Dr. Francine Shapiro - Founder of EMDR Therapy
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is an evidence-based psychotherapy approach designed to help individuals process and heal from distressing memories and past traumas. Developed by Dr. Francine Shapiro in the 1980's, EMDR has gained recognition as an effective treatment for various mental health challenges.
EMDR is a comprehensive and structured therapeutic technique that focuses on helping individuals process unresolved traumatic experiences. It incorporates bilateral stimulation, typically achieved through eye movements, to facilitate the brain's natural healing process. By targeting distressing memories and reducing their emotional charge, EMDR allows individuals to gain new insights and perspectives, leading to lasting emotional relief and behavioral change.
Our EMDR sessions are tailored to each individual's unique needs and therapeutic goals. The EMDR therapists at Osage Valley Counseling are extensively trained on the 8 Phase Protocol of EMDR Therapy and adheres to EMDRIA (EMDR International Association) standards of care, ensuring a comprehensive and safe healing experience.
EMDR therapy offers a transformative and evidence-based approach to address emotional wounds of the past and trauma-related conditions; however, it has proven effective in treating a wide range of mental health challenges:
