What is EMDR?

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) focuses on the individual's present concerns. The EMDR approach believes past emotionally-charged experiences are overly influencing your present emotions, sensations and thoughts about yourself.  As an example: "Do you feel worthless although you know you are a worthwhile person?"


EMDR processing helps you break through the emotional blocks that are keeping you from living an adaptive emotionally healthy life. EMDR uses rapid sets of bilateral stimulation to help you update disturbing experiences, much like what occurs when we sleep.

During sleep, we alternate between regular sleep and REM (rapid eye movement). This sleep pattern helps you process things that are troubling you. EMDR replicates this sleep pattern by alternating between sets of bilateral stimulation and brief reports about what you are noticing. This alternating process helps you update your memories to a healthier present perspective.
