(Accelerated Resolution Therapy)
Accelerated resolution therapy (ART) is a relatively new treatment for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). It is derived from Eye-Movement Desensitization. ART also uses relaxing back-and-forth eye movements and a process called Voluntary Memory/Image Replacement to assist people in creating new images of past trauma and change the way negative images are stored in the brain. You are in control during the session, the therapist is there to guide the process. ART is an evidence-based treatment that has been found to be effective for: PTSD, grief, codependency, depression, phobias, performance anxiety and anxiety.
During an ART session you do not need to share details of your experience if you do not want to. Your therapist guides you between scenes of your event and sensations that you experience. Many people report relief from their symptoms in 1-3 sessions. ART is an effective and safe treatment for children and adults.
I offer 60-minute ART sessions, 90-minute ART sessions, or all-day ART trauma retreats (multiple ART sessions per day). I also offer ART sessions that are combined with low-dose ketamine lozenges in order to expedite the healing process.
