Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing

Repeated studies show that by using EMDR therapy people can experience the benefits of psychotherapy that once took years to make a difference.

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences and traumas of all kinds.

It is widely assumed that severe emotional pain requires a long time to heal.  EMDR therapy shows that the mind can in fact heal from psychological trauma much as the body recovers from physical trauma.  

The brain’s information processing system naturally moves toward mental health.  If the system is blocked or imbalanced by the impact of a disturbing event, the emotional wound festers and can cause intense suffering.  Once the block is removed, healing resumes.  Using the detailed protocols and procedures learned in EMDR therapy training sessions, clinicians help clients activate their natural healing processes.

“Working with Lainie over the past 7 months has been an incredible experience!! I believe strongly in a holistic approach to one’s health and well-being. Over the past 15 years, I have worked with many different types of professionals including: physical therapists, psychologists, ministers, career counselors, massage and energy therapists, physicians and chiropractors, striving to move towards optimal health and happiness in all aspects of my life. While all have contributed to my life, none have had Lainie’s breadth of knowledge and skill for integrating the whole person.
