What is EMDR?​

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma. EMDR therapy is a set of standardized protocols that incorporates elements from many different treatment approaches.

EMDR therapy has been declared an effective form of trauma treatment by a wide range of organizations. In the United States, these include the American Psychiatric Association, the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies, the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs and the World Health Organization.

Testimonials

"Since the EMDR set, I've had some very visual memories, but they don't cause me to be physically ill in my stomach anymore, which is tremendous for me because that was almost debilitating at times. I cannot thank you enough for the invitation. It was an absolutely priceless experience for me and I appreciate it very, very much."
