What is EMDR and How Does it Work?

Eye Movement desensitization and reprocessing. Sounds fancy, but it’s actually pretty natural to our brains. For example, without a calculator or any paper, use mental math to do this problem: 12 x 24 = … 

What do you notice as you’re trying to figure this out? Your eyes are probably looking for the answer, right? This is a great illustration of how eye movement is connected with brain activity. EMDR takes advantage of the connection between the brain and the eyes to help the brain digest traumatic events and situations.

About Noell DiBella

Noell has an affinity for working with adults who have experienced childhood trauma and are still experiencing the effects of that trauma. She also has a passion for working with adult individuals who are experiencing depression, anxiety, stress, and attachment related relationships issues, such as codependency, difficulty dating/forming relationships/friendships. Her passion for the counseling field began when her fourth grade school counselor selected her to be a peer mediator. This opportunity proved to be an “Aha” moment for Noell; having grown up in a high-conflict family, Noell became infatuated with the concept that conflict doesn’t have to persist; it can be managed, if not resolved. At the ripe age of 10 years old, Noell’s life path was laid before her.
