This is a form of therapy that is evidenced-based and therefore proven to help with clients overcome their personal trauma and addiction. All of our therapist are Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) certified which means for you that you are able to finally address the shame and trauma that has been binding or even crippling you for a very long time. The main concept behind EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) is just that. To help you find the files stored in your brain and to either erase the trauma al together or to finally make sense of it and no longer give that file any more power than it deserves.
EMDR is accomplished through the therapist moving their two main pointer fingers back and forth and while you (the client) are tracking the moving fingers back and forth, you are being asked specific questions to help you recall your trauma and are actually “erasing and replacing” the issues in a manner which then allows you to move forward and not let your PTSD hold you back any longer.
