I am excited to start offering Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART)! Accelerated Resolution Therapy was developed in 2008 by Laney Rosenzweig, PhD. ART uses eye movements while visualizing traumatic experiences. Then, we use imagery to replace painful images and weaken the neural networks that keep traumatic experiences active in our conscious and unconscious mind. This helps clients make profound changes to problematic behavior (eating, shopping, drugs/alcohol, pornography use, anger, insomnia) and painful emotional conditions like PTSD, anxiety and depression.
Clients are fully present and completely in control of the entire session. The best part is that it works faster than EMDR without flooding that can occur when trauma is unpacked. Changing the images also seems to help clients feel more empowered and experience decreased negative self-talk.
