Help Reduce Triggers


Triggers are situations or experiences that can cause a person to experience a flashback or panic attack. EMDR therapy can help to reduce the severity of these triggers, making it easier for the individual to cope with their PTSD.

Improve Communication Skills


PTSD can cause individuals to have difficulty communicating, especially when it comes to discussing traumatic events. EMDR therapy can help to improve communication skills, making it easier for the individual to express their feelings and experiences in a healthy way.
