EMDR Therapy

EMDR can help to resolve unprocessed traumatic memories and to promote new perspectives and healing.

I am a trained EMDR Therapist based in Portland, Oregon, and working online with clients throughout all of Oregon and California.

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapy is an evidence-based, research-driven method of psychotherapy that’s been proven to help people treat and recover from PTSD and trauma-related life events as well as many other challenges including depression, anxiety, addiction and eating disorders.

“If we are ready to tear down the walls that confine us, break the cage that imprisons us, we will discover what our wings are for.”

-Michael Meegan

EMDR therapy aims to resolve unprocessed, traumatic memories in the brain. Once the distressing memories or experiences are fully processed, they are replaced with new, more adaptive understandings and perspectives, enabling you to move forward.

Benefits include:

Greater emotional regulation

A decrease in or alleviation of physiological traumatic responses including nightmares, flashbacks, intrusive thoughts and hypervigilance

Strengthening of positive beliefs about oneself

"I have been to several therapists over the past 10 years and have made significantly more progress with Dacia than with anyone else."

"I finally feel stronger, healthier, and am actually very excited to enter into my next chapter with new knowledge about my past and patterns. You are a wonderful therapist!"

"When I first started working with Dacia, I was at one of the lowest points in my life. Dacia helped me connect to more self compassion and provided me with insight as to why my patterns kept occurring."

"I've been able to make so many positive changes in my life. Thanks for all that you do!"

"Dacia is nonjudgmental and will instantly make you feel welcomed and cared for...You couldn’t be in better hands than with her, so don’t wait any longer and take that next step today."

"Seeing Dacia was one of the best decisions I have ever made for myself. She helped me through a huge loss and life transition. She is also incredibly well-spoken and full of compassion."

"Literally can't say enough positive things about Dacia. She made me feel so completely valid and just respected as a human."

"I am currently seeing Dacia and have been making the investment in therapy for about 6 months now. I still have some work to do, but the changes in my life are undeniable. I would do this all over again in a heartbeat."

I look forward to meeting you.
