EMDR therapy is a widely researched, evidence-based, and neuroscience-informed integrative therapy that was discovered and further refined to reduce distressing emotional symptoms from a multitude of challenging life experiences including isolated and protracted traumatic experiences, addictions, phobias, and more.
Using bilateral stimulation (be it eye movements, alternating auditory sounds, or bilateral physical sensations – hand buzzers), EMDR works with and aids your brain’s natural impulse to synthesize and metabolize maladaptive memories, behavior patterns, and beliefs that are getting in your way.
EMDR, simply put, helps your brain and body do what it naturally wants to do: move towards healing.
We can do both. I integrate EMDR into my relational trauma recovery therapy work when and if it’s appropriate and certainly for those who come to see me for EMDR therapy, we can weave advanced psychotherapeutic protocols beyond EMDR into our work, too.
I’m happy to work with you to design a style of therapy that best suits you and your clinical goals.
At this time, because of COVID-19, I am only offering EMDR therapy (as well as all therapy services) online.
Growing bodies of research suggests that EMDR therapy is still very effective when provided online.
