History

Researchers discovered over 35 years ago that as the eyes move important regions of the brain are stimulated. In 1989 Dr. Francine Shapiro further uncovered that in prescribed conditions the process of eye movement reduces the intensity of disturbing, unsettling, traumatic thoughts. After a period of detailed scientific study she wrote a widely read article reporting her success in using EMDR as a therapy for treating trauma victims. It was a breakthrough article appearing in the highly regarded Journal of Traumatic Stress.

What is it like to do EMDR?

The process is simple, as the therapist facilitates the directional eye movement of the patient. Before this process begins, the therapist works with the client to identify a specific problem or multiple problems as a session focus. The time this process takes will vary from individual to individual.

The sessions are 60 to 90 minutes and are woven into traditional talk therapy. We have found it helpful to integrate EMDR with psychotherapy. This has helped our clients make adjustments, in their lives, to the changes that have occurred from EMDR treatment.
