EMDR Trauma Treatment

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a form of trauma treatment developed by Dr. Francine Shapiro in the 1980s. She discovered that bilateral movements of the eyes in conjunction with intentional focus on a traumatic experience correlated with a reduction in sensitivity to that experience. The eye movement was discovered to stimulate the brain bilaterally. Clinicians now use alternate forms of bilateral stimulation with the same result.

Helping Make the Symptoms Better

Trained clinicians utilize EMDR therapy to ameliorate the symptoms of trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The symptoms of trauma and PTSD can be debilitating; including anxiety, depression, re-experiencing, irritability, anger management problems, sleep disorders, addiction, and more. The EMDR clinician will reconnect the client with their own internal resources to address and process the disturbing experiences. 

Both Ericka and Michele are trained in EMDR Therapy.
