What Our Clients Are Saying
It’s like Summer took all of my puzzle pieces, put them together and showed me the finished puzzle. She helped me understand why I behave the way I do, where the root of my problems stem from. I will never stop recommending her. Thank you Summer for rescuing me from myself.
I was facing the most extreme case of anxiety I had ever known. I was using Xanax and other anti-depressants to cope with my day to day activities. Summer introduced me to EMDR where I was forced to face my fears and find the root cause of my anxiety. Fast forward 3 months and I’m free of ANY medications. EMDR helped me find my root cause and I’m so thankful!
Working with Summer’s team has totally transformed my life. I went through the EMDR program and now I live a confident, fulfilling and happy life. Thank you, Summer for everything!
I’ve benefited greatly from EMDR treatment. For example, many of my fears and anxieties through all of these years have been reduced with just a few sessions of EMDR. I feel like these fears have been processed to the point, where I’m not influenced by these challenges anymore. Thank you, Holly.
