I have known Dr. Jeanne Folks for more than 20 years and have provided more than 500 hours of individual case consultation for her since June 1995. The majority of therapies on which we focus concern complex trauma and dissociative disorders.
In our consultation, Jeanne and I often consult on her therapies as peers because of the depth of her experience and skill set. She demonstrates deep respect for her clients, a willingness to learn, good boundaries, a fine moral compass, and deep knowledge of psychopathology, resilience, and recovery processes.

What People Say About EFT and EMDR with Jeanne
The first time Jeanne did EFT with me, I was so impressed and amazed at how quickly it helped me get over an issue I was dealing with. In one session, I released emotions that were affecting me for months. I was able to just live my life and be happy.
EMDR helped me uncover childhood events that I had covered up because they were too painful to remember. I didn’t realize how much they were affecting my life until they were uncovered and released. Once they were uncovered, I was able to heal those old wounds and really start living my life, drama free. J.K. New Hartford, CT
