EMDR Therapy

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing or EMDR is a therapeutic intervention developed by Dr. Francine Shapiro in the late 1980s to treat Post Traumatic Stress Disorders (PTSD).  It is an extensively researched and effective intervention designed to activate the natural self-healing process of the brain.  EMDR is unique in that it does not require talking in detail about the distressing event as in other therapy approaches.  With EMDR traumatic memories can also be resolved within very few sessions as compared to other psychotherapies.

If you have been exposed to a catastrophic event, have experienced violence, abuse, serious illness, or the death of a loved one, you might notice increased anxiety, depressive symptoms, sleeping disorders, physiological discomfort, feelings of hopelessness, and irrational beliefs about yourself or others…Then EMDR may be right for you!

CBT Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a very well researched and evidence based, solution focused form of psychological treatment. It is very effective in the treatment of various mental health issues including depression, PTSD, anxiety disorders, phobias, obsessive compulsive disorder, substance abuse, marital problems, eating disorders and even more severe mental illnesses.

CBT works on the basis that the way we think and interpret life events affects how we behave and ultimately feel. In CBT the client and the therapist work together collaboratively to develop an understanding of the problem and to then develop a treatment plan. CBT can be an effective tool to help anyone learn how to better manage stressful life situations, grow and heal.
