EMDR Therapy at Healthpartners
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an evidence-based treatment for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). It uses back-and-forth eye movements to stimulate the brain, reduce stress, and promote cognitive reorganization – helping patients conquer trauma-related emotions and symptoms.
Health Partners takes a holistic, solution-focused approach in all of our sessions. This means we work on recognizing resources and strengths you already possess while challenging thoughts or behaviors that might be keeping you stuck.
This approach also assists you in understanding that your thoughts and behaviors may be shaped by what others say or do around you, rather than being determined by an event in isolation. This enables you to be more open and honest about your emotions, which in turn helps improve relationships with those around you.
Healthpartners offers EMDR therapy to clients suffering from PTSD or other forms of emotional distress. This effective and brief method helps reprocess traumatic experiences that may be difficult to cope with in daily life.
EMDR is an effective form of trauma treatment because it allows you to reframe painful memories and reduce negative symptoms such as hyper arousal, anxiety, and mood swings. This works by stimulating the brain with back and forth eye movements while recalling a traumatic memory; this helps free your body from its emotional charges associated with that event.
Working with a therapist who is unfamiliar with your issues can be daunting, so it’s essential to find someone who can explain how the treatment works and provide options tailored specifically to you. Our team has extensive expertise in trauma therapies and can assist you in selecting the one most suitable for you.
