"When Yolanda first told me about ART therapy I thought to myself- how can eye movements help with the feeling of guilt, anger, hurt, and shame? Well, I don’t know how it works, but I know it works. In just a few sessions, I have been able to go from all those negative thoughts to my positive thoughts. Yolanda is very easy to open up to. She makes you feel relaxed and able to share new feelings. I am so glad I went through the therapy. I will keep using it. I am grateful to Yolanda, she has taught me a new and more positive way to deal with my feelings. Thanks!!"
"ART Therapy has truly made an incredible difference in my life. I was a bit skeptical at first, but was very interested after reading more about how ART works. I went through each ART process and turned negative feelings, bad memories, and some traumatic experiences in my life into very POSITIVE feelings. The negative experiences and feelings in my life no longer held the power over me that they once did. After each session, I felt an incredible sense of RENEWAL. Each ART session is work and takes courage to face some bad experiences, but Yolanda is so terrific to work with and I felt such a sense of peace and encouragement when I worked with her. Through ART, I feel like I am a “whole” person again and I face each day with a new outlook on life."
"I have been receiving Accelerated Resolution Therapy with Yolanda for the past several months. I experienced a recent traumatic event resulting in a mental breakdown. ART has enabled me to focus on specific aspects of my life and the traumatic experience. Each session, I have changed my reaction to previous images. I believe ART has improved my mental strength and has enabled me to think about past episodes in a realistic manner. It appears that breakthroughs are quicker through this methodology. It is a positive mental therapy."
"My experience with Yolanda Harper and ART (Accelerated Resolution Therapy) has been life changing. I was really surprised at how something that seemed so simple could truly work so well. With each session I left feeling like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders. I was able to look back on experiences that previously caused me pain and be able to see them for what they were with out them having any emotional hold on me anymore. I don’t know how or why it works so well and so quickly, but it most certainly does. Thank you!"
