“Turning Point and Sharon Schwarts’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, and at times not possible. We tried helping him with his anxiety and panic attacks for about a year and a half with a more traditional therapy approach with little improvement. However, after only one session of EMDR with Sharon, he was feeling less anxious. After just three sessions with her, he was like a completely different person. I wish we had sought this treatment sooner. We are so grateful to Sharon and all that this has done for our son. Although his food allergies and the responsibility and realities that come with it will always be part of his life, now we can dine out, travel and eat away from home without the anxiety and panic. As a parent, to have something make a noticeable and immediate improvement in your child’s life is amazing. We are so grateful.”
Our customized child and adolescent plans are from 4 to 10 sessions. In the past few years, we realized that there was an increasing need to help kids dealing with anxiety of all kinds. We also recognized that their anxiety could also mask underlying feelings of low-self esteem.
Our innovative “Peak Performance” program integrates EMDR-Therapy with drawing and story telling and simply enables children to be less anxious. When a child feels less anxiety, they more willingly and confidently participate at school and in their activities. As they become increasingly effective, they become more successful, and they advance.
