I provide EMDR as an integrative therapeutic approach to those who want to experience more effective results in overcoming life struggles and eliminate symptoms. Research fully demonstrates that EMDR leads to positive results when dealing with all types of trauma, combat related trauma and other life issues. EMDR helps a person process negative feelings and thoughts and change the way we think about both ourselves and our memories. Dr. Herb recommends intensives, which produce faster results than weekly sessions using standard talk-therapy approaches.
EMDR addresses symptoms associated with life events that have produced anxiety, fear, hopelessness or sleepless nights. EMDR has been proven to be effective in overcoming these symptoms and hastening the journey towards victorious living.
Dr. Herb firmly grounds her use of EMDR in Biblical principles and the belief that God is Sovereign.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a form of therapy unlike traditional talk-therapy, which is based on helping you understand what you feel, why you feel it and how to cope with those feelings in your life. Essentially – let’s change how you think and that will change how you feel. Sounds good on paper……
EMDR TAKES A DIFFERENT APPROACH. While EMDR will help you understand what you feel and why, EMDR also “rewires” your brain – through the use of eye movements – so that you no longer feel those feelings associated with your negative core beliefs. Therefore, reducing the impact of what you feel to a state of acceptance. EMDR does not erase memories, but it desensitize memories that have led to the creation of negative core beliefs about self. Essentially – let’s rewire your brain to change how you feel, and that will change your life.
In EMDR treatment, you and I will identify your negative beliefs along with the memories of life situations and events that have led to the creation of these negative beliefs. We will process the memories of these situations and event and desensitize them through eye movements.
EMDR is a highly researched, evidence based therapy that is used throughout the world.
Servant leadership and striving towards excellence makes lasting impressions for those in your work team. Connecting with people, one to one, promotes victory for you both in the journey towards excellence. Yet, sometimes, even the best leaders are hampered by their own life stressors and maladaptive patterns of learning. It's rooted in how the brain functions, learns and stores memories. Drawing on my experience as a Rear Admiral in the Navy, I can help you curiously observe your own behaviors, think about the pros and cons and develop new strategies to improve your leadership and your effectiveness in your organization.
