EMDR Therapy in Northbrook

Healing through eye movement

Our licensed therapists use EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) to help clients process and move past traumatic events, negative beliefs and intense emotions.

“I suffered from PTSD for years. EMDR was instrumental in helping me process the trauma and begin getting back to myself.”

— Emily, after 10 weeks

What is EMDR Therapy?

EMDR uses bilateral stimulation like eye movements or taps to help you process traumatic memories. This drug-free, evidence-based therapy relieves PTSD, anxiety, depression and other mental health conditions by activating the brain’s innate healing abilities. 

How EMDR works

The rhythmic left-right visual or auditory stimulation of EMDR unlocks traumatic memories stored in the brain. This activation process creates new connections between these disturbances and healthy coping, allowing distressing events to finally flow out. 

Conditions EMDR 
can treat:

  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Depression
  • Grief and Loss
  • Addiction
  • Chronic Pain
  • Eating Disorders
  • Anxiety
  • Phobias
  • Panic Attacks
  • Performance Anxiety
  • Stress Reduction
  • Self-Esteem Issues
