Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR Therapy is form of therapy that helps individuals work through distressing events and situations in their life. This may include trauma, attachment wounds, PTSD, grief, anxiety and depression. 


How does EMDR work?

EMDR focuses on changing the impact of distressing and or disturbing thoughts, memories, behaviors and emotions. EMDR helps process the impact of this distress, allowing the brain to move toward healing and recovery. EMDR can be used for a single experience or more complex situations such as attachment, abuse, neglect and trauma. EMDR can help clients explore their grief story which may include loss, love, and legacy. 


Does EMDR work with Children?

Absolutely! EMDR works individuals of all ages. 

EMDR can help children and process through their perceived emotional states and safety.  EMDR is often paired with play therapy, creative expression, sand play, and movement to help support children.  At Resilient Minds Counseling EMDR with children can be done in person, or through telehealth. Both approaches can help clients attain regulation, hope, and healing.


Is EMDR only done with eye movements?

No,EMDR can be conducted using taps and tones. EMDR can also be conducted using eye movements, or a combination of all three modes of Bilateral Stimulation (BLS).

EMDR is effective in person or online through telehealth for children, teens, and adults.
