Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a cutting-edge therapy that helps individuals overcome unresolved trauma and ruminating or negative thought patterns. 

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a breakthrough therapy treatment in healing trauma and clearing negative beliefs.

This form of psychotherapy facilitates healing of emotional distress rooted in disturbing life experiences. Often times with EMDR, healing occur much more rapidly than with talk therapy alone.

Using eye movements (or other bilateral stimulation), EMDR therapy helps clients process and release old information trapped in the mind and body. With the help of trained clinician, clients may release the charge or trigger of disturbing images, body sensations, debilitating emotions, and restrictive beliefs.

More than 30 positive controlled outcome studies have been done on EMDR therapy.  Some of the studies show that 84%-90% of single-trauma victims no longer have post-traumatic stress disorder after only three 90-minute sessions. (emdr.com/what-is-emdr)

In addition to the treatment of posttraumtic stress disorder (PTSD), EMDR is also helpful in healing less obvious, unrealized traumas that manifest as depression, anxiety, phobias, low self-esteem, creativity blocks, and relationship difficulties. As emotional and physical blockages are healed, many people experience an increased sense of joy, openness, and deep connection with others.

"“Changing the memories that form the way we see ourselves also changes the way we view others. Therefore, our relationships, job performance, what we are willing to do or are able to resist, all move in a positive direction.”
