Psychoeducational Event | Exploring EMDR with Therapist Jessica White

March 30 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Many people seek out and benefit from psychotherapy, but misconceptions about what therapy is (and what it is NOT) still persist. One of the many misunderstood acronyms floating out there on Psychology Today is EMDR therapy (which stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing.)

While highly effective and well-researched, most people don’t know what EMDR is or how it could potentially help them.

Whether you’ve sat on the couch before or you’re a curious novice, you are welcome to join us for an informational session from an EMDR-trained professional counselor on the basics of EMDR therapy.

Jessica will discuss what EMDR therapy is, how EMDR and somatic psychotherapy differs from traditional talk therapy, what to expect from a typical EMDR course of treatment, and how to seek out a specialist.

  • Please note that this is an educational and informational event and attendance does not constitute a therapeutic relationship, nor is the information provided a medical intervention.

As long as I can remember, it’s been natural for me to listen to others, to truly hear them, and to connect on an emotional, empathic level. What’s more, I’m also really good at results-oriented, action-based problem-solving that is fun and collaborative. Holding space and gently guiding forward are necessary ingredients for successful counseling.

I moved around a lot while I was growing up, which gave me an early education in resiliency, adaptability and the diversity of the human experience. After six states and two continents, I landed in Philadelphia for college and have been calling it home since 2002.

I took the long, scenic route to wind up in private practice. After grad school, I worked in about every clinical setting you could imagine: intensive outpatient for substance abuse issues, longterm residential facilities for the chronically mentally ill, and everything in between. I even spent a handful of years in the managed care world, so I’m pretty fluent in insurance-speak. These experiences colored in the lines of my formal education, and helped me to bridge the gap between theory and practice.

I find I’m most in flow when working one-on-one or in small groups with people who are committed to healing and growth, and who are looking for a knowledgeable guide and collaborator on the path to wellness. I come to the table with my own lived experience and my own bumps and bruises along the way. It is important to me to admit my missteps, examine my biases, and be open to always learning as both a clinician and a human being.
