Counseling of Alexandria

We offer EMDR therapy.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy

As a part of life, we all encounter stressful and difficult times.  You may have lost your job, ended a relationship with someone or experienced something fearful.  Returning from deployment, childhood traumas or negative relationships impact how we feel in the present.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy is used by specially trained psychotherapists to treat anxiety, panic, fear and depression. EMDR Therapy has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of traumatic or stressful experiences.  Counseling of Alexandria provides EMDR Therapy for both adults and children.

Overcoming these difficulties and making more room for happiness in your life is possible. Working with a therapist who has specialized training in treating all types of traumatic events is an important first step.  EMDR Therapy can help you feel better faster than traditional talk therapy alone. 

During an EMDR Therapy session, we use a standardized process to access the brain’s information processing system. This may include the use of eye movements or other forms of bilateral stimulation. Through EMDR Therapy , negative memories are re-processed by the brain in order to form a new emotion associated with the memory. You will find relief from the emotions associated with these memories, which makes a significant impact on your lives.  Contact us today to see if EMDR Therapy  is right for you or your child.
