence, abandonment, PTSD, and other complicated and difficult life issues. EMDR has been extensively researched and this form of therapy has helped millions of people relieve many types of psychological stress.
So how does it work? In a nutshell, when we experience a really different challenges in life, our brain stores these memories differently than non-traumatic memories. EMDR works to reprocess these memories so they’re stored correctly, and consequently, you feel less triggered and impacted by these experiences. Instead of talking for months or years about the difficult life experiences you’ve faced, Dr. Mohsen works closely with you to identify these triggering memories over 1-3 sessions. Once we’ve done that, reprocessing begins! People often report feeling less distress and refreshed to continue on with their day almost immediately after sessions.
