Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing Trauma Therapy Helps Lancaster Community in Crisis

LANCASTER, PA – Crisis can affect anyone at any time and may leave long term emotional scars. The most common crises include grief or trauma over lost loved ones, PTSD related to an act of violence, panic disorders, and anxiety resulting from negative marital or family interactions. Fortunately, scientific therapies have been developed in recent years that are proven effective for treating a multitude of emotional problems.

One of the newest therapies available is Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing Trauma Therapy, known more commonly as EMDR Therapy. It has been proven to be one of the most effective treatment methods for trauma. Additionally, the practice  of EMDR can work with individual clients, couples, or within a  group to help those who have collectively faced trauma, such as a mass shooting.

Sun Point Wellness is pleased to announce they have a full team of qualified and certified therapists who are trained in EMDR. The positive response from clients has been impressive, and there are plans in place to have approximately one-half of the center’s practice trained in this particular therapy by September.

The Sun Point Wellness current leading members trained in EMDR include:

• Executive Director: Laura Morse, M.ED, LPC – Certified Therapist, Gottman Level 3 Couples Therapist

• Executive Director of Clinical Services: Breesha Comish, MS, LMFT

• Director of Pro Bono and Sliding Scale Services, Shadena Natty, BA,MS,CAADC,MA, LPC Primary Therapist

• Registered Primary Therapist Yanina Marti, MSW, LCSW, CCTP, RPT

“Our clients have found EMDR therapy to be exceptionally helpful,” said Laura Morse, Executive Director of Sun Point Wellness. “The therapy tracks eye movement and helps the client reprocess inner thoughts and come to terms with their trauma, making vital strides towards healing.”

EMDR therapy does not require sharing details about the distressing issue during a session. For many clients, this therapy can be helpful immediately and is completed in fewer sessions than other types of talk therapy and counseling.

G-TEP (Group Traumatic Episode Protocol) and R-TEP (Recent Traumatic Episode) EMDR  therapy is offered at the center, as well. It pairs a bilateral movement, a left-right motion of the eyes, while reflecting on the trauma. This therapy allows the brain to form new, adaptive reactions. The upsetting experience is still remembered, but the anxiety, panic or paralyzing response from the original event is resolved.

Sun Point Wellness Center is a full service therapy practice offering G-TEP and R-TEP EMDR therapy. Their therapists are also trained in everything from child therapy to marriage counseling.
