What is Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)?
We specialize in EMDR.
EMDR is a research-backed integrative therapy that uses our understanding of neuroscience to help the brain reprocess traumatic memories more effectively.
It works by helping to reprocess traumatic memories to make them less emotionally charged and overwhelming. EMDR uses visual, auditory, or tactile rhythmic side-to-side movements in order to stimulate the brain bi-laterally and stimulate reprocessing of help it reprocess the memories in a more adaptive way.

EMDR Therapy can help you find relief from unwanted thoughts and feelings.
EMDR has been shown to not only reduce negative trauma symptoms like intrusive thoughts, nightmares, and flashbacks, but also help clients to feel like they are able to let go of past events that have been keeping them stuck.
For example, some people may experience disturbing experiences throughout childhood. These don’t have to be dramatic in nature to be hurtful and cause an impact on our emotional wellbeing as adults.
While originally developed as a treatment for PTSD and trauma, EMDR has also been shown by research to be an effective treatment for:
Feelings of insecurity
