Hello, I'm Marlena




Issues Treated

MDH Section2-100

Special Area of Interest:  Performance Enhancement

A growing area of interest for Marlena is using 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?

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

Therapies Utilized

• EMDR •

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.

- from EMDR Institute, Inc.

Marlena is Level I & Level II trained in the use of EMDR therapy.

• Non-Traditional Therapies •

For those interested in using non-traditional or non-talk therapy to cultivate peace and inner guidance.

  • mindfulness
  • spirituality
  • yoga-based practices

Be on the lookout for additional offerings such as full yoga classes and Reiki later this year.
