EMDR and somatic experiencing

Has anyone had any success with either of these? I really don’t know what there’s left to try for me. I’ve put in so much work and I feel like I’m just treading water. Need some hope. What can I do? Will working on trauma help?


My 23 year old daughter was abused for years by her boyfriend (we had no idea because she was so insistent he was a good guy) from ages 13 to 21.

At 21 things fell apart for her. She quit school, quit working, and broke up with him

She did inpatient, followed by EMDR. It helped her slowly over time. She started working again a few months ago and is doing much better now. She still struggles, but she’s functioning.


I dunno but my case manager wants me to try emdr therapy. Ive been too overwhelmed lately too make moves towards things like that. If i end up doing it I’ll make a thread about it so stay tuned. :slightly_smiling_face:
