    “The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are. I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.“  – Carl Jung

    To the man who closes his eyes, and the scene just plays over and over in his mind.

    To the parents who expected to come home with a new baby, but the crib is empty.

    To the men and women who repeat those same awful words to themselves they heard as children.

    To the man who breaks out in a sweat and has a panic attack when he tries to drive again after a terrifying car accident.

    To the partner who just had to bury their spouse and didn’t get to say goodbye.

    Traumatic life experiences rock us to our core! 

    Coastal Teletherapy - Online EMDR Therapy in Florida

    We may feel numb, angry, hopeless, or ashamed.

    We may question the world as we know it and wonder if it’s something we did or didn’t do.

    We may try to sleep but wake up in panic. We may be triggered by a smell or a sound that never impacted us  before.

     These are NORMAL reactions to ABNORMAL events! Traumatic life experiences threaten our sense of being on every level. 

    Even though you’ve gone through life altering experiences, it doesn’t mean you can’t find healing. Over the last 30+ years, there’s been an incredible amount of research dedicated to various types of trauma therapy. One of the most researched trauma therapies is EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) Therapy. 

    At Coastal Teletherapy, we specialize in treating adults (who reside in the state of Florida) that have gone through various types of traumatic experiences using  EMDR (online and in person) to help individuals find healing, peace, and transformation.

    EMDR Therapy in Florida

    What is EMDR Therapy?

    EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapy is a highly evidence-based therapy for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder as well as other mental health conditions. When we experience traumatic events, our Flight-Fight-Freeze response kicks into gear to keep us safe. However, as a result of how our brains experience these events and the way these events are stored in our memories, talking about these events is often not enough. In the late 1980’s, renowned researcher Francine Shapiro, PhD, discovered that combining eye movements and persistent upsetting memories dramatically reduced  emotional distress and symptoms related to PTSD.
