What Is EMDR Therapy?

First discovered in the 1980s by Dr. Francine Shapiro, Ph.D., EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy. As a client focuses on unprocessed traumatic memories, this therapy tracks eye movement. Dr. Shapiro worked for many years developing the use of EMDR therapy for treating a variety of trauma and trauma-related disorders, including:

  • Anxiety
  • Panic Attacks
  • Phobias
  • Chronic Illness & Medical Issues
  • Depression
  • Bipolar Disorders
  • Dissociative Disorders
  • Eating Disorders
  • Grief & Loss
  • Pain
  • Performance Anxiety
  • Personality Disorders
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) 
  • Trauma & Stress-Related Issues
  • Sexual Assault
  • Sleep Disturbance
  • Substance Abuse & Addiction
  • Violence & Abuse

How EMDR Therapy Works

1. Connect The Wires

EMDR therapy starts by igniting communication between different parts of the brain, including the amygdala (inner alarm signal), hippocampus (helps with learning and memories), and prefrontal cortex (handles and controls behavior and emotion).


2. Allow The Brain To Process

As you reflect on distressing thoughts during an EMDR session, your brain is allowed to process the event – which resolves its instinctual responses of fight, flight, or freeze.

3. Resume Healing

After your brain is given the opportunity to process trauma, it retains the memory but can now resume its natural healing process so you can move forward with your life.
