EMDR

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing

When we experience traumatic events we may have difficultly processing and integrating that experience into everyday life. It is this difficulty with integrating that results in trauma and PTSD. Through training in EMDR, I offer an additional method of psychotherapy to attend to traumatic experiences and reduce the emotional and psychological distress felt when those memories are activated. EMDR  can be effective when working with significant traumatic events as well as phobias, panic disorders and anxiety. 

EMDR is designed to resolve unprocessed traumatic memories in the brain, and can often be completed in fewer sessions. 

What to expect? 

During an EMDR session the therapist follows a set of protocols which will start the desensitization process. These can include either eye movements, tapping or auditory beats. With each set of motions, you will be asked to follow the repetitions several times. It is these movements, during the recall of the traumatic memory, that will reduce the emotional charge.
