EMDR Therapist - Psychologist
5600 Medical Circle, Madison, WI
EMDR Therapy, like all effective psychotherapy, begins with the therapist and client getting to know each other and developing a safe-enough relationship to enable more detailed history and taking and the development of a treatment plan. When the problems which brought you to therapy are recent traumatic events (for example, auto accidents, war trauma, sudden personal loss), EMDR processing of the events can begin with little study of your past. Other issues which have multiple roots in painful past experiences from childhood to your recent past require a more thorough understanding of your history and joint development of a treatment plan.
