What is EMDR?
"Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an extensively researched, effective psychotherapy method proven to help people recover from trauma and other distressing life experiences, including PTSD, anxiety, depression, and panic disorders." (from emdria.org)
Rather than reliving traumatic experiences from your past, EMDR accesses and brings healing to unprocessed memories that are causing what can be at times debilitating side effects from the trauma.
If you are in crisis, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, a free, 24-hour hotline at 1.800.273.8255.
