EMDR therapy at New York Creative Arts Therapists


Is something from your past showing up in your life as if it were still happening?


Is there something stuck from another time that is keeping you from moving forward in your life now? If so you might be a good candidate for EMDR therapy, a form of intensive trauma therapy considered a best practice intervention for treating PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). EMDR works by targeting the 'first and the worst' memories, and moving them from implicit memory, which often can either feel foggy, or like it is happening in the present, to explicit memory—this happened, it is over, and I am in the present now.  Using resource figures as well as bilateral stimulation of self-tapping or sounds to move through the memory channels.

What is EMDR therapy? Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is a mental health treatment technique. This method involves moving your eyes a specific way while you process traumatic memories. EMDR's goal is to help you heal from trauma or other distressing life experiences
