Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a form of therapy that helps individuals heal from trauma or other distressing life experiences. EMDR therapy has been extensively researched and has demonstrated effectiveness for trauma.
EMDR therapy at D2Counseling is the therapy of choice for trauma events. Trauma can be big and loud and bold (like soldiers and shooting) but trauma also includes slow drip verbal meanness that barely goes noticed in the moment. In hindsight, there are no physical scars, but the emotional wounding is just as impactful. EMDR therapy heals both.
