Client's Testimony

"The time I spent working with Charlette was by no means easy. The journey of self discovery and healing never is. I have found the end result has been more than I ever imagined. I worked hard to let go of past trauma during a process called EMDR. By learning to be genuine, trust, and truly connect with those closest to me, I have seen my new stronger and healthier relationships continue to affect everyone in my family in positive ways. Learning to be mindful and live in the present is something I work at every day and continue to try to share with my family. The benefits of the work I did with Charlette has changed me, I am no longer reliving old patterns and feeling pain that is not part of my present. I know that the tools Charlette shared with me will help me to be present during the good and bad of my future, allowing me to experience true joy during good times, and helping to give me strength and coping skills to endure the difficult times that are a part of everyone's life."
