What is EMDR?
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy 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.
I am a trauma therapist working in Wilmington, NC. My trauma clients have suffered injuries as seemingly benign as childhood messages from family and friends to the obviously traumatizing sexual and emotional abuse. Yet, each trauma carries with it a negative perception of self and the world. No matter how small one’s trauma, it carries a big toll. I can help reprocess the trauma so those memories lose their power.
