Message to clients

Do you worry that you will be stuck experiencing symptoms of anxiety, trauma, or generally feeling unlike your true self for years to come? What if I told you that even the worst memories and anxiety symptoms can dissipate and/or even be ameliorated by simply watching and following my fingers? Eye Movement Desentisization Reprocessing (EMDR) engages your brain in bilateral stimulation, leading to natural brain restoration, adaptive resolution, and decreased emotional charges, while replacing maladaptive emotions with positive ones. Using a fast-track approach, I treat anxiety, phobias, trauma, and self-esteem issues in half the time that traditional therapy can take. I incorporate aspects of EMDR, EFT, and subconscious reprogramming to help your mind create new and healthy associations In as little as 3-6 sessions. In some cases, extra treatment may be required depending on how deeply-rooted these issues and memories are. Perinatal mood disorders, relationship issues, and low self-esteem levels can also be treated in a more rapid manner. All of my sessions are offered virtually, so you get the same level of support from the comfort of your couch, instead of mine. If this sounds like something you may be interested in, feel free to schedule a complimentary 10-minute consultation with me to learn more about how you can finally start experiencing the freedom you deserve!
