Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is a proven treatment that helps people reduce or even eliminate the distress caused by traumatic memories. It is based on brain science for how memories are stored in the brain and body. Through EMDR, you can create new associations with traumatic memories to lessen the impact those memories have on your life.

During this treatment, you remain safe and in-charge as a licensed therapist guides you through recalling and re-associating your traumatic memories. Through eye movement or tapping, a therapist helps you lessen the emotional impact of stuck memories.

EMDR is primarily used to treat trauma and PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder), though some therapists may use it to treat conditions such as:

  • Fears and phobias
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Unhealthy relationship patterns
  • Panic attacks
  • Grief

Whether you are located in downtown Washington DC, Anacostia, Ballston, Bluemont, or even Brentwood, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.

The Benefits of EMDR

EMDR is an evidence-based, proven therapy with several benefits, including:

  • Reduction in symptoms of PTSD, anxiety, or depression
  • Cultivating a sense of resolution, or getting unstuck and moving on
  • Reducing fear
  • Processing events and feelings that have been hard to discuss

EMDR May Be the Right Fit For You

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing is one of many types of therapy. Though EMDR is known to be effective for PTSD, it is starting to become more widely used for treating other mental health issues. It is best to talk to a licensed therapist to see if it could work for you.
