Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a specialized type of therapy for trauma as well PTSD, depression, anxiety and more.  EMDR is a highly researched-based therapy that is effective for people of all ages.

How does EMDR work?

EMDR therapy supports you in resolving unprocessed traumatic memories.  Because of the way the therapy is structured, you do not have to talk about all of the details of your trauma.  The brain has a natural way to recover from traumatic events and memories; through communication between the amygdala, which is the alarm for stress, the hippocampus, which helps with learning and memories, and the prefontal cortex, which controls behavior and emotion. During a traumatic event, we naturally enter a fight, flight or freeze response. When the distress from the traumatic event continues, it’s as if the trauma is “frozen” in the brain, which results in upsetting thoughts and emotions and body sensations that can feel as if the traumatic event is happening right now. The EMDR process supports the brain in processing these memories, thoughts, emotions and body sensations so that normal healing can occur.

Our trained EMDR therapists will guide you through the specialized therapy process with the goal of decreasing your symptoms of depression, anxiety, fear and other symptoms you may be experiencing from trauma.
