Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy serves as a potent tool for liberating entrenched memories, traumas, or negative beliefs from the past that cast a shadow on one’s present well-being. Through EMDR, individuals gain insight into which aspects of their experiences hold value and which to release.This therapy’s credibility is founded on empirical evidence, as it has been rigorously researched and proven to be an effective treatment modality.

Initiating therapeutic exploration can be a daunting endeavor, particularly when deciding on the most fitting approach. Below, you’ll find frequently asked questions to guide your assessment of whether EMDR aligns with your needs.

Who can benefit from EMDR?
While EMDR research largely concentrates on traumatic encounters, its positive impact extends beyond to a wide range of mental health conditions and life occurrences. At Hudson Mental Wellness, EMDR aids in addressing anxiety, depression, codependency, anxious/avoidant attachment styles, and traumatic incidents.

How does EMDR work?
EMDR targets core negative self-perceptions shaped by life experiences. In EMDR, you engage in revisiting challenging memories while undergoing bilateral stimulation. Our telehealth sessions at Hudson Mental Wellness employ bilateral tapping, fostering communication between both brain hemispheres. This process facilitates the release of stagnant memories, often leading to spontaneous insights and the establishment of fresh, positive self-beliefs.

Can other therapies complement EMDR?
Certainly! Hudson Mental Wellness combines Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy with EMDR. IFS, another evidence-based therapy, delves into different facets of the self influenced by life events. The synergy of EMDR and IFS grants deeper comprehension of wounded aspects and guides them towards healing.

What’s the duration of EMDR treatment?
The timeline for EMDR treatment varies. Individuals with isolated trauma experiences may find healing in a few sessions. Conversely, complex traumas necessitate extended treatment. During a free 15-minute phone consultation, we can gauge whether EMDR therapy aligns with your needs and provide an estimated treatment duration.

What’s the cost of EMDR?
EMDR sessions are priced at $200 each. Hudson Mental Wellness doesn’t directly collaborate with insurance providers. If your insurance covers out-of-network therapy, we can furnish a superbill for reimbursement.
