Services > EMDR Therapy

Eye Movement and Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an evidence-based and highly effective way to treat Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and many other issues including anxiety, panic, depression, attachment issues, and more. It can also be used to improve relaxation and mindfulness skills.

Often we are stuck because we are living with coping strategies we developed at an earlier time in life. As our life changes, these old patterns stick with us even when we don’t need them anymore.

We also tend to hold onto old messages about our worth, competence, needs, and value. Some of these were actually told to us, others we interpreted. For example, many clients find they have developed a sense of not being “good enough.”

EMDR allows us to rewrite the script and undo stubbornly held patterns. It’s a remarkable tool that has helped many people be freed up from the past to enjoy a more fulfilling life.

“I couldn’t get past my feelings of unworthiness and Hannah suggested EMDR… EMDR helped to open up my blocked pattern of thinking.  It changed the “tape” in my head.”

EMDR therapy is provided by Hannah Curtis, LCSW, who has been trained and actively using the modality for 10 years.
