I seek to provide a safe, encouraging, non-judgmental, Christian atmosphere where people can heal and feel empowered. I believe that God designed people to heal and live in harmony, but sometimes life's problems and past experiences get in the way. Traumatic experiences and/or destructive attitudes, addictions, or behaviors can have a detrimental impact on all aspects of life. I use EMDR, a remarkably effective and proven treatment for quickly healing old wounds and helping people embrace their own spiritual and emotional strengths.
I love using EMDR and seeing people heal. Christian counseling is my calling. Learn more at PeggyAventPhD.com
I have over 35 years experience and a PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and have years of experience as an EMDR Therapist and EMDR Consultant.

Jesus was open to all people and did not discriminate. I try to do the same. Using EMDR to help people find their own strengths and a healthy direction is extremely rewarding. And when we can clear up old childhood traumas -that people thought could never be treated - it is exciting for me.
