EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) can help you heal.
I am certified in EMDR by EMDRIA, The EMDR International Association. In addition to healing post-traumatic stress, EMDR can be effective for many other types of problems, including anxiety, depression, pain management, addictions, early psychological abuse or neglect, and performance enhancement. Most pathology is derived from earlier life experiences, which, when insufficiently processed, pervade the client in the present. EMDR processing of these traumatic memories allows more positive and empowering cognitions and affects to generalize, which, in turn leads spontaneously to more appropriate behaviors by the client. Much research and clinical experience have supported the effectiveness of EMDR.
Please call me at (973) 220-9007 or online here to schedule an appointment. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
“Margie Freeman is a warm and caring facilitator. Over the past months I have found the EMDR process to be a healing journey and a pathway that is most effective when it’s provided in a safe and understanding environment. Margie provides that environment. Traumatic blocks can be removed and repaired with this process which allows health to then be restored. That is what I am experiencing now. I am very grateful to work with Margie and I highly recommend her.”
