EMDR AND ART
WHAT ARE EMDR & ART
Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) is an integrative psychotherapy approach and can be completed in fewer sessions than other therapy modalities. EMDR has been heavily researched and proven effective for treatment of trauma. EMDR is an evidence-based treatment.
Patty obtained her training in EMDR through an EMDRIA approved consulting group. She provides EMDR treatment online after an assessment has been completed to ensure a good fit for online work.
"How is EMDR different from other therapies? EMDR therapy does not require talking in detail about the distressing issue or completing homework between sessions. EMDR therapy, rather than focusing on changing the emotions, thoughts, or behaviors resulting from the distressing issue, allows the brain to resume its natural healing process.
EMDR therapy is designed to resolve unprocessed traumatic memories in the brain. For many clients, EMDR therapy can be completed in fewer sessions than other psychotherapies."
Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) is an evidence-based from of psychotherapy that utilizes back and forth eye movements to help clients address common problems such as depression, anxiety, phobias and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). It is not the same as EMDR, however they both use eye movements. In experiencing ART, you may find that you connect pieces of information that are already stored in your memory to help you resolve your issues. The brain, while focused on a problem and concurrently using eye movements, makes new connections with a person's strengths and problem solving abilities. More about ART here. Patty is trained in ART therapy and listed on the ART therapist's website.
