EMDR is a highly effective modality that has proven successful in processing past trauma. Because EMDR is a powerful tool, it is not appropriate for everyone as it can result in an exacerbation of symptoms. Before beginning EMDR for the purpose of processing trauma, ITTC clinicians assess for appropriateness to ensure safety.
Prior to engagement in EMDR, there are several steps to take, which can be implemented by any clinician. Therefore, your primary clinician will not be assigned based on an EMDR specialization, but other criteria that we assess for utilizing our website intake request form.
If you’re primary clinician does not utilize EMDR and it is a modality deemed appropriate for your treatment goals, once you are ready to engage in EMDR, you will be transferred to an EMDR trained clinician to engage in the process.
