Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy is a treatment option offered by Ashley Kiker to help individuals cope with Anxiety, Depression, Panic, Post-traumatic stress disorder, or Trauma.  

 

According to the EMDR International Association, "EMDR therapy does not require talking in detail about the distressing issue or
completing homework between sessions. EMDR therapy, rather than focusing on changing the emotions, thoughts, or behaviors resulting from the distressing issue, allows the brain to resume its natural healing process. For many clients, EMDR therapy can be completed in fewer sessions than other psychotherapies."

  • Anxiety, panic attacks, and phobias 

  • Chronic Illness and medical issues
