It is widely assumed that severe emotional pain from trauma requires a long time to heal. EMDR therapy shows that the mind can heal from psychological trauma much as the body recovers from physical trauma. When you cut your hand, your body works to close the wound. If a foreign object or repeated injury irritates the wound, it festers and causes pain. Once the block is removed, healing resumes. EMDR therapy demonstrates that a similar sequence of events occurs with mental processes. The brain’s information processing system naturally moves toward mental health. If the system is blocked or imbalanced by the impact of a disturbing event, the emotional wound festers and can cause intense suffering. Once the block is removed, healing resumes (EMDR Institute, 2020).

How does EMDR work? EMDR works by re-processing how your brain perceives “danger” signals and how it responses “overwhelming emotion.” The technical version of EMDR is that it works through using bilateral stimulation to reprocess through past painful events that have left you stuck in your life. EMDR allows you to activate your disturbing memory and process it while you either follow the therapist’s fingers with your eyes or by you tapping on your knees or shoulders. By alternating right and left with either your eyes or your hands, both right and left hemispheres of your brain work together to reprocess the memory and store it properly in your brain.

Relationships, communication, feelings of isolation, and anger often challenge us throughout our journey. These are some of the common issues that men deal with, and sometimes deal with differently then women. Societal roles and expectations can create a more complex emotional state, yet less connection to deeper emotions.

Often times, men believe that they should just put their heads down and power through life’s difficulties. How many times have you heard the phrase, “stop crying and be a man”, or “toughen up”? The truth is, you shouldn’t have to feel ashamed to ask for help too! In the long run, these emotional barriers will cause us to isolate or explode externally. 


Our counselors have studied the psychology of societal expectations and masculinities for years. We bring this study to our work with men on issues and challenges specific to men. No matter what your struggling with: a life transition, divorce, trauma, loss for a partner or friend, anger, stress from work or home, etc, we can help you through this challenging time.
