EMDR is appropriate for adults as well as adolescents and children. Although EMDR is traditionally used to treat trauma, anyone can benefit from EMDR therapy.
It could be, “I’m not good enough,” or “I am not safe,” etc. These negative beliefs affect how people look at their lives and how they interact with others.
Maintaining confidentiality is one of the many responsibilities psychotherapists have to protect our clients so we are not able to share much of what we do for work with anyone. People often will guess what we do, but are never given the full picture. We found this article and share it with loved ones so they could see what we have the honor of witnessing on a regular basis with our clients. Please read with caution as the writer shares his own traumatic life experience.
EMDR is based on a theory that suggests when a person finds themselves to feel “stuck”, the left and right sides of the brain no longer communicate around the negative belief, making it harder for some traditional therapies to have an effect.
By stimulating both the left and right side of the brain, while a therapist guides a client through recalling a disturbing experience, allows for reprocessing and healing to take place.
Bilateral stimulation can occur using eye movements, following a therapist’s fingers from left to right, watching a light from one eye to the other, listening to sounds from one ear to the other, or using a tapping method.
This is because bilateral stimulation helps clients to rapidly get “unstuck” and complete the processing of a memory or fear so healing and growth can take place.
Due to EMDR relying on processing happening in the brain, less talking is required than in other forms of therapy.

Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services. You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees. Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service by contacting email@example.com. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises
