I sat down with therapist and friend Kelly Wedell EdD, LPCS to talk about Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). EMDR has been used to successfully treat PTSD, and is being increasingly used to treat childhood trauma. I have been in therapy for over 20 years for childhood trauma, but haven’t tried EMDR. I am looking for therapies that will help me deal with triggers and reactive emotional responses that cause problems in my work and personal life.  EMDR is an incredible, evidence based resource you can utilize yourself and recommend to others who have experienced trauma in their lives.

There’s a podcast of the interview, a video of a mini EMDR session involving Star Wars, and an article/blog post on I’m a freelance writer for now, so check out my blog posts and the interesting discussions that occur on the website.
