    What is EMDR Therapy?

    Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is a psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma. 

    How does EMDR work?

    EMDR therapy uses a technique called bilateral stimulation to repeatedly activate opposite sides of the brain. Eye movements are often used to facilitate bilateral stimulation. These eye movements mimic the period of sleep referred to as rapid eye movement or REM sleep, and this portion of sleep is frequently considered to be the time when the mind processes the recent events in the person’s life.

    EMDR helps the brain reprocess traumatic memories so that normal, adaptive information processing is resumed. EMDR also helps uncover and process maladaptive beliefs that developed as the result of the trauma. For more information, please visit
