Manhattan NYC Leading EMDR therapy for anxiety, depression, bi-polar, more. Proven, transforming results. Therapy used by thousands of people. Lasting wellness.

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is widely recognized as a powerfully effective practice that facilitates and augments clinical processes toward the best outcome. As a therapy it has been deeply studied for nearly thirty years. As such, EMDR is among the most successful healing therapy methods. Our two downtown New York City offices are located in central neighborhoods, so your visit is convenient. We are always delighted to start talking with new people seeking help toward well being that is long lasting and genuinely transforming. We are both certified in the EMDR treatment method developed and taught by Francine Shapiro. This involves a detailed 8-step protocol that has demonstrated positive results with many tens of thousands of individuals over the course of nearly three decades.

Anxiety therapy for Manhattan - using EMDR we offer transforming anxiety therapy for those suffering from chronic stress and related conditions in our city, or outside it. A full range of anxieties are addressed through eye movement therapy. Depression therapy, as well, is successfully treated through the this modality. For PTSD, our work has truly and profoundly helped many people. And further, addiction, phobias, relationships are successfully treated.

How does EMDR work? Eye movement therapy helps the mind in establishing connections, and to complete learning that—for whatever reason—it has not been able to do on its own or with other therapies. We find it to be very effective when it is used along with other treatment models such as Gestalt therapy and Neuro-Linguistic Programming. Serving all New York City, NYC.

What are the first steps?

Our offices create an environment of healing that begins this deep process. The therapist carefully helps a client remember images, and construct useful positive and negative cognitions that represent the images and memories. The client is then asked to identify places in his or her body where feelings or blocked energy may be stored. The therapist helps the client use these images, cognitions, and body sensations, along with bi-lateral stimulation, to help access other parts of his/her brain to make connections he/she has been unable to make before.

You should consider EMDR if:

  • You feel blocked in traditional therapy

  • You suffered a trauma such as: an accident, a rape, sexual abuse, child abuse, physical abuse, the death of a love one, an assault, or a pattern of unsuccessful relationships.

  • You may consider EMDR if you suffer from anxiety, depression, brooding or worry, addiction, or a phobia.

History of EMDR

EMDR was discovered and developed by Dr. Francine Shapiro. It began in 1989 when she noticed the relationship between eye movements and brain activity. Dr. Shapiro has done extensive clinical research that demonstrates the effectiveness of EMDR.
