Interview Insights

Top 3 Takeaways from this Interview

  • Most people think that therapy needs to be a long, drawn-out process lasting several years, and even decades. EMDR success stories prove that results can come in days.
  • The way your brain encoded these experiences, leaving you with a negative belief about yourself (usually starts very early in childhood). Memories contain distressing elements of your experiences that were unprocessed at the time, and your brain thinks you need to hang on to it for survival purposes.
  • EMDR is NOT talk therapy. EMDR is about eliminating your problems – completely.
