    It is hard to describe the long-lasting impact of the ART. I experienced immediate relief after the sessions. My long-term trauma responses were mitigated by the ART.

    GAME CHANGER! EMDR/ART therapy is life changing. April is amazing at her job and made me feel at ease when I was very shook up and overwhelmed. She matched me with the perfect therapist for my retreat, Amy. Amy also is phenomenal at her job and helped me more than I could have ever expected!

    Right from the moment I first talked with Amy I knew she would be a great fit. Her gentle, encouraging ways made me feel at ease and helped me to open up and explore the past. I knew she would be there to guide me through it and I went into it with minimal fear.

    GAME CHANGER! EMDR/ART therapy is life changing. April is amazing at her job and made me feel at ease when I was very shook up and overwhelmed. She matched me with the perfect therapist for my retreat, Amy. Amy also is phenomenal at her job and helped me more than I could have ever expected! I wasn’t sure if ART would work for me because my issues were not just one event because it was my whole childhood. Life since I’ve done the retreat has been a magical process of getting to know my true self with out all the inner chatter, anxiety and bad habits. I find myself doing things I would never have done in the past and with a peaceful mind. I didn’t know that it was possible to have such inner peace all the time, even on a “bad day”. I can’t say enough about this program and the amount of gratitude I have for the process and people making it happen. My best piece of advice to those thinking about it….just do it and be completely open to the process.

    Right from the moment I first talked with Amy I knew she would be a great fit. Her gentle, encouraging ways made me feel at ease and helped me to open up and explore the past. I knew she would be there to guide me through it and I went into it with minimal fear.

    Doing ART was something I had never experienced before and it was something that helped me re-visit old trauma. Amy is the expert in it and even though there were times where I felt uncertain if I was doing it “right”, she always assured me I was doing exactly what the way it was supposed to be done.

    Amy helped me with finding resources for when I came home and I am now seeing a therapist that also does ART so that I can continue my journey of putting the past in the past. She also gave me the skills needed to handle different situations.

    I am extremely grateful for my time with Amy. While I’m not fully where I would like to be due to my stressful living situation that will never go away, I am a lot further than I have been in the last 20 years. Especially in the last 10 years or so. Where once there was nothing but despair, I now see hope.

    Thank you Amy for all you have done for me! Thank you for listening to me without judgment or condemnation. Thank you for assuring me that everything that I have felt during my experiences were normal feelings and that they didn’t make me the horrible person I thought I was. Thank you for all you do. It’s a beautiful thing to be able to lead someone out of the darkest pit and into the light.
