Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

What is EMDR and how can it help me?

Is EMDR evidenced-based and who does it help?

EMDR is an effective and extensively researched psychotherapy that has been proven to help heal those with trauma and PTSD. Research studies have also found EMDR to be helpful with OCD, grief, chronic pain, depression and anxiety. Please click on any of the underlined symptoms to read more.

What are the benefits of EMDR?

  • Many clients find quicker relief with EMDR than traditional psychotherapy. 

  • Clients can process trauma without going into detail about the traumatic events.

  • EMDR is effective for both those who have experienced a single trauma or developed complex trauma (long-term trauma or many traumas over time)

  • EMDR can address past events as well as anticipated future events (example: fear of giving birth after a past traumatic birth)

How does EMDR work if I'm already in therapy?


EMDR works as a stand-alone therapy or can be a supplement to your existing talk therapy regimen if it hasn't been effective in addressing your trauma needs. We offer both regular 60 minute sessions, typically scheduled weekly, and intensives on a limited basis. Intensive EMDR is a full day program (6 hours) designed to accelerate treatment for those who are seeking quicker relief than traditional sessions which are often scheduled an hour at a time and one week apart. EMDR intensives are a great way to jumpstart treatment for those who are having trouble functioning day to day or have constrained schedules.
