But What Would an EMDR Session Look Like?

This week on the You Need a Counselor Podcast, Julie and Chrissa are joined by Molly Barrett, a fellow Heart and Solutions Counselor. Molly is a licensed mental health counselor, certified EMDR therapist, and the clinical director of the Heart and Solutions Cedar Rapids office.

In this episode, we talk about provider-based trauma and delve into what an actual EMDR – Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing – session would look like. Listen as Molly guides Chrissa, Julie and yourself through introductory questions and techniques of EMDR.
