Safe PlaceCounseling and Neurofeedback

Everyone Needs a Safe Place


Neurofeedback is like going to the gym for your brain. Just like physical exercise, a neurofeedback regimen has many benefits, such as better sleep patterns, improved memory and focus, reduced anxiety and depression, and enhanced sports performance. Neurofeedback is non-invasive and drug-free, and our system is one of the most effective and efficient psychotherapy tools available.


The goal of EMDR therapy is to process traumatic memories and other disturbing life events to bring them to resolution and replace trauma memories with positive, healthy ones. The effectiveness of EMDR therapy has been well established and is considered the treatment of choice for PTSD by the World Health Organization.

"Deanna is amazing! She is very good at what she does and was able to help me immensely. I have been to therapists off and on throughout my life and Deanna was able to teach skills that I will continue to use forever. I have not always had that experience with other therapists. I highly recommend her!"

A place that is protected from or not exposed to danger or risk; sheltered, secure, out of harm's way, calm, serene, peaceful.
