A relationship exists between two people. It is the relationship that is the client. Couples work includes unlocking core issues that are a barrier to each person’s heart and openness to intimacy. Mutual trust, acceptance and respect are also cultivated to access joy, pleasure & companionship together. Couples work is an alchemical process that creates more space and room in the relationship for each partner to regain a sense of self and a personal connection or union with their partner.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, is a late-stage, trauma resolution method. Developed in the late 1980’s, EMDR currently has more scientific research as a treatment for trauma than any other non-pharmaceutical intervention. Based on empirical evidence as well as thousands of client and clinician testimonials, EMDR has proven an efficacious and rapid method of reprocessing traumatic material. EMDR appears to assist in processing of traumatic information, resulting in enhanced integration – and a more adaptive perspective of the traumatic material. The utilization of EMDR has been shown to obviate the need for some of the more difficult abreactive work (i.e. reliving the trauma), often associated with the psychoanalytic treatment of a variety of conditions, including generalized and specific anxieties, panic, PTSD symptoms (such as intrusive thoughts, nightmares, and flashbacks), dissociative disorders, mood disorders and other traumatic experiences. Theoretically, EMDR is about integration-bilateral hemispheric (right/left brain) integration; triune brain (brain stem, limbic system and cerebral cortex) integration; and at least some type of mind/body integration, but practically, it’s about convincing the mind and body that the traumatic event is, indeed over. EMDR helps to put the past in the past, where it belongs, instead of staying stuck in it (feeling like it has happened all over again in the present-with the same thoughts, emotions and body sensations- that accompanied the event in the past).

“It is not by meticulous care in avoiding all contaminations that we can keep our [spiritual body] clean and give it grace, but by urging it to give vigorous expression to its inner life in the very midst of all the dust and heat and hurts.” — Rabindranath Tagore
