Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) was created by Francine Shapiro for those who have had a traumatic event or a history of assault, neglect and abuse. EMDR is the treatment of choice for PTSD and a researched effective treatment for many types of traumatic events and memories and included as part of trauma informed care. EMDR has been found to be particularly effective for soldiers returning from war, police officers and other first responders who see traumatic events on a regular basis, and for children and adults traumatized by an event, car accident, or other types of traumatic and anxiety producing memories. I am an EMDRIA trained trauma informed therapist.
Please don't hesitate to ask about EMDR in the process of treatment or email me for more information.
