Lisa Stull has been using EMDR since 1995 and is Level II trained. She has been successful in treating clients with a variety of issues and decreasing the severity of their symptoms.
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is an information processing therapy, which uses an eight-phase approach that was developed by Dr. Francine Shapiro. It directly effects the way brain processes information by decreasing the severity of negative emotions attached to disturbing situations. When your perspective on the event changes, your feelings change which in turn changes your behavior. EMDR is a psychotherapy technique that should be used in conjunction with an integrated treatment plan designed by an experienced clinician.
Please visit the EMDR Institute and the EMDR International Association for a more in depth definition and studies regarding the success of clients using EMDR. EMDR is successful in treating a wide range of issues including anxiety, trauma, grief, pain, substance abuse/dependence, and is also used for enhancing strengths and athletic performance.
