EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) Therapy

EMDR reprocesses past traumas, stressors, and other significant life events through bilateral stimulation that still hold power in the present by means of beliefs and emotions so you can find your best self.

FSAP (Feeling State Addiction Protocol)

FSAP breaks the fixation between feeling and behavior, which is the cause of behavioral and substance addictions, such as smoking, alcohol and drug use, gambling, sex, eating, etc. Once the fixation is broken, through EMDR, there are no further cravings or urges that have to be controlled or behavior that has to be managed.


It is so easy to get wrapped up in the “I should haves” of the past and the worries of the future, that the present is muddied, causing the littlest hurdle to be overwhelming or the most pleasant experience to be missed. Mindfulness allows individuals to fully experience the present, good or bad, non-judgmentally, one mindfully, and effectively.
