"I was diagnosed with complicated grief and PTSD shortly after my son died by suicide. There are no words to explain the depth of my guilt, shame and grief. I didn’t understand what caused the PTSD and I couldn’t control it. My life was unbearable and completely out of control. The counselor I had been seeing for a year was only compounding the trauma. I was about to give up by the time I came to see Jodi. I knew instantly that she was different. She listened, she guided me and explained how EMDR would allow me to process the intense trauma and grief. Jodi offered to do a counseling intensive. This was such a blessing because I was able to accomplish more in those hours than I had in the previous 18 months of counseling. Jodi did more than help me process the immediate trauma. She helped me address early childhood traumas that have affected me for most of my life. Jodi gave me tools and taught me how to recognize triggers and panic attacks before they were out of control. Jodi provides a safe environment to expose your deepest fears. She’s compassionate and experienced in dealing with grief. She saved my life."
"EMDR has given me a peace and strength I didn’t know I was missing. Treatment isn’t scary and doesn’t ask you to process anything more than what you’re ready for. I was amazed at how my body remembered and stored my memories. EMDR gently helped me to identify and heal some damaging core beliefs I had been carrying around since childhood. I can now, without discomfort or triggering, discuss trauma that I couldn’t speak of for 11 years. It has given me not only peace, but important tools for dealing with future life stressors. I will continue to recommend it to anyone who has suffered trauma, no matter the severity."
“My EMDR experience with Jodi was simple and effective. I found that my perspective of past wounds has been transformed to give me a new freedom. As a skilled professional, Jodi has made an outstanding influence on my life! I recommend EMDR therapy with Jodi in multiple-hour sessions. This helped me go deeper and keep momentum going.”
