Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an integrative psychotherapy approach that has proven effective in treating trauma and PTSD.


Developed by Francine Shapiro in the late 1980s, EMDR incorporates elements from various therapeutic techniques, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness practices, and bilateral stimulation through eye movements, tapping, or auditory tones.


The therapy aims to help individuals process distressing memories and experiences by facilitating the brain's natural ability to heal from psychological trauma. During EMDR sessions, the therapist guides the client through recalling traumatic memories while simultaneously directing their attention to external stimuli (like eye movements), which helps reduce the emotional intensity and negative beliefs associated with those memories. Over time, this process can lead to significant symptom reduction, emotional healing, and a restored sense of well-being for those struggling with the aftermath of trauma.

Laura and Heather are both trained in EMDR and ready to work with you.
