Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) is an evidence-based therapy for the treatment of trauma – a method that utilizes the brain’s inherent plasticity and capacity for growth and change. The EMDR method allows the brain to update past experience with newer, adaptive learning, leading to decreased distress and activation from past traumas.
If talk therapy has reached a plateau, or you are feeling stuck with a particular emotional activation, EMDR may be of benefit. EMDR allows access to processing that traditional talk therapy may never reach.
Useful for the following needs:
Complex and developmental trauma
Single incident trauma (assault, accident)
Chronic medical conditions
