EMDR Therapy

You’re sick and tired of feeling sick and tired.

Feeling unlike yourself, hopeless, and exhausted from thoughts of suicide are common signs of depression. These thoughts might be frightening, or they might just feel draining.

Recognizing this is the first step to seeking help if you’re unsure how to improve your situation.

What is EMDR therapy?

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an interactive form of therapy that involves working with memories, body sensations, core self-beliefs, and emotions to help people recover from trauma or other distressing life experiences.

EMDR is empirically- researched and has demonstrated effectiveness for treating PTSD, Depression, Anxiety, Panic Disorders and many more challenges.

How is EMDR different from other therapies?

EMDR allows the brain to restore and recover, healing naturally through the use of Dual Attention Stimulation with alternating eye movements, sounds or taps.

This allows you to change how the memory is stored so you can process it, adapt, and move forward with your life. 

It is a mind-body approach to therapy which typically produces long-lasting results in 6 – 12 sessions.

How can EMDR therapy help with the healing process?

Our brains process trauma via the amygdala, hippocampus, and prefrontal cortex, which handle stress, memory, and behavior. However, intense events can interrupt this, trapping traumatic memories in our working memory.

EMDR therapy enhances the brain’s natural healing, processing these memories and alleviating the fight, flight, or freeze responses. This therapy helps individuals recall events without the associated emotional distress.
