I can facilitate you in releasing your symptoms.
This work is as easy and painless as sitting down.
You will not have to relive the trauma.
Your feelings of safety and comfort are paramount!
This system is not psycho-analysis.
You will not have to divulge personal information (you are uncomfortable in sharing) in order for the system to work.
This system is called "client directed" therapy.
My job is to facilitate you in your own process of release.
This is not long-term therapy.
symptoms may be relieved after one visit.
