What is EMDR?
Therapy for Trauma Resolution
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) Therapy is a trauma treatment that helps people heal from traumatic events and life disturbing experiences. Highly researched and evidence based. Recommended treatment for those with PTSD.
EMDR therapy is an interactive psychotherapy technique used to relieve psychological stress. It is an effective treatment for trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
Over time, this technique is believed to lessen the impact that the memories or thoughts have on you.
EMDR helps to identify events that feel stuck, and cause distress in your current life. These events can become unprocessed memories that get stored in the brain with disturbing images, thoughts, emotions, and physical sensations that without treatment may lead to distressing symptoms and behaviors.
EMDR therapy helps facilitate the activation of the brains inherent system to process and integrate the information that got stored or stuck. EMDR won't erase a memory; rather a person will be able to remember the story without all the emotional charge that was distressing before the treatment.
EMDR is a very personal and private experience that differs from person to person- together we can help you get over a distressing memory or event and put it where it belongs, in the past.
Using EMDR for trauma resolution, we work with cleaning up the memories stored in the body. We dig deep to uncover the stories you are unconsciously holding internally that are holding you back, keeping you stuck and running the show. EMDR is a very private and personal process- it looks different for every person.
Understanding coupled with compassion changes everything.
stop second guessing yourself
stop telling stories in your head that keep you unhappy
stop feeling down and anxious about things you can't change
start feeling relaxed, in charge of your life and able to handle anything
Trauma manifests in the body as patterns of stuck emotion and stories. We work to uncover and re*wire those pieces so you can have the life you desire.

Eye Movement Therapy
What it is and how we will use it virtually to help you reduce and eliminate anxiety, post trauma triggers, depression, nervous system activation and PTSD symptoms.
EMDR therapy is an eight-phase treatment. Eye movements (or other bilateral stimulation) are used during the session. Bringing up different aspects of the event or thought in your mind, you use your eyes to track the therapist’s hand (or virtual object) as it moves back and forth across the field of vision. As this happens, internal associations arise and the you begin to process the memory and disturbing feelings.
In successful EMDR therapy, the meaning of painful events is transformed on an emotional level. Unlike talk therapy, the insights gained by clients in EMDR therapy result from the client’s own accelerated intellectual and emotional processes. The wounds have not just closed, they have transformed.
Research has been done by Harvard, APA, Department of Veterans Affairs, Department of Defense, SAMSHA, World Health Organizations and many others. Some studies show 100% remission in singular traumas in 6 sessions and 77% remission of symptoms in multiple trauma survivors. PTSD in combat veterans has been seen to subside in 12 sessions.
