Therapy Austin


Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is different from “talk therapy” in that it changes how distressing experiences are stored in the brain. By “processing” these experiences, distressing emotions, beliefs, and body sensations are reduced and what is useful from the experience is learned and retained. It is a top-choice therapy to heal from trauma, abuse, anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem. EMDR can also help improve future performance in relationships, work, school, and life.

This model is congruent with strengths-based views that our minds have a natural capacity to process what happens to us in a healthy and resilient way. But, that process can be short-circuited by significantly stressful experiences. EMDR works by stimulating the brain in ways that reinstate the resilient circuitry and reduce or “desensitize” the emotional charge which have lead to ongoing pain or suffering. The goal of each EMDR session is to neutralize the triggers and lasting-effects that some people suffer with after a significantly stressful experience. Difficult situations will likely become less upsetting.

This form of treatment has decades of valid research proving its effectiveness and is used to treat not only PTSD, but also all types of anxiety, traumatic events, and disorders, depression, panic, and pain, to name a few.
