    Accelerated Resolution Therapy

    What is Accelerated Resolution Therapy?

    Accelerated Resolution Therapy, often referred to as ART, is an evidence-based practice more commonly known for using bilateral eye movements to treat symptoms of post-traumatic stress.

    ART is an exposure–based cognitive psychotherapy that provides rapid recovery by reprogramming how the brain stores traumatic memories and imagery. This approach provides effective relief from the strong physical and emotional reactions associated with post-traumatic stress (PTSD), trauma, anxiety, depression and more, in as few as 1-5 sessions.

    The best and most unique trait about this trauma therapy approach is that you don’t have to verbally process it! Oftentimes trauma can bring on negative feelings of shame and guilt, which makes using ART a gentle, less invasive approach to trauma treatment.

    More than just trauma therapy!

    Accelerated Resolution Therapy is commonly known for treating and dissolving post-trauma stress symptoms, but it can also be used to treat:

    • Substance use / addiction
    • Eating disorders 
    • Anxiety / fear / phobias
    • OCD
    • Depression / Grief
    • Sleep problems
    • Memory enhancement
    • Self-esteem 
    • Motivation
    • & more!

    Our 3-Tiered Approach to ART

    We recommend the following treatment format when using an ART technique, which breaks down into 3 sessions as outlined below-

    1. Planning Session: Review trauma history, assess present PTS symptoms, and decide on your scene for the ART session. (Telehealth)

    2. ART Session: dissolve your scene and PTS symptoms in the ART session using eye-movement desensitization techniques. (in-person session)

    3. Post Session: Reassess PTS symptoms, process repressed memories that may have surfaced after the ART session, and discuss follow up treatment recommendations with your counselor. (Telehealth session)

    ART Testimonials

    “Nearly a year has passed since my first ART session and the impact it has had on my life is truly incredible. Before ART I was holding so much trauma in my body, never realizing the symptoms I was exhibiting were linked. My body was fatigued, under constant stress, and I couldn’t understand why. When ART was recommended, I approached it with skepticism, but I was willing to explore anything that might alleviate my pain. After the first session, I recognized its power. I have had five sessions in the past year and they have changed me on a subconscious level. I no longer struggle with social anxiety, react strongly to loud noises, or fear public speaking. What I once considered as mere personality quirks turned out to be symptoms of a deeper issue. ART, in conjunction with trauma therapy, has transformed my life.”
