Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a specialized psychotherapy approach that has helped people of all ages relieve many types of psychological stress and performance issues.
During EMDR, the therapist works with the client to identify a specific problem as the focus of the session. The client calls to mind the disturbing issue or event, including what was seen, felt, heard, thought, etc., and what thoughts or beliefs are currently held about the event. The therapist facilitates thedirectional movement of the eyes while the client continues to notice what comes to mind. Sets of eye movements are continued until the memory becomes less disturbing and is associated with positive thoughts about one's self.

Scientific research has established EMDR as effective for post traumatic stress. However, clincians also have reported success using EMDR in treatment of the following conditions:
sexual and/or physcial abuse
eating disorders and body dysmorphia
Typical EMDR sessions are 75 to 90 minutes, and the number of sessions depends on the nature of the presenting problem and the severity of any associated trauma. Please call or e-mail with any inquiries or to be book an appointment for EMDR.
