Hello! I’m Jenna Burton, LMHC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor she/her/hers

I’m glad you’re here. I provide virtual counseling and EMDR therapy in Florida, South Carolina, and Texas. Think of our sessions as a nurturing environment to overcome the effects of trauma, chronic stress, and autoimmune disease symptoms.

My passion is helping you relieve stress, pain, and inflammation, for good.

In recent years I’ve focused on the connection between the nervous and immune systems.  They are intertwined and can remarkably adapt through life’s physically and mentally challenging times. Taking good care of your mental health has a clear benefit on immune system health.

With EMDR treatment I can help you restructure unwanted behaviors and reactions that are taking away your quality of life.

This means you can stop the unshakable feelings of sadness, fear, or shame. You can change undesirable behavior that is most likely a coping mechanism for something unpleasant or difficult that happened to you in the past.

Together we can reset your body to instinctively manage stress healthily therefore regulating and stabilizing systems and calming inflammation.

Using EMDR to treat clients since 2004

For 20+ years, I’ve helped individuals and families manage and recover from intense challenges that come with various issues.

Childhood trauma, PANS/PANDA, Schizophrenia, and psychosis can all be treated with EMDR because of the common nature of the illnesses.

Every individual is unique, and there is no one-size-fits-all approach to healing. That’s why I take the time to listen to your concerns, understand your goals, and develop a customized treatment plan that aligns with your needs and preferences.

Our individual experiences are unique, but the body reacts to all stress by the same human instinct.

Because EMDR treatment focuses on healing the same nervous and immune systems that all humans share, my practice works well for all genders, ages, and ethnicities.

Hundreds of thousands of Americans are dealing with undiagnosed mental health issues.  Most of us are living in a constant state of alert (flight, fight, freeze, fawn), or chronic depression and anxiety,  unaware that we are stuck.

Everyone experiences traumatic events in life and the consequences of untreated trauma can be life-altering. However, it’s never too late to desensitize and reprocess memories holding us back.

Let me help you find your way back to the life meant for you.

Become Your Future Self

We are our memories.  Nervous systems store information about our memorable experiences throughout the body.

Each thought and feeling we have is a part of our developed circuits and pathways that make up our uniquely crafted nervous system.

Keeping the miraculous abilities of the human nervous system in mind, it is important to understand that we didn’t voluntarily adapt all of our own instilled behaviors, thoughts, and feelings.

But we can change them.

Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR) is a powerful and proven psychotherapy that assists the mind and body in processing unresolved trauma so you can move forward and reach your goals, whatever they may be.

EMDR resets stress responses in natural adaptive systems,  allowing you to achieve the outcomes you desire.

Our feelings, emotions, beliefs, and actions come from everything we’ve experienced in life.  Undesirable beliefs can be corrected to the beliefs and reactions you desire with EMDR therapy.

Improve autoimmune disease symptoms

The human body has not evolved enough to handle the chronic stress of modern life. This is evident when the nervous and immune systems show signs of trouble by overproducing inflammatory hormones meant to heal.

The immune system and the nervous system work in similar ways and they share information.

They have adaptive memory networks that can be reprocessed with EMDR therapy. This means EMDR can change unwanted behaviors you haven’t been able to change on your own.

When it comes to autoimmune diseases, women, and minority women especially, tend to suffer from them more than men. This may be because females are at higher risk of being exposed to the external triggers.

Healing stress and past trauma can help regulate the nervous system. Henceforth a direct effect on minimizing inflammatory hormones that aggravate flares.

My clients with autoimmune disease have all reported a better general sense of the mind body connection during and after EMDR treatment.
