Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy, or EMDR, helps the mind recover from extreme emotional pain or trauma. It is based on the idea that the mind can heal just like any physical pain one may experience.

EMDR is an evidence-based practice with proven effectiveness for adults with a history of trauma and has a history of working with teens as well.

 

How does it work?

EMDR therapists train patients to think of positive imagery and stress reduction techniques when a traumatic memory comes to mind. They also train in eye movement exercises to desensitize negative thoughts.

 

Who can it help?

EMDR treats those who have undergone emotional distress or trauma, or who have PTSD. Many use EMDR counseling as treatment for depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and anxiety in both children and adults.

 

What are the benefits?

In case studies, some have shown that a very high percentage of trauma victims no longer had symptoms of PTSD after only three 90-minute sessions of EMDR.

 

What are the side effects?

Because of exposure to negative emotions associated with trauma, sometimes there can be a temporary increase in distress and anxiety. However, this is known to resolve itself overtime.

We want people to know that they can have better marriages, better relationships, a better view of themselves and the world around them. They can find balance, joy, and purpose.
