By viewing this website you will be introduced to an integrative approach to psychotherapy and wellness which includes EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and Mindfulness Techniques.  EMDR is a therapy that is designed to help people heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences by activating the client’s own natural healing.  EMDR has been accepted as a therapy for the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and is a recommended treatment for trauma in the Practice Guidelines of the American Psychiatric Association, the Department of Veterans Affairs and Defense, SAMSHA, the International Society of Traumatic Stress Studies, and the World Health Organization.  However, EMDR is considered an experimental therapy for all other indications based on the current state of the published research on EMDR.  Mindfulness Techniques have evolved into a common form of complementary medicine addressing a variety of health problems by bringing together mindfulness meditation and stress management techniques. Although Mindfulness Techniques appear to have promising emotional, mental, and physical health benefits and there is a growing amount of scientific research indicating that they are effective evidence-supported group of methodologies, they have yet to be fully researched by the Western academic, medical, and psychological communities and therefore, may be considered experimental.  Mindfulness Techniques are self-regulated and are considered alternative or complementary to the healing arts that are licensed by the State of Texas.
