what is  


Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a therapeutic technique that allows individuals to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress caused by negative or traumatic life events. It's often assumed that trauma and emotional pain take forever to heal, which is simply not true. Your body has an innate set of systems in place to heal from physical injury and your mind is no different. It can and wants to heal from psychological trauma. 

EMDR is guided by the Adaptive Information Processing (AIP) model, which states trauma is stored and stuck in the brain's neural network. Often, it only takes being reminded of a piece of the memory for the entire event to be recalled. The goal of EMDR therapy is to help one reprocess the associated material of said traumatic experiences and add adaptive components to the brain's neural networks.

Santa Clarita, CA

While this varies per client, research from the United States Department of Veterans Affairs suggests EMDR to typically be administered in weekly, up to 90-minute individual sessions over the course of approximately 3 months. That beautiful feeling that comes with knowing this doesn't have to be permanent? Hope.
