I have some exciting news!
I’ve recently started to receive training in the therapeutic modality of EMDR therapy (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). While this may sound “weird” or very different from typical therapy, it is effective. In fact, it is beneficial for a wide range of mental health issues. Originally, EMDR mainly targeted PTSD and “big” traumatic situations (such as combat or destructive accidents. However, the approach has become widely used for all sorts of challenges.
Why Choose EMDR Therapy in Texas and Indiana With Jordan Therapy Services?
One of the main benefits of EMDR is an increase in processing time. Especially when you’re working through distressing thoughts, experiences and emotions. When processing time increases, you may find that it’s possible to overcome. You may notice you’re less triggered by issues or events that have plagued you for years. Therefore, this mode is evidence based. Meaning it has been researched well and shown to be effective. Overall, EMDR helps us to process information and memories that are stuck. Furthermore, it causes a sort of back up on the neural pathway in our brain that connects the different parts of our brain. Once those memories can be processed, things shift, free up, and information can start moving again. What can this mean for you? It allows for more relief, calm, less activation, fewer triggers, and balance.
Can EMDR be done with online therapy and is it still effective?
So glad you asked! This is a common curiosity about EMDR and online services. Especially, since the Covid-19 pandemic began. You do not need to be driving to most therapy sessions, when it can be done via online platforms. While EMDR sessions may look a little different when taking place online, it is just as effective. In our sessions, we will use “tapping” to activate what is called “bilateral stimulation”, in most cases. However, if you are not responding to tapping, we can still use the classical eye movement technique to aid in reprocessing. Some clients find tapping to be their preferred method. For example, if you are prone to migraines, bilateral eye movements can actually trigger or bring on a migraine.
Having completed my training in the time of the coronavirus, online EMDR therapy is how I was taught. Thus, making it very comfortable and natural for me to lead clients through video sessions. Your trauma therapist is still there to coach you through the steps of EMDR. I am here to support you and facilitate the same EMDR experience. Many advances have are being made toward online EMDR therapy. In fact, it is more accessible online since the coronavirus, and even beforehand in our ever-growing advanced world.
Jordan Therapy Services Unique Approach to Online EMDR Therapy
Although I do not identify as a trauma therapist or specialist, I do feel honored to be able to utilize EMDR with my clients to help with anxiety, postpartum depression, low self-esteem, negative self-talk, upsetting situations, and beyond. EMDR is a uniquely effective model for the treatment and management of all kinds of mental health symptoms and challenges. You may be feeling “stuck” and nothing you do frees you up from the rut and rumination you’re experiencing.
EMDR may be exactly what you need to start to look at things differently and change the way you are perceiving information and living your life. EMDR helps to put more adaptive information on board, meaning information that can help you to reframe and see things in your life or yourself very differently than ever before. Sometimes we just need that little extra help to digest, process, and move forward in a healthy, functional manner.

What is Holding you Back from starting EMDR Therapy in Indiana or Texas?
I am currently in the training and consultation phase. One of the great aspects of EMDR therapy is that I can use it immediately. A part of the training recommends immediate use as an added benefit. Additionally, I have tested EMDR myself, to add it to my practice to help my clients. It has been remarkable to see the impact of EMDR on my clients. I look forward to being able to offer this for years to come.
