“As a patient of Jeanne Lankin I have experienced extraordinary success using the EMDR technique in overcoming trauma related to a dysfunctional childhood. Guilt, self- loathing and fear of abandonment have led me to make some bad choices which have haunted me for years and caused me great misery. With Jeanne’s guidance and EMDR I’ve gained important insight, self-confidence, and awareness. Unearthing and coming to terms with emotional obstacles, realizing that I was a victim, and putting them into perspective have given me a new lease on life. I am more able to recognize triggers and react logically and not emotionally. I highly recommend EMDR therapy to anyone who has tried other more conventional methods of therapy.”
“EMDR is one of the most effective things I’ve ever done. Since working with Jeanne my whole demeanor changed as a result of our sessions. Before that I had a different perspective on aging, now my attitude and dread is gone. I now rely on my capabilities and my ability to cope. My brain has changed. I am sleeping soundly with no more nightmares since we did the EMDR on my issues with violence. I struggled with being a victim of someone controlling my life and feeling trapped. Now I no longer feel like a victim and I experience a peacefulness that eluded me my entire life.”
“Since working with Jeanne doing EMDR I have been able to successfully process several traumatic and devastating losses that I have experienced over the past 30 years. I don’t feel paralyzed anymore by fear of future losses. I used to be overwhelmed on a daily basis and now I feel more in control of myself and my life.”
“I can’t imagine how I would have gotten through those first few years after my husband died at 67 without Jeanne and our bereavement group. We were married for 43 years and he was my best friend and our marriage was always close and loving. Jeanne was such a fabulous facilitator, listening so intently and speaking just at the right times. She was never judgmental, just supportive, sympathetic and very understanding. I am grateful for her compassion and skill.”
Panic Attacks and Anxiety
"Since becoming physically disabled I have been experiencing severe anxiety on a daily basis. So you can well imagine the level of fear I experienced when my husband had an emergency hospital stay for 11 days in the Intensive Care Unit. I never left the room for one minute. Jeanne visited us several times to help me cope with my anxiety. Seeing her there was like a cool glass of water after being stranded in the heat for several days! It was far beyond my expectations and helped me cope with that horrible time."
"My husband and I tried couple’s therapy in the past without success, but we gave it one last try with Jeanne who was awesome. She has a way of making you both feel like you are being heard and each one as important as the other, neither of us felt slighted. Success, my husband didn’t quit and neither did she. I recommend her professional services highly!"
"I battle chronic illness and the “not so fun things” that go with it (limited motion, constant severe pain, depression, loneliness etc) and am basically homebound with the exception of doctor visits. After many attempts at contacting social service agencies I contacted Jeanne’s agency. Jeanne made weekly home visits for my therapy sessions. Jeanne is the kindest, most caring and effective therapist, I highly recommend her!"
