Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
What is EMDR?
EMDR mimics bilateral eye movements that naturally occur during sleep to help the brain process memories. It is a psychotherapy approach that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences.
How does EMDR work?
EMDR therapy focuses on past memories that are contributing to the problem, the present situations that are disturbing, and what skills the client may need for the future. EMDR is a safe and effective method of therapeutic treatment.
What can EMDR treat?
EMDR can be used to treat any trauma including PTSD. It can also be used to treat anxiety, eating disorders, and depression.
