About EMDR

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), originated by Francine Shapiro in 1987, is now used by over 40,000 therapists worldwide. They have already helped over one million people address a multitude of emotional issues. EMDR uses bilateral stimulation of the brain, through sight, sound, or touch, to accelerate the brain’s information processing system.

I have been a therapist for over twenty-five years and have been using EMDR for the last twelve. The results continue to amaze me. In a brief number of sessions, major life limiting traumas can be healed. EMDR saves you time and expense. It also saves you from enduring needless emotional pain.

We have all experienced something, large or small, in our lives, which has limited us in some way. A big trauma is obvious, such as a plane crash. A small trauma can be just as limiting but not as obvious, such as being called a name as a child and later finding yourself unable to talk in front of crowds. Dr. Seligman, author of Learned Optimism, has labeled the aftermath of trauma as “learned helplessness.” EMDR helps correct this and leaves you with more freedom to realize your true potential.
