Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing

I have completed both Part 1 and Part 2 Training in EMDR and I am a Full Member of EMDRIA. I have several years of experience in EMDR therapy. I have used EMDR therapy in my practice since 2006.

  • EMDR is a method of trauma therapy in which the client is able to work through disturbing incidents with remarkable results.
  • EMDR affects the way that the brain processes information so that you no longer relive the images, sounds, smells, and feelings associated with the memory.
  • Research has shown that EMDR can provide an efficient and rapid treatment.
  • EMDR has been found to be one of the most successful treatments for trauma related disorders.

EMDR is a set of standardized protocols that incorporates elements from many different treatment approaches. To date, EMDR therapy has helped millions of people of all ages relieve many types of psychological stress.


“I am a 48 year old female who had been in therapy early in my life and had spent nearly 30 some years seeking a way to “fix” me. I was a victim of sexual abuse, physical abuse and emotional abuse from the time I can remember. I spent my entire life running, exhausted and full of fear. No one could seem to help me. I was holding on to what little I had left when I met Elisha. She is warm, caring and compassionate and she quickly put me at ease. She explained the process of EMDR and with much reservation, suspicion and doubts I began the process of truly healing. It was not easy. Nothing is when you are trying to heal from a painful past. I just knew that I’d had enough pain that whatever she was going to guide me through was going to be worth it and it WAS!!! I feel calm, peaceful, self-confident, honest, self-assured and I love myself! As I am writing this I have a tear. I never, EVER felt this way before. I never knew I would be whole again and how that would impact my life! By the grace of God, I found Elisha and EMDR and not only myself but my family too! I can now go forth and finally enjoy the rest of my life! Just Do it!!!”

“I have seen several counselors before, but never received the results I got from doing EMDR with Elisha. It has changed my life. I am not having nightmares anymore and I feel at peace with the things that have happened in my life. EMDR is amazing!” … 38 year old female

Elisha and I worked together using EMDR so I could get past some post-divorce issues.  Two years after my divorce, some areas of my life were working well, but there were other areas in which I was unable to move forward.  I appreciated the preparatory work, and clear explanation of the process.  My expectations were met and exceeded.  I benefit daily from my new reactions to situations heretofore guaranteed to cause anxiety.  My only regret is that I did not know about EMDR during my divorce process.”  … 56 year old female

“Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) has given me my life back! For years I struggled with the traumatic stress of school bullying that occurred almost twenty years ago. This process allowed me to fully process the traumatic events from long ago and even increased my confidence as an adult. Please consider this option if you have ever experienced a traumatic event. I’m a huge supporter and I hope you will consider EMDR as a treatment option.” … 33 year old male
