In my work with individuals and couples, I have found Havening to be a very effective and efficient protocol. I truly endeavor to find the most effective tools to use with my clients and Havening is one of the most effective tools I have encountered. Havening has helped my clients to cut through some very difficult symptoms that were considered difficult or formidable and confounding by mental health treatment-as-usual techniques and hospital standards. Having worked 10 years in a hospital outpatient program, I have witnessed conditions and symptoms that often were considered impossible to treat. Although Havening doesn’t solve every issue, and doesn’t work super fast with every symptom, sometimes Havening cuts through difficult mood and thought challenges more easily than anything I have ever seen, including EMDR. I am truly a fan of Havening. I have even witnessed reduction of symptoms in the areas of self harm and auditory hallucinations. And, Havening also is a valuable tool to address mood symptoms of depression and anxiety. I don’t think Havening works for everyone and I don’t think it solves every concern, but it is a tool that I am so grateful to have found. By the way, it also works well with people who are living life on their own terms and want to make their best life even better. Clients can find me in private practice in Pasadena California.
