Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma.
It helps to reduce anxiety, panic attacks, lessen distressing memories associated with PTSD. As troubling images and feelings are processed by the brain via the eye movement patterns of EMDR, resolution of the issues and a less disturbing and more peaceful state are achieved.
EMDR therapy includes a set of standardized protocols that incorporate elements from many different treatment approaches. Founded in evidenced based research, EMDR is a time efficient form of therapy, and helps to process the traumatic event, while reducing the emotional intensity and pain, and create healing while in a safe and supportive space.
“Karyn has an incredibly comforting presence. I have loved sharing happy moments with her and I am also incredibly grateful that she has been there to support me during more challenging times. She is thoughtful, kind & knowledgeable. She truly listens and she deeply cares. Having someone like Karyn to support me during my personal mental health journey has been a true gift.”
“Karyn worked with my middle school-aged son. She taught him strategies to relieve stress and helped him understand how to cope with unresolved grief. Her approach is non-threatening, empathetic, and understanding. My son felt very comfortable talking with her and benefited greatly from their discussions.”
