In 1989, therapists designed Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) as a psychotherapy method specifically for treating traumatic memories.

One thing that distinguishes EMDR is the bilateral stimulation of the brain, while attending to inner emotions of distress. After treatment with EMDR therapy, distress is relieved, negative beliefs are reformulated, and physiological arousal is reduced.

After thirty years of clinical use, now EMDR may be used to treat the following conditions:

  • Anxiety
  • Panic Attacks
  • Depression
  • Phobias
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Dissociative Disorder
  • Grief
  • Eating Disorders
  • Pain Management
  • Personality Disorders
  • Stress
  • Sleep Disorders
  • Addiction
  • Performance Anxiety

In my office, we will regularly utilize some of the EMDR stress reducing and resilience resourcing techniques. In my experience, EMDR treatment requires a 90-minute session in order to have adequate time to fully process and integrate the experience. Call me today to get started.
