Eye-Movement Desensitization Reprocessing

EMDR, or Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, is a therapeutic technique that was developed by Francine Shapiro, Ph.D to address trauma response and emotional reactions in the body.

EMDR can be helpful for children and adults to address the following issues and concerns:

  • Anxiety

  • Car accidents or fear around driving 

  • Depression

  • Eating disorders 

  • Grief and loss 

  • Low self-esteem, performance anxiety, and lack of confidence

  • Panic attacks and phobias 

  • PTSD, traumatic experiences, and other stress-related issues

  • Rejection or emotional abuse

  • Sexual assault

  • Substance abuse and addiction

  • Violence and abuse 


How does EMDR work?

Unlike traditional forms of therapy that focus on talking or verbal processing to work through past issues, EMDR focuses on changing thoughts, feelings, and behaviors from the distressing issues and aligning your brain back to its natural healing process.


How can EMDR help me? 

EMDR can be helpful for you if you struggle to move forward due to difficult past experiences or experience triggers in your daily life due to past events. Some clients experience dreams or thoughts about past events, even when they don't want to. It helps with emotional regulation, stabilization, and provides coping strategies that you can do anywhere, anytime. 

Can we do EMDR if we meet online?

Yes! Research has shown that EMDR therapy is just as effective virtually as it is in person. Therapists can invite clients to engage in bilateral stimulation through eye movement, auditory signals, and tapping. I do require clients to be on video for EMDR and will not provide EMDR therapy via phone sessions.

EMDR therapy is evidence-based, and is endorsed as an effective therapy by many organizations.
