  EMDR Therapy: 
 

In addition to a variety of therapeutic practices, we also offer Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy. EMDR is a form of therapy based on the Adaptive Information Processing (AIP) model—both developed by Francine Shapiro. The AIP model utilizes our brain’s natural inclination toward health, and sees many emotional and mental health issues as being the result of unprocessed or maladaptively processed experience. By identifying and reprocessing pivotal experiences in the past, current struggles and symptoms diminish significantly.

The full protocol for EMDR therapy involves:

  1. History taking and assessment to determine whether EMDR is appropriate at this time and for the presenting problem;
  2. Preparation to ensure readiness and safety for reprocessing;
  3. Identifying and reprocessing past experiences that set the foundation for the problem;
  4. Processing present situations that still elicit disturbance; and
  5. Incorporating adaptive and new experiences into memory networks  to overcome skill or developmental deficits in present and future situations.
