EMDR Therapy: Understanding Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing by Timothy Meyer, LCSW, Bergen County Moms

What Is EMDR?

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a form of psychotherapy that helps people heal from traumatic events and disturbing life experiences. EMDR allows you to re-process your memories by reliving trauma in small doses and releasing negative emotions using rapid, rhythmic eye movements.

EMDR Can Help Accelerate Healing From Emotional Pain and Past Trauma

At Lukin Center, we've helped hundreds of EMDR patients find relief from deep-rooted emotional and psychological stress. Though it's a fairly new and non-traditional type of therapy, EMDR is recognized by the American Psychiatric Association, the World Health Organization and the Department of Defense as an effective treatment for trauma. Our clinicians are specially trained to incorporate EMDR into treatment, and often use this method in combination with talk therapy or medication.

Just as your body heals from an old injury, EMDR Therapy helps your brain heal naturally from traumatic events.

In this video, Dr. Lukin sits down with Timothy Meyer, LCSW to help break down EDMR and how this modality of therapy is used to identify and overcome past traumatic experiences.

Timothy Meyer, LCSW earned his B.A. in psychology from Montclair State University and his Masters degree (MSW) from Columbia University and practices at Lukin Center for Psychotherapy. Timothy specializes in working with individuals suffering from trauma/PTSD symptoms and family therapy. As an EMDRIA certified EMDR therapist, Timothy utilizes EMDR with most of his individual clients. Furthermore Timothy has gone through intensive training in the use of Structural Family Therapy (SFT) to address family difficulties. Along with EMDR and Structural Family Therapy, Timothy is also formally trained in CBT, DBT, Motivational Interviewing, and various trauma informed therapies. These trainings allow Tim to conceptualize an individual's problems through a unique, all-encompassing lens.
