Accelerated Resolution Therapy

Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) is a unique approach to psychotherapy. ART is unique because the ART Therapist guides the client to replace the negative images in the mind that cause the symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress with positive images of the client’s choosing. It may be an effective intervention for trauma, depression, and other mental health concerns. ART uses eye movements aimed to help quickly alleviate symptoms, which are often related to past trauma.

Accelerated Resolution Therapy is a quick and effective way to create lasting change. ART does not require you to talk about your painful past in order to heal from it. You, the Client, are in control of what is happening in session. Accelerated Resolution Therapy is an innovated approach building off of EMDR and combining a multitude of traditional psychotherapeutic techniques utilized in... Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Gestalt, Brief Psychodynamic, Exposure, and CBT.

Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) guides the client to replace the negative images in the mind that cause the symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress with positive images of the client’s choosing. And this is done quickly, most often within one session! Once the negative images have been replaced by positive ones, the triggers will be gone. Nightmares and repeated intrusive thoughts will stop.

Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) is an integrated, somatic trauma-focused psychotherapy that uses eye movements and voluntary image replacement for rapid relief and recovery from distressing images and difficult sensations. Many folks really like ART because it does not require discussing trauma details and the process itself is calming. It's generally very effective in treating trauma (one-time incidents or complex trauma), anxiety, depression, phobias, grief issues and more.

I'm a Master-level trained practitioner. I LOVE this modality. Clients like it as it's creative and doesn't require you to verbalize the trauma.

This is an evidenced-based form of psychotherapy that utilizes back and forth eye movements to help clients address common problems such as depression, anxiety, phobias and PTSD. During ART sessions, may find that you connect pieces of information that are already stored in your memory to help you resolve your issues. The brain, while focused on a problem and concurrently using eye movements, makes new connections with a person’s strengths and problem solving abilities.

Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) is a quick and effective way to overcome emotional triggers without rehashing painful details. Using eye movements and evidence-based techniques, ART lightens the emotional burden of trauma. In a visualized setting, I guide your brain and body toward healing, enabling you to release negative emotions quietly. Gain control and heal on your terms, often in just 1-5 sessions. Imagine lifting that emotional weight and feeling the positive changes within you.

I am a Master ART (accelerated resolution therapy) Practitioner. I work with individuals to help them heal from trauma, anxiety, depression, PTSD, etc. Clients are in control of sessions and keep the facts of what happened to them. Through a guided process that includes eye movements they are able to change images/alter painful memories and also reduce triggers and improve body sensations so that healing can occur from many painful memories and prior hurts.
