Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing

EMDR is an abbreviation for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. It is an innovative form of counseling that links many successful elements of a variety of therapeutic approaches in combination with eye movements. The eye movements help to effectively stimulate the brain's information processing system, which may generate significant improvements in short period of time.

This therapy can help with both the healing of psychological pain and physical discomfort related to trauma, anxiety, depression and self-esteem issues. It is used to accelerate the treatment of both upsetting past events and present life conditions.

Francine Shapiro, Ph.D., developed EMDR in 1987 and to date, over 100,000 mental health therapists have been trained.

I have been trained by the EMDR Humanitarian Assistance Program and I have received Level I and Level II intensive training and practicum.
