Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)/Trauma Therapy
Fountain Hills Recovery has two psychotherapists who are specifically trained and licensed to conduct EMDR as a form of trauma therapy. EMDR is an interactive psychotherapy in which the client is encouraged briefly to focus on past traumatic events and reprocess those events in a healthy, safe environment. This method of therapy can cause further trauma if not conducted properly or if started too early in treatment. For EMDR to be beneficial, it is important that the client feels safe walking through negative experiences and give themselves adequate time to reprocess.
