I am a Licensed marriage and Family Therapist, practicing counseling and psychotherapy for over 20 years.
I specialize in using methods such as EMDR and Brainspotting as they can provide fast relief and permanent healing and recovery. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing is an efficient, effective and extensively researched therapy. It helps release and clear negatigve emotions, thoughts, physical ailments and behavioral dysfunctional patterns and habits. Often people have resigned about ever being able to change certain things they suffered from. They report the results are "miraculous."
The negative beliefs that get cleared out through EMDR generally stem from past expeirence, very often from childhood, where the young child perceived painful/neglectful/abusive situations as meaning something about his or her own self. Examples are: "I am not good enough," "I am bad," "I am alone," I am not deserving," "I am stuck." These negative beliefs are not really true (we know it intellectually but still they feel true at a gut level nevertheless).
These core beliefs do run the show of our lives whether we are consciously aware of them or not -- until they are cleared.
