What is EMDR?

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences.

Is Your Staff Trained in EMDR?

Dr. Gerber is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and is trained in EMDR therapy. 

How Does it Work? 

In the Rapid Eye Movement portion, the client focuses on a troubling memory and identifies the belief they have about themself connected to this negative memory. The individual then formulates a positive belief that they would like to have about themself. All the physical sensations and emotions that accompany the memory are identified. The individual then goes over the memory while focusing on an external stimulus that creates bilateral (side to side) eye movement.  After each set of bilateral movements, the individual is asked how they feel. This process continues until the memory is no longer disturbing.

Further Questions....

Please contact Dr. Gerber for further questions and clarification. 

What should I expect?

You will likely experience shifts in body sensations, insight, or changes in images, feelings, or belief(s) regarding the event being targeted with EMDR therapy.
