DBR Therapy & EMDR Therapy

What is DBR Therapy?

DBR stands for Deep Brain Reorienting, a somatic/brain-based therapy, developed by Frank Corrigan, PhD.

You can read more about DBR on the official website (until I have a more succinct way of explaining this powerful and trauma-informed treatment modality):


What exactly is EMDR?

o Besides being a total game changer in my practice (with both adults and children), EMDR therapy is a type of psychotherapy that helps people unlock their true potential (sounds corny but it’s true!) – by reducing their emotional distress, and interrupting the cycle of repeating negative patterns.

Some details about EMDR Therapy:

It’s efficient! For many clients, EMDR therapy is quicker and more efficient than standard talk therapy.

It works! EMDR therapy has a proven track record in treating those who have experienced trauma, and is recommended by the World Health Organization, the American Psychological Association, and the American Psychiatric Organization.

It follows a standardized protocol, while at the same time catering to the individuality of each client.

EMDR therapy uses eye movements, tapping, or auditory tones, bilaterally, to engage both sides of the brain, to help us to move into a more adaptive way of remembering, feeling, thinking, and being.

EMDR Therapy may be used for:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Behavioral challenges
  • Loss and Grief
  • Stress
  • PTSD
  • Childhood trauma/loss/attachment wounds

Oh, and if you were wondering… EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, and was discovered and developed by Francine Shapiro in 1987! If you’d like to learn more about EMDR, check out the video below:
