EMDR Therapy

Find healing for trauma, anxiety, and more with EMDR Therapy from a licensed psychotherapist in Massachusetts.

Schedule Appointment

EMDR is a structured therapy that encourages the patient to briefly focus on the trauma memory while simultaneously experiencing bilateral stimulation (typically eye movements), which is associated with a reduction in the vividness and emotion associated with the trauma memories. 

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an extensively researched, effective psychotherapy method proven to help people recover from trauma and PTSD symptoms. Ongoing research supports positive clinical outcomes showing EMDR therapy as a helpful treatment for disorders such as anxiety, depression, OCD, chronic pain, addictions, and other distressing life experiences.

How EMDR Can Help You Heal 

EMDR helps the person process a past event so that it is stored as a memory that no longer feels like it is being re-lived but feels like it is part of the past. The person won’t lose the memory, but its disturbance level will be greatly reduced.

EMDR is often used a mental health treatment method for trauma, but it can help with a wide range of conditions including: 

  • Anxiety, panic attacks, and phobias
  • Chronic Illness and medical issues
  • Depression and bipolar disorders
  • Grief and loss
  • Pain
  • Performance anxiety
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and other trauma and stress-related issues
  • Sexual assault
  • Sleep disturbance
  • Substance abuse and addiction
