Trauma & EMDR TherapyReconnect with yourself by processing the trauma.
Have you been wanting to feel more calm in your life? Often when you have experienced trauma it creates a situation where you have trouble breathing and being in the present moment. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Trauma therapy allows you to heal and put down the baggage (trauma) so that you can step into the present without it.
