What is Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)?

  • EMDR is a comprehensive approach to therapy that has been researched and proven to be effective for the treatment of trauma
  • Moving the eyes from side to side, or using other types of bilateral stimulation, causes the brain to make new neuroconnections, new pathways that allow to you see things from a new perspective
  • EMDR helps people eliminate distress, develop a new point of view and put the pieces of the puzzle together
  • EMDR therapy has helped millions of people of all ages relieve many types of psychological stress

What makes EMDR different from talk therapy?

  • There’s not as much talking. Most of the processing is done inside
  • Focusing on images, thoughts, emotions and body sensations involves more areas of your brain than just talking does. It helps you release and let go of what you don’t need
  • It’s quicker and more effective, especially for treating trauma

What kinds of issues does EMDR help?

  • EMDR is best known for treating trauma caused by accidents, assaults, natural disasters, war and other life-threatening situations
  • EMDR is also effective at treating childhood abuse or other disturbing life experiences that are getting in the way today!
