Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy for PTSD

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Did you know that virtually any trauma can cause PTSD?

  • Trauma is defined as an event that is life-threatening or that severely compromises the emotional well-being of an individual or causes intense fear.

  • Trauma is often stored in the flight/fight center of the brain serving as a template for caution and wariness for a re-enactment of the trauma.

  • Triggers to the trauma can generate painful memories and anxiety leading to serious compromise in quality of life, behavioral acting out, conflict-laden relationships, and not living up to one’s potential.

  • Phobias, fears, and avoidance can often be healed in a only a few EMDR treatment sessions.

  • Many clients have only a few sessions, successfully addressing the PTSD, and never need to return to counseling.
