Connected Heart

Your Journey to Resilience

Be guided and inspired to transform your life. We teach Heart Knowing, a way of being completely connected to the four core systems of our lives: mental, emotional, physical and spiritual.

Along the way you’ll experience the support and encouragement of a committed community, Licensed Mental Health Providers. Let the journey begin!

What is Austin EMDR?

Here at Connected Heart our Licensed Mental Health Providers are certified and trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing or EMDR. EMDR therapy is a comprehensive psychotherapy that offers a way to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress resulting from traumatic life experiences. Our Austin certified therapist uses EMDR therapy to show that the mind can heal from psychological trauma much like the body recovers from physical trauma.

Through thoughtful and developed protocols and procedures learned in EMDR therapy training sessions, clinicians help clients activate their natural healing processes. During EMDR therapy sessions, you process traumatic or triggering experiences in a safe and controlled environment while our Connected Heart therapist directs your eye movements.

Psychotherapy and psychology. Emdr therapy help with psychological problems. Sadness, longing, despondency, depression. Eye movement to the right and left.

Trauma or stressful events can cause the brain to process information differently than it normally would. Which can lead to information getting stuck in your head in unhelpful ways that if persistent can negatively affect you in your everyday life. This stored information can be triggered in the present and can cause you to have thoughts, feelings, or bodily sensations that transport you back to the time the trauma occurred. This affects our perspective, the way we frame our world, and how we relate with others. 

EMDR allows the brain to heal from experiences that were traumatic, adverse, or overwhelming by allowing the brain to process that information and store it in a way where the brain now knows, “I’m in a different Circumstance, that’s not happening to me anymore.” Now we know that we can literally change the way we see or view an event or situation and, as a result, we can experience it differently. Our Austin Psychotherapy online program is a guided journey that takes our years of professional experience and applies them to your healing journey.
