NOTE ON THIS PHOTO – “When I saw this picture, it reminded me of how I felt when I woke up on the first morning after receiving EMDR as a client.  For 15-years, I had experienced flashbacks to bullying I experienced in high school on a near-daily basis.  I had tried multiple therapy modalities, including CBT, talk therapy, even hypnosis, and had made my peace with the fact that I would be carrying this pain indefinitely.  Then, after EMDR, it was like I could see the storm that I had been stuck under moving on without me, as the sun started to shine down.  I hope we get the chance to help you find the same relief.” — Luke Robbins, Provider of EMDR, and real-life EMDR client


Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a research-validated, evidence-based integrative psychotherapy approach, shown to be effective for the treatment of many mental health conditions, including PTSD, anxiety, depression, OCD, chronic pain, addictions, compulsions, low self-esteem, low motivation, and other distressing life experiences.

EMDR consists of 8 phases of treatment, with the goal of helping clients to process memories, experiences, and “lessons” from the past that may be associated with current symptoms or problems in the life now, such as self esteem issues, PTSD symptoms, phobic reactions, anxiety, and more.  

EMDR was originally discovered in the late 1980s by Dr. Francine Shapiro, Ph.D.  Since then, EMDR has been recognized as an effective therapy modality by the American Psychiatric Association, the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (USVA) and the Department of Defense (USDOD), the United Kingdom’s National Institute for Health Care and Excellence (NICE), and the World Health Organizations (WHO), and other global health organizations.
