Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing
Our clinicians all specialize in EMDR and other trauma therapies, such as trauma focused CBT, Internal Family Systems, Trauma Sensitive Yoga, and Emotional Transformation Therapy. The therapy we use most is EMDR.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) uses the brain's natural healing capabilities to heal maladaptively stored memories. EMDR functions off of the correlation between eye movement and the brain reprocessing memories, similar to the function of Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep. EMDR targets this function of the brain on what is to be reprocessed and how. EMDR is an evidenced based approach for PTSD and has found to be effective treating a variety of other mental health concerns such as depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), and eating disorders. EMDR tends to be a quicker treatment modality than traditional talk therapy due to the work of EMDR done on a deeper level of the brain. EMDR does not require in depth discussion of the presenting issue and focuses on somatic sensations, emotions, and core beliefs around the memory. Please check out emdria.org for more information.
