EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) is determined to be an effective treatment for trauma (including acute stress and PTSD) reported by the American Psychiatric Association. It is a safe and effective technique that desensitizes feelings to a particular event or trigger. It is a strong member of the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy family, which is the most widely used evidence-based practice for treating mental health.
“The goal of EMDR is to reduce the long-lasting effects of distressing memories by engaging the brain’s natural adaptive information processing mechanisms, thereby relieving present symptoms. The therapy uses an eight-phase approach that includes having the patient recall distressing images while receiving one of several types of bilateral sensory input, such as side to side eye movements.” –

I was an athlete (runner) at the top of my game. My coach said to try some NET to take it to the next level. I wasn't sure what he meant but I trusted him. Thanks to NET sessions with Dr. Erb my stamina and running time significantly improved.
I have been trying to deal with my family for years. I just wanted some peace. I have been in traditional mental health therapy for a thousand years. I tried NET which unblocked some of my stuck feelings and thinking patterns. After just five sessions my family get togethers are just better now. Its incredible to believe that something so simple could really work.
I was a singer/actress that lost my grove. Auditions continued to go badly as my voice became unreliable. My doctor found nothing physically wrong with my throat. He referred me to NET treatment. Thru NET, Dr. Erb was able to ID a particular feeling that was causing an emotional block. Once that block was cleared it all just turned around for me. My voice came back and I feel in control again. Awesome!
I kept having these reoccurring flashbacks from my tour of duty last year. I thought these images of war would never leave me. I couldn't get a good night's sleep. I started on sleeping pills though they didn't work either. With EMDR though I was able to sleep peacefully again. I have been telling my buddies about it."
I use to be afraid of getting into the water. I think is was because I had a near drowing incident when I was 6yo. With only one session of NET with Dr. Erb, I was able to join my family in the swimming pool this year. I am not sure if I, or they, were more amazed!
Dr. Erb rocks! That's all I got to say.
Depending on ones’ goals, therapy can last a few sessions to a few years. The initial session will begin with an evaluation (biopsychosocial) and the creation of a treatment plan. The treatment plan is then evaluated every 3 months.
At each 3-month evaluation, Dr. Erb and her client will discuss the progress made and decide to continue, adjust or terminate the treatment plan. A client is never forced to stay and taking “breaks” in treatment can be therapeutic.
Fees vary based on chosen services. You may contact Dr. Erb for her fee schedule and to discuss possible payment options.
Full payment (unless other arrangements have been made) is due at time of session. Cash, checks, and most major credit cards are accepted.
