EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) is a psychotherapy treatment originally designed to alleviate stress associated with traumatic memories but is now used to treat a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, panic attacks, substance abuse and eating disorders. EMDR therapy appears to enable people to heal from symptoms because of its direct effect on the way the brain processes information. Following a successful EMDR session with a therapist, a person no longer relives the feelings, images and sounds when the event comes to mind. You can still remember what happened, but it has less power and is less disturbing.

EMDR takes the therapy process a step further. Talk therapy can be really helpful, but some individuals are seeking more than what talk therapy can offer. Sometimes, talking about our past can be more painful and something that we then tend to avoid. EMDR allows for the pain from your past to be acknowledged without sharing all of the details of it.

EMDR is a really different and cool therapy in which the therapist leads in you remembering a past event which is still impacting you. You then utilize eye movement or tapping to reprocess this memory so that the present day impact is reduced or illiminate You are concious throughout the expereience and teh therapist will assist you if you do not know the memory or how to pull it up.

People often find they’ve ‘processed’ an issue for years but still feel ‘caught’ in old patterns.This is because they haven’t fully cleared the underlying source of their difficulties. EMDR can help clear these painful emotions, behavior patterns and reactive triggers. It works by gently releasing the pain, trauma and symptoms at their source-where they are lodged, in the deep limbic brain.

Carolyn Duhn

Individual Therapy

EMDR is an amazing way to connect the head and the heart. We often times 'get over' things mentally but our bodies and hearts haven't caught up yet. We might have panic attacks, unhelpful relationship patterns, negative ways of talking to ourselves and overwhelming emotions that point to the unfinished business of the past that EMDR can help to heal.

Sarah Freeze

Individual Therapy, Adolescent/Teen Therapy

EMDR is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are a result of disturbing life experiences. One aspect of EMDR therapy is that you do not have to talk in detail about a trauma for it to be digested by your own information processing system in the brain. I will work with you to support your brain's own healing mechanisms!

Rebecca Frank

Individual Therapy, Family Therapy, Adolescent/Teen Therapy, Group Therapy

EMDR has been a proven therapy model to help people process through the traumatic memories that tend to run their life. EMDR helps take a traumatic memory and the symptoms that are related to the event and helps process the event as a memory rather than something that is repeatedly happening.

Our bodies can store memories that we may not remember. These type of memories can stay with us and connect to current experiences. EMDR, or Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing can assist individuals by decreasing some of the pain that is attached to some memories.
