WHY CHOOSE EMDR?

EMDR is one of the most effective evidence-based practices for trauma. Typically talk therapy only activates the neocortex of the brain; whereas, EMDR activates the limbic system, brainstem and neocortex. This is the only form of therapy activating all 3 regions.

WHAT IS A SESSION LIKE?

A typical session is 50-minutes long, each addressing different “triggering” memories of the associated trauma or upsetting memory. There are eight phases your therapist will describe to you. Each will help you process the trauma at your own pace.

In just 8 EMDR therapy sessions, I was able to move past the event. Finally, I’m free from the emotional toll.”
