What Is EMDR? 

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an extremely effective, extensively researched method of therapy that helps people recover from trauma and other symptoms. 
EMDR utilizes bi-lateral stimulation within a structured therapy to allow the client to experience shifts and gain insights into their experience. 

When the brain experiences a stressful or traumatic experience, the fight/flight/freeze trauma instinct is a natural response, and yet unresolved trauma can tend to create feelings of being frozen, feeling as if one is reliving the traumatic experience, or maladaptive beliefs about ourselves can remain unresolved. EMDR therapy helps the brain process these memories, and allows normal healing to resume. The experience is still remembered, but the fight, flight, or freeze response from the original event is resolved.

Certified EMDR clinicians receive significant training, consultation, and evaluation to ensure the best possible care for clients.

How is EMDR different from other types of therapy? 

EMDR therapy is designed to resolve unprocessed traumatic memories in the brain. EMDR also allows the client to process their experience or trauma without necessarily talking about their internal experience. For many clients, EMDR therapy can be completed in fewer sessions than other types of therapies.
