EMDR is a trauma resolution treatment modality that has currently more scientific research than any other non-pharmaceutical intervention. Based on scientific evidence and thousands of client and clinician testimonials, EMDR has proven an effective and rapid method of accessing and reprocessing traumatic material. During EMDR treatment the client attends to emotionally disturbing material in brief sequential doses while simultaneously focusing on external bilateral stimulation.  I use a ‘Theratapper’ that sends a low electrical pulse from one hand to the other.  Tapping on each hand alternatively could also be used instead while processing the material at the same time.

After completing treatment, many clients report that they still remember the trauma. However, when confronted with traumatic stimuli, they don’t experience the accompanying strong emotions anymore. They heal from the often, debilitating symptoms and distress from triggers that remind them of the disturbing life experience(s). The client learns new associations (more adaptive memories or information) in connection with the traumatic material.


  • After a tragic and traumatic event in my life I knew I needed guidance and help. I’m so glad that I found Danielle and she helped me navigate the difficult times with a mix of talk therapy and emdr. I purchased touchpoint wristbands so we could do emdr therapy online as we are both in different parts of the country. I was very nervous to do the emdr as it means revisiting the event and at first I wasn’t quite sure whether it made a difference. But a difference it made. It just took a while for me to notice that my emotions were not running the show all day anymore. I also learned techniques to calm my nerves when needed. The touchpoint wristbands are also handy for that because if I have a day where I’m visited by uninvited flashbacks I can wear them and take 10 minutes out of my day to calm myself and make the emotions less heavy. I’m taking a break for now but it’s a reassurance to know that I can also return to sessions with Danielle if things get too difficult again. But for now, I can breathe again and I’m not spending my days reliving my trauma and that’s a result I’ll treasure every day.
