Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched on an internationally and proven effective for the treatment of trauma. EMDR is a set of standardized protocols that incorporates elements from many different treatment approaches. 

In 2004, the American Psychiatric Association determined EMDR to be an effective treatment of trauma. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and Department of Defense placed EMDR in the “A” category as “strongly recommended” for the treatment of trauma.  In 2010, SAMHSA, a National Registry of Evidence-based practices (NREPP) endorsed EMDR

To date, EMDR therapy has helped millions of people of all ages relieve many types of psychological stress. 

The amount of time the complete treatment, depends upon the individual experiences of the client. Complete treatment of the targets involves a three pronged protocol (1-past memories, 2-present disturbance, 3-future actions), and are needed to alleviate the symptoms and address the complete clinical picture. The goal of EMDR therapy is to process completely the experiences that are causing problems, and to include new ones that are needed for full health. "Processing" does not mean talking about it. "Processing" means setting up a learning state that will allow experiences that are causing problems to be "digested" and stored appropriately in your brain. That means that what is useful to you from an experience will be learned, and stored with appropriate emotions in your brain, and be able to guide you in positive ways in the future. The inappropriate emotions, beliefs, and body sensations will be discarded. Negative emotions, feelings and behaviors are generally caused by unresolved earlier experiences that impact daily functioning and general level of distress. The goal of EMDR therapy is to leave you with the emotions, understanding, and perspectives that will provide a healthy foundation to support optimal functioning in daily life.
