I was honestly tired of talking about how I was feeling and reliving crime scenes while trying to find mental relief and peace. In the midst of a rough season, EMDR was mentioned to me. I was skeptical at first, but also willing to try new methods of therapy. After some research, I was intrigued at the idea of our own minds essentially being able to heal themselves with very little talk. I can say with certainty that after a few sessions I have been able to overcome some very dark feelings associated with the trauma I had been struggling with for a while, that was in part related to my work as a crime scene detective. I know I’m not done, but I also know that EMDR has been key to my healing process and resiliency.
