Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy

Heal your past with an effective, evidenced-based therapeutic approach that supports your whole being.

Our brains and bodies can and want to move toward health and balance – at times there are barriers that interrupt that process. EMDR therapy allows the brain to resume its natural healing process.

EMDR does not require talking in detail about your wounds, distress, or trauma. Together, we identify the various ways your past experiences have impacted you and we uncover memory networks that are keeping these pieces stuck or, unprocessed. EMDR simultaneously uses a technique called “bilateral stimulation” (or BLS) to work through these memories. With EMDR, we can reprocess distressing memories and negative beliefs together that are keeping you from living your fullest, most authentic life.

EMDR “tappers” used for tactile bilateral stimulation.

An approach that supports healing past traumas and wounds that are impacting your present.

EMDR is a well researched, popular therapeutic approach that was developed by the late Francine Shapiro, PhD., in the late 1980s. Research shows that EMDR can help to support the treatment of Posttraumatic Stress Disorders, Anxiety Disorders, Panic, Performance Anxiety, Depressive Disorders, Phobias and more.
