EMDR Therapy

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing

At arKardia Counseling & Consulting, EMDR therapy includes the client and a licensed therapist or psychologist with specialized training. Sessions are held weekly or bi-weekly lasting 50 minutes or more each.

EMDR is a type of therapy used to heal symptoms of trauma and other painful
life events. This method of therapy uses side to side eye movements (and/or sound or tactile repetitions) in order to facilitate the brain’s natural healing ability. In short, the brain is able to safely reprocess disturbing information until there is a peaceful resolution.

EMDR provides insight and relief in a short amount of time.

EMDR therapy can be helpful for children, adolescents and adults. EMDR therapy may help you with:
  • panic attacks or phobias
  • performance anxiety
  • depression
  • assaults in any form
  • post-traumatic stress
  • trauma
  • violence or abuse
  • grief and loss
  • chronic illness or medical issues
  • relational difficulties
