Hi I’m Dr. Paul Carlisle and I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Missouri. And I am a very proud and excited to be a  Certified Havening practitioner. I have two different perspectives on the effectiveness of Havening. 


First I’ve seen the effectiveness of Havening with my trauma survivors-PTSD clients. Havening allows me to get the client some immediate relief from specific events while at the same time beginning to build a neurological network of resilience. Pretty cool stuff! 


Secondly I’ve seen the  power of Havening in my own life. For you see, I am a trauma survivor myself. And when I went to the two day training with Dr. Kate Truitt I was looking for something that would aid me in helping my clients and move my own healing work forward. Let me tell you, Havening did not disappoint! It has made a tremendous difference in my healing journey of anxiety, depression and PTSD symptoms, like nothing else has. No, I don’t believe Havening is a miracle cure and that one session of it repairs years  of distress and trauma.  I do believe it is a superior tool to anything I have learned up to this point. By the way, this does not exempt anyone who’s receiving  Havening from doing the hard work of personal healing. I believe every individual is so valuable that they deserve to heal and grow to their maximum capacity.  So, anyone who has trauma or developmental wounding in the past has the honor of fully committing to and engaging in their own healing work. It’s a glorious privilege to do so!


Havening has equipped me to engage my clients where healing is needed and help them grow and matureIt is a dual purpose methodology. I am proud to be a part of the Havening community and extend it to my clients as one of a number of resources I have to mend brokenness and strengthen the heart and soul.  I would be privileged to come along  beside you and companion on your healing pilgrimage.
