Therapy Style EMDR Therapy


Healing negative life experiences

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing) is a type of psychotherapy which facilitates healing in individuals struggling with intrusive thoughts, traumatic memories, and physically symptoms as a result of disturbing life events. Originally developed and utilized for military veterans, EMDR has been found effective for a variety of difficult life events including divorce, work-related stress, auto accidents, and grief.  

EMDR is a gentle therapy style employing bilateral (affecting both sides of the brain) stimulation in the form of lights, sounds, or tapping. The bilateral stimulation combined with memory prompts work together to recategorize disturbing memories. Individuals who experience relief through EMDR report that they still remember disturbing events but no longer feel oppressed by stress-inducing mental, emotional, or physical sensations in relation to the memory.
