“I have searched far and wide for the most powerful and effective treatments for emotional trauma. The results I have experienced with my clients have been so fast and transformative for them that I have devoted my life to the mission of educating the public and treating those who suffer from emotional trauma with the best treatment modalities available. As a therapist who spent years doing Cognitive-Behaviorial or "talk therapy", I am amazed at how fast and deeply most clients heal with these phenomenal trauma therapies."
