EMDR + Trauma Therapy

Transformative Healing with EMDR Therapy

At Marda Loop Wellness  we embrace the power of innovative healing with Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy. This evidence-based approach offers a transformative alternative to traditional cognitive and talk therapies, especially for those dealing with trauma and emotional distress.

I was struggling with anxiety and panic attacks - I was already seeing Dr. Roth as a naturopath so when I heard she was going to be offering EMDR I was excited to be able to try this treatment for anxiety with someone I already trusted.

Dr. Roth was so patient and kind throughout the whole process. We worked through several things that were contributing to my anxiety and panic attacks and really got to the bottom of where it all started.

I feel so much more in control of my anxiety and panic attacks - I no longer live in fear of anticipatory attacks and I feel that even though they could come back, I have many more tools now to face them head on.

What is EMDR?

EMDR therapy is an integrative psychotherapy approach that has revolutionized the treatment of trauma and emotional disorders. It employs an eight-phase treatment process, including bilateral stimulation (often through guided eye movements), to help the brain reprocess traumatic memories and reduce their emotional impact.

A Unique Alternative

Unlike conventional talk therapies that primarily involve discussing past events, EMDR focuses on the emotional and psychological effects of those events. This therapy aims to change the way these memories are stored in the brain, thereby reducing or eliminating their impact on our mental state.

Who Benefits from EMDR?

EMDR, originally renowned for its effectiveness in treating trauma, PTSD, and anxiety, has now gained recognition as a comprehensive approach to psychotherapy. The impact of our past experiences on our present selves may differ, but the truth remains that we have all been influenced by impactful or traumatic events that shape our current behavior. Clinical research supports the efficacy of EMDR in processing and integrating distressing experiences in a highly effective manner. This therapy is especially beneficial for individuals who may have found traditional therapeutic approaches less effective or more challenging to navigate.
