Jane A. Hill specializes in EMDR therapy.

Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) is a psychotherapy developed by Francine Shapiro, which emphasizes disturbing memories as the cause of psychopathology and alleviates the symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). EMDR is used for individuals who have experienced severe trauma which remains unresolved. According to Shapiro, when a traumatic or distressing experience occurs, it may overwhelm normal cognitive and neurological coping mechanisms. The memory and associated stimuli are inadequately processed, and stored in an isolated memory network. The goal of EMDR therapy is to process these distressing memories, reducing their lingering effects and allowing clients to develop more adaptive coping mechanisms. This is done by having clients recall traumas while following the therapist's hand movement. The use of EMDR was originally developed to treat adults suffering from PTSD, however, it is also used to treat children.

Here is what some clients say about their counseling experience with Jane A. Hill:


I thank you for your empathy, professional skills, and calm manner. My depleted self-esteem and negative thoughts lead me down a narrow, dark road. By working with you; today I feel blessed. I understand the bad experiences in my past, have accepted that history AND am grateful to move-on as a stronger, self-confident woman. You provided advice, a listening ear, and guided me through to a BRIGHTER future. Thank you for being  in my world.

Sincerely, SLV-San Luis Obispo"


"When I came to Jane I was feeling that life was hopeless and that I would never feel what being happy felt like. As a forty year old woman dealing with childhood trauma I had become a prisoner within myself.  With the techniques Jane used in our therapy sessions I found myself breaking free from my own prison. Today I can say I know what happy feels like and it feels good. Jane provided me with many techniques that I still use in my everyday struggles as I live my journey in this life.

Thank you Jane

Adult Children of Alcoholics

ACA Group:

For more information go to:

     Adult Children of Alcoholics and people who grew up in dysfunctional homes helps people begin the healing process by getting in touch with the traumatic things that happened to them. 
Understanding that when we experience severe trauma a piece of us stays back there as that child who was traumatized. Then when something happens as an adult, we can feel like we are acting like the traumatized child. Something is similar to what happens to us as grown ups that triggers the difficult events of childhood.
ACA is about healing those traumatized parts of us and helping them grow into the whole person we were born to be.

       Let me guide you through the healing process.

         Nobody should live with debilitating stress, anxiety, or depression.

         Nobody should live with childhood trauma ruining their life today.
