ABOUT EMDR

EMDR is a scientifically proven therapeutic approach to treating trauma and helping alleviate the pain of traumatic memories. EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. This type of therapy targets disturbing memories that lead to anxiety, depression, impaired functioning, and other symptoms of trauma so help you can reprocess what happened to you and begin to live your life again.

EMDR therapy utilizes principles of neuropsychology such as bilateral brain stimulation to treat trauma and PTSD. EMDR has been vastly studied and has been proven to be effective by extensive research. It is a highly systematic technique to help you get free from the painful traumatic experiences that have been preventing you from living the life you want to live. Read below to find out more about therapy EMDR sessions.

HOW EMDR WORKS

Through EMDR therapy, I will gently help you access painful traumatic memories that are stored deep within the brain’s neural pathways of long-term memory. After bringing these memories to the surface, I use bilateral brain stimulation techniques such as light tapping in order to reprocess the painful memories so that they no longer negatively “charge” or activate you. Essentially, EMDR therapy transforms the traumatic memories so they are stored in a different part of the brain, which transforms your experience of these memories. Through this therapeutic technique, these memories no longer impair you and you will begin to free yourself from your grip.
