Going for the Gold: EMDR and Elite Performers

In the EMDR community, we readily acknowledge the effectiveness of the AIP Model for PTSD or DD.  What if we could also utilize EMDR for professional athletes, dancers, and creatives—people who are at the top of their game, as it were, or should be?   


Well, we can.   


Elite performers engage in activities that are both highly rewarding and highly stressful.  Working with the high-performance mindset requires careful consideration to apply effective intervention strategies.   


That’s where Sara Gilman comes in.  Dr. Gilman, PsyD. LMFT, has worked with professional football and baseball players, Olympic gymnasts and equestrians, triathletes, cyclists, and ice skaters, as well as professional singers, actors, speakers, and artists.  She’s an accomplished veteran in the specialization of peak performance.
