What is EMDR?
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is a powerful, evidence based, psychotherapy approach that is used world wide as an effective treatment for symptoms associated with post traumatic stress, anxiety and depression. EMDR therapy has been successfully applied in clinical settings for treatment of personality disorders, panic attacks, complicated grief, body dysmorphic disorders, disturbing memories, phobias, eating disorders, performance anxiety, stress reduction, addictions, sexual and/or physical abuse, and pain disorders. Trauma can come in many forms and can lead to symptoms that interfere with our ability to effectively function with daily life. EMDR therapy can provide relief. EMDR therapy is endorsed by the American Psychiatric Association, the World Health Organization (WHO), the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and Department of Defense, and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), among others.
