Working / Worked
Ive been seeing a therapist for 2 years for a variety of reasons. One of the biggest symptoms of my issues is food addiction. As we work on my challenges one layer at a time it becomes more believable to me that I will one day find balance and in doing so I will find peace and abstinence.

I no longer work with this therapist.

Was absolutely the best thing I have ever chosen to do for myself. I would not be here today with out my wonderful EMDR therapist. I cannot recommend it enough.
Working / Worked
Has been effective but need update protocols before every dental appt.
This by far was the best treatment I have had. I still have trouble with things but it took me from being stuck in the house to moving to another country.
Using EMDR has helped me in working through a couple of rapes, but I am beginning to deal with the final one, where I was sexually abused and then raped by a cousin.
Good so far
