Janie is board certified in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and member of EMDR International, (EMDRIA).

EMDR can help you come to terms with issues from your family background, traumatic events you've face big or small, as well as current life stressors. EMDR has been thoroughly researched and is considered one of the most thorough and efficient treatments particularly for anxiety, depression, traumatic grief and loss.
