Testimonials from My Clients

"Going to see Dr. Manly was the best decision I've ever made. Like most people in my situation, I was hesitant to see a therapist. My life was spiraling out of control... I was depressed, lost, and confused, but to actually admit that to a stranger seemed impossible. In her quietly brilliant way, Dr. Manly helped me to open up and observe the truths behind my problems. She had a way of cutting to the heart of my most complex issues and helping me to deal with their "real" causes.

Because of my time with Dr. Manly, I'm as strong as I used to pretend to be. If you're ready to change your life for the better and give yourself a chance, contact her. Trust yourself, trust her, and trust that your life can be beautiful!"

"When I met Dr. Manly, I was going through a very tough time in my life and was very fragile. I had repeated panic attacks, drowned myself in self-doubts, and blamed myself for failed relationships.

Through her women's therapy group, Dr. Manly taught me to manage my panic attacks and regain my confidence. We started individual therapy when Dr. Manly recognized the complex post-dramatic stress I have suffered since childhood, and she introduced me to EMDR treatment.

To say the least, this has been a life-changing experience for me. The EMDR therapy addresses and lessens the many traumas I have had since I was four years old. Dr. Manly helps me understand and recognize the automatic thoughts and behaviors that were rooted in those traumas, and we eliminate those thoughts and behaviors with EMDR. After each EMDR session, I feel elevated and, little by little, I started to free myself from the burdens I carried on my shoulders for so many years. We end each EMDR session with a positive reinforcement which emphasis on my strength, physically and mentally, and this helps me tremendously in my bike racing.

Dr. Manly goes far and beyond to help me, and I can't say enough how much she has helped to turn my life around. I'm peaceful and happy now as a result of my therapy with Dr. Manly."
