Anxiety holding you back?

(View inside a hot air balloon)

Do you have dreams, but struggle to get them 'off the ground?'

Hello, I'm Marlena

You may be reading this right now, thinking about the dreams you wish could become a reality. Maybe you've tried various things to make those dreams happen, but something keeps holding you down. You feel 'stuck.'

Helping you to become 'unstuck,' is where I come in...

Struggling to reach goals

Becoming 'unstuck' means that we may focus on:

Goal Setting   •  Tackling roadblocks to goals

Performance Enhancement    •   Anxiety, including Social Anxiety

Trauma & PTSD   •   Spirituality    •    Self-Esteem    •   Co-dependency

Performance Enhancement

Feeling Stuck.

A growing area of interest for Marlena is with using a particular type of therapy called 'EMDR' for performance-enhancement. Most people associate the use of EMDR for trauma but EMDR can also be used to increase confidence, move past stuck places and mental blocks, and decrease fear, anxiety, and negative beliefs that stand in the way of growth and potential.

Who can benefit from working on 'performance enhancement' & EMDR?

People who could benefit from this therapy may be anyone attempting to enhance their performance such as:

  • athletes
  • public-speakers or performers
  • business-oriented professionals
  • or those who identify a stuck spot in their career, sports, or even relationships

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences.  Repeated studies show that by using EMDR therapy people can experience the benefits of psychotherapy that once took years to make a difference.

Marlena is Level I & Level II trained
