EMDR Therapy

Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, or EMDR Therapy, is used to treat a variety of psychiatric conditions, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), panic attacks, eating disorders, addictions, and anxiety.

The use of EMDR in dealing with these issues involves a patient’s rhythmic eye movements. By working with the patient’s eye movements, the therapist helps to lessen the impact of the patient’s memories of traumatic events. Therefore the therapist helps the patient shift his or her thoughts from memories of the traumatic event(s) to happier memories.
