EMDR
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing
(E.M.D.R.)

EMDR is an effective and science-backed therapeutic intervention that alleviates negative thoughts or memories by accessing existing information and introducing new information through specific procedural processing steps.

EMDR is grounded in psychological sciences with decades of robust research and scientific data. EMDR integrates elements from attachment, behavior, cognitive, mindfulness, and bio-informational processing.

EMDR can be effective and impactful for all types of trauma, including early childhood trauma and recent acute traumatic events.

HOW DOES EMDR WORK? WHAT ARE THE STEPS/STAGES?

  1. Thorough History Taking

  2. Preparation

  3. Assessment

  4. Desensitization

  5. Installation of Positive Cognition

  6. Body Scan

  7. Closure

  8. Reevaluation

The above are the general steps an EMDR therapist will guide an individual through the resolution of their trauma experience, impact, and symptomatology.

For additional information, such as research, on EDMR, please go to www.EMDRIA.org.

When you are ready to overcome your trauma, contact us and get set up with a an EMDR trauma therapist to begin your journey to recovery.

A.R.T. TRAUMA THERAPY
ART

Don't Believe Everything You Think.

Keep the Knowledge. Lose the Pain.

Traumatic experiences can sometimes lead to unhelpful and often inaccurate thoughts about ourselves and the world around us. This can result in feelings of helplessness, hopelessness and low self worth.

Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) helps individuals reconsolidate traumatic memories so they no longer elicit strong emotional or physical responses. This allows thoughts to change naturally and enables individuals to experience post-traumatic growth.

HOW IS ART DIFFERENT?

  • Targets images and sensations

  • Voluntary image replacement

  • Takes healing beyond desensitization to "positization"

  • Process oriented, not content driven

KAP
KETAMINE ASSISTED PSYCHOTHERAPY (KAP)

KAP is a modern application of ketamine used for the treatment of PTSD.
