What Is EMDR?

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, (EMDR), is the latest in psychotherapy for treatment of PTSD, trauma, addiction, stress, and many other emotional troubles. This exciting new technique is revolutionary to the treatment of psyche problems because it effectively treats the problem by rewiring the neuropathways in the brain.

Specifically, we utilize EMDR – Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. This is an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma. This is a set of standardized protocols that incorporates elements from many different treatment approaches. To date, EMDR therapy has helped millions of people of all ages relieve many types of psychological stress.


What is Brainspotting?

Brainspotting locates points in the client’s visual field that help to access unprocessed trauma in the subcortical brain. Brainspotting (BSP) was discovered in 2003 by David Grand, Ph.D. Over 13,000 therapists have been trained in BSP (52 internationally), in the United States, South America, Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Australia and Africa. Dr. Grand discovered that “Where you look affects how you feel.” It is the brain activity, especially in the subcortical brain that organizes itself around that eye position.
