Hi Elizabeth. Several people in my network of friends and family recommended EMDR after reading this piece, so I spoke about it with my therapist yesterday. I’m interested in trying it, but I’m a bit hesitant mainly because of the cost (I currently pay out of pocket for therapy because I have a high deductible insurance plan). So, that’s my main roadblock now but if I find that talk therapy isn’t helping, then EMDR is definitely something I plan on trying.
