Treatments for Trauma

Prescription Drugs such as Zoloft, Prozac or Paxil: Helps to relieve symptoms, however does not address the root of the trauma and will not allow the brain to naturally heal.
Traditional Counseling: Helps to talk to a professional about the trauma, however it can be very challenging to want to open up about the trauma in detail.
EMDR: Helps to allow the brain to use it’s natural healing powers to move towards resolution. Click here to learn more about EMDR.

All three of these options have their pros and cons, however I would strongly recommend the last option EMDR. EMDR is a phased, focused approach that focuses on reconnecting to the images, self-thoughts, emotions and body sensations that are associated with the trauma. This allows a much better chance for the brain to use it’s own natural healing powers to move towards a resolution. This healing process can be facilitated through bilateral stimulation while re-experiencing the trauma within a safe environment.
