EMDR Therapy for Children

A walk in the park by Francine Shapiro helped change the game for those who have experienced trauma, even children. She realized that that eye movements appeared to decrease the negative emotions she was experiencing from her own distressing memories. From her continued research, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) was born. 

EMDR is a specialized form of therapy used most commonly to help resolve trauma or repressed memories that are causing distress. It has been heavily researched and requires an extensive training & certification process in order to be used by therapists. By navigating 8 different phases of treatment with our certified EMDR provider, children are able to resolve post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms and find closure.
