EMDR therapy is widely recognized and respected as highly effective in treating trauma and anxiety

EMDR therapy is recognized as an effective form of treatment by organizations such as the American Psychiatric Association, the World Health Organization and the Department of Defense.

EMDR therapy can fast-track the process of living your best life…

Repeated studies show that by using EMDR therapy people can experience the benefits of psychotherapy that once took years to make a difference. It is widely assumed that severe emotional pain requires a long time to heal.  EMDR therapy shows that the mind can in fact heal from psychological trauma much as the body recovers from physical trauma. 

Studies have shown that 84%-90% of single-trauma victims no longer have post-traumatic stress disorder after only three 90-minute sessions.  Another study, funded by the HMO Kaiser Permanente, found that 100% of the single-trauma victims and 77% of multiple trauma victims no longer were diagnosed with PTSD after only six 50-minute sessions. In another study, 77% of combat veterans were free of PTSD in 12 sessions.

Who can benefit from EMDR therapy?

While studies have proven EMDR therapy to be an effective form of treatment for military veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) the potential application of EMDR encompasses a much broader and diverse list of patients that have experienced traumatic or life-changing events. EMDR cam be effective in treating “everyday” memories that are the reason people have low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, feelings of powerlessness, and all the myriad problems that bring them in for therapy including, but not limited to:

  • Loss of spouse or partner

  • Loss of child or miscarriage

  • Infidelity

  • Diagnosis or ongoing treatment of serious illness or disability experienced by you or loved one

  • Divorce or separation

  • Postpartum depression or trauma

  • Loss or change of job, sale of business

  • Retirement

  • Long-term separation from children, becoming an “empty-nester”

  • Trauma experienced by military veterans, first-responders, medical professionals

  • Trauma experienced by victims of sexual, physical assault, domestic violence and verbal abuse

  • Emotional impact of relocating from another city, separation from friends, family and social network

  • Depression or anxiety stemming from anhedonia – inability, extreme difficulty in experiencing pleasure
