While all of the following still apply to the benefits of seeking and experiencing EMDR therapy, they are provided here as a pointer to both other EMDR THERAPISTS as well as to individuals seeking EMDR Therapy. When you realize all of the advantages of experiencing EMDR THERAPY as opposed to alternative psycho-therapy modalities, we are sure you will find the best means to accomplish your business or personal health goals.

Parent Testimonial:

“Turning Point and Sharon Schwartz’s EMDR approach to helping my son overcome his anxiety about his food allergies has changed our lives. Even though my son is the only one in our family with food allergies, it impacts all of us. His anxiety was paralyzing, and eating out and traveling were very stressful; at times not possible. We tried helping him with his anxiety and panic attacks for about a year and a half using a more traditional “talk therapy/behavioral”  approach, with little improvement. However, after only one session of EMDR with Sharon, he was feeling less anxious. After three sessions, he was like a completely different family member. I wish we had sought this treatment sooner. We are so grateful to Sharon and all that this has done for our son. His epiphany was summed up when he said “now I can work my way up the food chain”. Although his food allergies and the responsibility and realities that come with it will always be part of his life, we can dine out, travel and eat away from home without his anxiety and panic. As a parent, to have something make such a noticeable and immediate improvement in your child’s life is amazing. We are so grateful.”

Our innovative “Peak Performance” program integrates EMDR-Therapy with drawing and story telling. The symbolic associations we enable allow the child to rapidly develop and retain their own new, positive cognitions. This single and unique aspect of our intervention enables the child to be less anxious. A child that feels less anxiety is more willing and confident to participate at school and in their activities. They become “unstuck”, increasingly more effective, and measurably successful as they advance.
