What is EMDR?

EMDR or Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing is an evidence based and interactive psychotherapy modality used to process and relieve psychological stress and the effects of trauma.  With a highly trained professional the natural healing powers of the brain are accessed to integrate and move towards an adaptive resolution in a safe and measured way. 

Through bilateral stimulation and EMDR protocols, clients are able to safely process traumatic experiences.  The result is this traumatic information is no longer psycholically disruptive.

The goal of EMDR is to rapidly metabolize the dysfunctional residue from the past and transform it.  EMDR directly changes the way the memory is stored in the brain, thus reducing and eliminating the problematic symptoms.

What can EMDR be used for?

EMDR has helped millions of client recover from traumas significant ranging from war to childhood abuse.  It can also be used in the treatment of anxiety, panic attacks, low self esteem, complicated grief, sleep problems, phobias, addictions, pain relief, and many other issues.

"Changing the memories that form the way we see ourselves also changes the way we view others.  Therefore, our relationships, job performance, what we are willing to do or are allot to resist, all move in a positive direction!"
