EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing and is a modern therapeutic method that quickly and effectively relieves the aftereffects of trauma, including physical and sexual assault, molestation, accidents, war, and natural disasters. It is also effective in treating phobias, panic, anxiety, addictions, and grief.

EMDR is an integrative approach that can be used as an adjunct to the therapy you are already receiving in order to help reprocess experiences or address specific issues efficiently. We use EMDR to help resolve issues that have not been adaptively processed on their own and are therefore still causing you distress.

EMDR is a powerful tool and for the clients that are ready, the change that they are able to experience is exciting and keeps me in awe of what people are capable of accomplishing.
