Providing counseling in Northwest Arkansas, Dr. Ryan Martin and Jannie Cole, LPC have experience treating clients who have experienced trauma in their lives through EMDR Therapy. EMDR Therapy is treatment provided to assist individuals to address past emotional-charged experiences that overly influence present emotions, sensations, and thoughts about oneself. EMDR focuses on the brain’s ability to constantly learn, taking past experiences, and updating them with present information.
EMDR uses a set of procedures to organize negative and positive feelings, emotions, and beliefs, and then uses bilateral stimulation, such as eye movements or alternating tapping, as the way to help one effectively work through those disturbing memories.
EMDR has shown to be effective in treating PTSD and other related symptoms.
