WE CAN HELP YOU

treating trauma

Going through trauma is not rare—about 60% of adults experience one trauma in their lives. Often, counseling is fundamental in the process of healing for many people. Many members of our team are trained in EMDR and are ready to help you!

what is EMDR?

EMDR, or Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing is a method developed by Dr. Francine Shapiro, and is a “research-supported, integrative psychotherapy approach designed to treat symptoms of trauma and post-traumatic stress. EMDR sessions follow a specific sequence of phases, and practitioners use bilateral stimulation, such as eye movements, to help the client process unresolved memories from adverse experiences. EMDR can be used to address any number of concerns, and it is compatible with other types of therapy.”¹

How does EMDR work?

Some memories associated with traumatic life experiences may remain unprocessed due to the high level of disturbance experienced at the time of the event. This stored memory may be linked to emotions, negative cognitions, and physical sensations experienced during the event. This may affect the way a person responds to similar future adverse experiences. “Through EMDR therapy, these fragmented memories can be reprocessed so that they become more coherent and less disruptive.”¹

Who can benefit FROM EMDR?

EMDR is a therapy tool that has been shown to be effective for various kinds of issues, especially for individuals dealing with:

  • All forms of trauma
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Anger
  • Fears and phobias
  • Chronic pain
  • Substance abuse
  • Sports performance issues
