Anadel Barbour PhD., LMFT


Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing focuses

on traumas big & small, acute and chronic.

EMDR can heal

those wounds.


The definition of Mindfulness is present time awareness, without judgement.  


As one of our basic

needs, as well as a source of pleasure, sex can be the most difficult area to seek help for.


The word “trauma”, derived from 17th Century Greece, is translated as “wound”.


Clinging, craving aversion. These are

the characteristics

of addiction.

Trauma Healing Therapist
My Approach

Because my life has been filled with challenges, I have a deep understanding of suffering. My journey to here was made up of years of family dysfunction and abuse, drug and alcohol addiction, mad passion for acting and punk rock, and many failed loves and lusts. My life changed when I decided to do things differently. I got sober. I began to heal.

My specialties are the result of my personal experiences:

-I focus on sex because my shame and guilt have healed.  

-I focus on trauma because my fears no longer rule my thought life.

-I focus on addiction because hope has replaced hopelessness.

That is my wish for you. If you do things differently, things will be different.

My approach includes helping you choose the life you want to live. My practice helps find relief for those suffering from sensitive sex/sexuality issues, traumas, addictions, anxieties and depression. Using a combination of EMDR and Mindfulness, we work together to create the life you want to live.
