Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART)

Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) is an evidence-based form of  cognitive psychotherapy that utilizes back and forth eye movements to help clients address common problems such as anxiety, phobias and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The method encourages rapid recovery by reprogramming how the brain stores traumatic memories. It is not the same as EMDR, however, both use eye movements. 

In experiencing ART, you may find that you connect pieces of information that are already stored in your memory to help you resolve issues. This approach provides effective relief from the strong physical and emotional reactions associated with post-traumatic stress, trauma, anxiety, depression and performance, in as few as 1-5 sessions. 

ART is SAMSHA and NREPP recognized as an evidence based treatment for psychological trauma and depression. See this page for research and case studies:
