E.M.D.R. Therapy

A powerful therapeutic approach to help you break free from the grip of past traumas

Window Portrait

We've all experienced trauma at some point in our lives. Trauma is when something from the past still bothers you, kind of like a lingering upset or disturbance. Trauma can also be understood as anything that happened too fast or too soon and overwhelmed your nervous system's ability to process it properly. If you don't deal with or push away that kind of trauma, it can make you feel stuck in the same mental state as when it all went down. 


With extensive training and consultation through Parnell Institute, Tacha Fletcher, LCSW, CCTP specialize in the treatment of attachment trauma using Attachment Focused Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing Therapy (AF-E.M.D.R). 

Signs of Attachment Trauma: 

  • Difficulty forming and maintaining close relationships

  • Low self-esteem and self-worth issues

  • Intense fear of rejection or criticism

  • Trouble trusting others

  • Avoidance of emotional intimacy

  • Chronic feelings of loneliness or isolation

  • Overdependence on others for validation

  • Difficulty regulating emotions

  • Fear of being vulnerable

  • Patterns of self-sabotage in relationships

  • Difficulty expressing needs and boundaries

How it works?

Experience the transformative power of AF-EMDR therapy, a specialized approach crafted by Dr. Laurel Parnell. Tailored from EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing) protocols, AF-EMDR uniquely targets the attachment formed with parental figures during childhood.​


Proven as a more advanced and effective treatment, AF-EMDR addresses a spectrum of mental health challenges, from posttraumatic stress disorder to depression, anxiety, panic attacks, and grief. Unlike traditional talk-therapy, AF-EMDR taps into your body's innate healing capabilities.​


The focus of AF-EMDR is to alleviate distress and strengthen positive thoughts related to traumatic events. Unprocessed traumas can linger in the mind, causing maladaptive thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. In a 60 or 90-minute AF-EMDR session, we stimulate and reprocess traumatic information painlessly. No need to recount distressing details – your brain takes the lead, putting you in control of your healing.​ 


Experience the positive impact of AF-EMDR after just 1-2 sessions. Ready to embark on your healing journey? Reach out for a free consultation and take the first step toward a brighter, more resilient future.
