• Jordan Shafer, MS, LPC

    I am available on a limited basis, every other week. Contact mail by email.

    As an EMDR therapist, I help people explore and identify the thought patterns constantly running in the background that cause conflict and discomfort.  These thoughts or “neural patterns,” which are formed over a lifetime, cause anxiety and stress (PTSD) and are disruptive regular living.  As these emotional patterns are identified, we then use EMDR processing to resolve them.  Sometimes this can be accomplished in a few sessions, but most often it takes longer.

    I teach people the skill of tuning into their “felt-sense”, staying with their emotions, and learning to regulate their feelings and emotions from that place.  This is a great way to live in the present moment, responding in “real-time” to what is currently happening as opposed to reacting to a contrived reality constructed in the mind and being played out in “real-life.”

    For people who want to go deeper, I encourage them to buy, read and do, The Presence Process by Michael Brown.  We can then use that as a way to guide our sessions and the work we do.

    I help people see life from a different perspective.  After all, you can’t use the thinking you used to get into your current discomfort, to get you out of it.
