EMDR: Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, Article by Ann Muntter

“I am passionate about facilitating healing and self awareness with my clients. As a clinical social worker for over 25 years, I see it as an art and a science to work with people on healing their pain and problems. The art is listening and helping them to figure out what influences have affected them to be in their current situation which often is not as simple to figure out as one may think. The science is with the therapies I offer to aide in the healing process. There is an art to the application of the therapies I use as well. The therapies I most often use to help clients achieve their goals include Developmental, Psychodynamic, Internal Family Systems, Cognitive Behavioral, EMDR, Brief Solution Focused, Emotional Freedom Technique, Dream Analysis, and Education."
