What is EMDR?

EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing and is an empirically supported therapy for treatment of PTSD and is gaining more research for other presenting concerns. Unlike talk therapy, where you are expected to talk through your problems, EMDR uses bi-lateral stimulation (BLS) to access, reprocess, and reduce the emotional charge of old memories. BLS includes eye movement, sound, or touch and is used to stimulate opposite sides of the brain. The BLS allows you to reprocess the memories without having to speak through them, but the client often speaks to the clinician about what they are experiencing during each "set" of BLS. I use EMDR alone and in conjunction with other treatment (either with me or another clinician).


All About Therapy

Perhaps you're down or anxious - maybe you're unsure about the future of a relationship, or just feel that you aren't living the life you were meant to lead. Whatever your needs may be, I am here to offer support. Therapy is a process of growth and self-discovery, and in my sessions I promote behavioral transformation by encouraging a positive outlook and the adoption of new attitudes and reactions. I have the tools and professional experience to help you get back on track.
