Phoenix Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Treatment

“Changing the memories that form the way we see ourselves also changes the way we view others. Therefore, our relationships, job performance, what we are willing to do or are able to resist, all move in a positive direction.” 
― Francine Shapiro

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a form of psychotherapy that was developed by Francine Shapiro in 1987 to help patients heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are caused by traumatic life experiences. EMDR therapy shows that the mind can in fact heal psychological trauma much like our body recovers from physical injuries.

About Ahwatukee Foothills EMDR Therapy

EMDR therapy is a phased, focused approach to treating trauma, anxiety, panic disorders and other symptoms by reconnecting the client in a safe and measured way. Images, self-thoughts, emotions, and body sensations associated with the trauma are utilized, allowing the natural healing powers of the brain to move toward an adaptive resolution. Phoenix EMDR therapy is based on the idea that symptoms occur when trauma and other negative/challenging experiences overwhelm the brain’s natural ability to heal. We believe that the healing process can be facilitated and completed through bilateral stimulation while the client is re-processing the trauma in the safe environment of our office.
