EMDR – Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing
Replace Negative Experiences with Positive Thoughts and Feelings for Happier and Healthier Life with EMDR therapist in Los Angeles
Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing
Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) is a powerful tool used in psychotherapy to treat trauma, panic attacks, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, sexual dysfunction, stress caused by chronic diseases, and other reactions associated with PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder).
EMDR can help process negative experiences from the past entirely and allow the client to replace them with positive thoughts and feelings that will lead to a happier, healthier life.
What is EMDR, Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing?
EMDR therapy is an eight-phase treatment. As a certified EMDR-practitioner, I take a thorough history of the issue at hand, determine which memory to target first, and then work with bilateral stimulation to incite reprocessing.
Some clients describe the process as feeling like a lucid dream or watching a movie of events from their life. In successful EMDR therapy, the memories become less disturbing, and the meaning of painful events is transformed emotionally.
