What is EMDR?

Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing


Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing is a powerful psychotherapy approach that has helped an estimated two million people of all ages relieve many types of psychological distress. 


During EMDR therapy, the client calls to mind the disturbing issue or event, what seen, felt, heard, thought, etc., and what thoughts and beliefs are currently held about that event. The therapist facilitates the directional movement of the eyes or other dual attention stimulation of the brain, while the client focuses on the disturbing material while noticing whatever comes to mind without making any effort to control direction or content. Each person will process information uniquely, based on personal experiences and values. Sets of eye movements are continued until the memory becomes less disturbing and is associated with positive thoughts and beliefs about one's self; for example, "I did the best I could." During EMDR, the client may experience intense emotions, but by the end of the session, most people report a great reduction in the level of disturbance. 


*Designated as an effective treatment by the American Psychiatric Association, the World Health Organization (Who), the U.S. Department of Defense, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and more.

I am not what happened to me. I am what I choose to become.

-----Carl Jung

Asking for help can be difficult under the best of circumstances, but when you are in crisis, it may seem impossible.  However, taking the step toward emotional healing can be life changing. Suffering from anxiety, depression, panic attacks, relationship issues, life transitions and trauma does not have to be a lifelong sentence. 

The focus of trauma recovery is to help you create safety, develop internal and external resources, transform your relationship to past trauma, and create the conditions for optimal personal well-being. As your therapist, I will use my professional skills to the best of my ability to address your concerns and help manage possible risks. 

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and have training in Image Transformation/Feeling State Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy and Somatic (Body) Experiencing that provide relief from overwhelming emotional dysregulation.
