EMDR Therapy and Burnt Quesadillas with Zach

EMDR Therapy and Burnt Quesadillas with Zach

Michele admits she needs to take better care of herself. She mentions that finding and sharing dark content memes may be helpful if you’re feeling, well, depressed and alone. 

Today's guest is Zach, a wise zoomer who tells us about his experience with EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapy. EMDR is most commonly sought out by people with PTSD, anxiety, and panic disorders. Zach shares his experience with group therapy and CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) as well. 

Zach explains that burning a quesadilla should not make you feel like a failure. He tells us that he considers himself more of a millennial since he grew up with ‘90’s TV shows.  They talk about setting and reaching therapy goals. Zach tells us his methods for determining whether a therapist is a good fit. They discuss how narcissists project their own insecurities, using avoidance as a coping mechanism, and finding affordable therapy. He also tells us he finds all the good memes on Instagram, but otherwise doesn’t spend much time on social media. They discuss the toxicity of social media and Zach theorizes that social media is fostering a dopamine addiction in us all. Zach says that if he became the president tomorrow, he would prioritize making sure that mental health is better addressed in schools.
