At Cornell & Associates Marriage and Family Therapy, we specialize in providing top-notch EMDR therapy to our patients right in the heart of New York, NY. We understand that life can present us with various challenges, and sometimes these challenges can leave lasting effects on our mental and emotional well-being. This is where Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy can really come into play.

At Cornell & Associates, we’re committed to helping individuals, couples, and families navigate through relational trauma and other related issues. Our team of experienced and licensed therapists are dedicated to creating a safe and trusting environment for our clients to embark on their healing journey.

What is EMDR Therapy?

EMDR therapy, also known as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy, is a powerful and effective psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven to help individuals heal from the effects of trauma. Traumatic experiences, such as abuse, accidents, or natural disasters, can profoundly impact our mental health, leading to symptoms such as anxiety, depression, and relationship difficulties.

During an EMDR therapy session, our trained therapists use bilateral stimulation techniques, such as eye movements, hand taps, or auditory cues, to access and process traumatic memories or distressing life events. This unique method allows clients to reprocess the traumatic memories, reducing their emotional intensity and facilitating healing.

At Cornell & Associates, we have witnessed the transformative power of EMDR therapy firsthand. Our therapists have received specialized training in EMDR and bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to every session, ensuring that our clients receive the highest quality of care.

Dealing with Relational Trauma

Relational trauma can be experienced in various forms, such as infidelity, emotional abuse, physical violence, or the loss of a loved one. These experiences can deeply impact individuals, couples, and families, often leading to frayed connections, cycles of conflict, and emotional distance.

At Cornell & Associates, our team truly understands the complexities and challenges that arise from relational trauma. That’s why we offer a compassionate and non-judgmental space for clients to process their feelings, explore patterns in relationships, and work towards developing healthier coping mechanisms and communication skills.

Through the application of EMDR therapy, we aim to help our clients heal the wounds of relational trauma, rebuild trust, and foster healthier personal connections. Our therapists are skilled in addressing a range of relationship issues, including but not limited to:

  • Trust and betrayal issues
  • Bullying
  • Experiencing divorce as a child
  • Emotional disconnect with caregivers
  • Sibling issues and conflict
  • Codependency
  • Attachment and abandonment issues
  • Issues with feeling alone and/or unloved
