What is EMDR ?
Take steps to a better life now
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a therapeutic process which will clear troubling emotions and negative thinking linked to trauma and other painful past experiences. Some people have said that EMDR helped them more in one session than other therapies had in years.
Enjoy your life now. Don't wait.
EMDR is a SHORT-TERM therapy. During an EMDR session the patient combines the focusing on a memory and moving one's eyes while following the therapist's fingers or an object that is used to focus on. As the session begins you will be aware of the feelings and thoughts connected to the memory while simultaneously making the rapid eye movements. As the process starts, your perception of the traumatic memory will begin to change. It can become more complete, with an increase in the emotional content or intensity. Or the memory may fade. Regardless of how EMDR proceeds, the unpleasant feelings and negative thinking fade and are replaced by more positive feelings and thoughts.
When the process is completed you will remember the event. Understand and know that it happened but will no longer be "haunted" by it or disturbed by the memory. This then changes the way you view other parts of your lives.
As an investigative producer for network television,
it was second nature to examine everything--the old and the new--with
fervent skepticism. It's not surprising, then, that I screened a taped
interview, shot for an ABC News, 20/20 segment investigating a little-known
therapy treatment called EMDR, with a fair dose of cynicism. Little did
I know, I would become an strong advocate of EMDR a decade later.

He has a no nonsense approach however his relaxed and easy going nature elicits a comfort level with clients immediately. His expertise in EMDR and one on one therapy leads to positive and lasting results in a short period of time. I believe that Barry's expertise and personality creates a therapeutic environment that is conducive to healing.
