Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

Tatiana Matthews, LPC, is trained in eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, an evidence-based technique shown to effectively reduce symptoms of:

  • Trauma
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Addiction
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Phobias
  • And more

Regardless of your past or current experiences, EMDR has been shown to relieve psychological stress. It can also help enhance your performance in your career, physical activity, and the arts. 

EMDR has been used to help more than 2 million people worldwide. The goal of EMDR therapy is to “process completely the experiences that are causing problems, and to include new ones that are needed for full health.” (EMDR International Association)

One aspect through which EMDR retrains the brain is by bilateral stimulation that re-associates negative memories or associations with alternative positive or neutral images or thoughts. Attention is removed and retrained away from the negative memory or emotion, helping to weaken it, and teaching practical coping skills for the times when you need them.

For a compassionate, practical therapist trained in EMDR and other evidence-based therapies, call Tatiana Matthews in Alpharetta, Georgia at (770) 815-6853, or request an appointment online.
