Has faulty “wiring” tricked your brain into believing negative thoughts? Without intervention this dangerous short circuitry results in false messages that, for some, come to life as one’s condemning truths. Whether you have a history of major traumas or you are presently plagued with a deeply distressing or disturbing experience, EMDR therapy is highly effective and efficient with resolution within 8 or less, 2-hour sessions called “intensives.”  You are a good candidate for EMDR therapy if you are reliving a life threatening or terrifying event instead of remembering it.

Hearing firsthand the successes of those treated with Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing [EMDR] by a colleague, it changed how I view and now provide therapy. Clients often lack words to express disturbing memories resulting in less effective outcomes with traditional talk therapy. My clients report tremendous restorative benefit and regained balance after EMDR therapy.

Learn more about EMDR through the Institute’s Frequently Asked Questions at FAQs.  Refer to EMDRIA for international research and resources.

I am a practical problem-solver with instinctual optimism buoyed by strong faith. I have built deeply connected relationships throughout my life and gained profound wisdom through life’s unexpected challenges. All these create my unique ability to serve, connect and walk with people striving for transformation.

With over 25 years of mental health clinical experience in acute crisis stabilization, my work remains rewarding. My intuitive passion emerged by partnering with individuals striving for trauma resolution during circumstantial life storms. After 9-11, my husband and I returned to the south after living for 10 years in northern Nevada. With a strong desire to be closer to family—mine in Georgia and his in Iowa, we settled in Tennessee in 2003. It is one of our timely, God led decisions which opened doors to vast opportunities.

Looking for a highly-specialized short-term therapy to resolve a single past or recent traumatic event? Begin your transformation now.
