Testimonials


  • When Jake first introduced EMDR I thought -“yeah whatever Jake” I was very skeptical thinking “how can this work? ” After overcoming my mistrust I tried EMDR. What a terrific tool this is! In my mind I was able to separate my unsubstantiated thoughts with what I wanted my thoughts to look like. I feel so much more emotionally free after using EMDR.  Thank you Jake!

 

  • It’s amazing to think that a tool as simple as EMDR could be so effective. I am so, so, so very thankful that psychologists researched this and made it available to people like me. I had basically accepted the fact that my pain from trauma would remain for the rest of my life after having been through a year and a half of talk-therapy. While talk-therapy was very helpful, it couldn’t seem to rid me of the cement-block of pain that I carried around. That’s when I heard about Jake and EMDR. I knew it was for me and immediately called and began counseling again. Though the process was painful, I was winning my battles. My intense anxiety, shame and feelings of isolation subsided dramatically to the point that I haven’t felt significant shame or anxiety for months, and I feel more connected to my friends and family than I ever have. I began feeling tremendous freedom, peace, and joy—all feelings that I thought would be impossible for me to feel again in an authentic way. I truly cannot recommend Jake’s services enough to anyone thinking about it. He was always in my corner and made me feel comfortable talking about absolutely anything, and moreover, he constantly believed that I would succeed

 

  • I had the privilege of attending therapy sessions with Jake over the course of roughly three months, dealing with some struggles with anxiety, identity, and my family of origin. I was very hesitant to begin going to a counselor out of fear that I would be considered “crazy”, “too broken”, or “too unstable”. First of all, Jake put all these fears to bed by showing me that like literally everyone else in the world I am not perfect-welcome to the human condition! His personable, human, compassionate, non-judgmental, and refreshingly humorous outlook on my life and life in general helped me to begin to be radically open, allowing healing and the undoing of my destructive ways of thinking and unfair perspective of myself and my struggles. I came to a deeper ability to respect myself, to begin forgiving those who harmed me, and to move forward in peace armed with the skills to live in reality and greater happiness. I would happily and enthusiastically recommend anyone go to him for assistance in their psychological and emotional struggles. They should expect to meet a great man who will make them feel comfortable, understood, and genuinely able to empathize with their situation in respect and integrity.

 

  • Through the guidance and expertise of Mr. Jake Voelker, many previous experiences that were holding me back were freed. He did not solve my problems for me, rather he assisted and guided me down a path of dealing with these problems myself. This is exactly what a counselor should do, in my opinion. Mr. Voelker is well versed in the issues he can expertly deal with. The sense of trust, that was present from the very first encounter, was due to Mr. Voelker’s professionalism, his great personality, and sheer fact that he wants his clients to succeed. He is not in it for the money, and that is very apparent by his willingness to work with his clients and his ability to be as productive as possible with the time that is being paid for. Mr. Voelker was a great counselor for me and truly has impacted some of the deepest wounds that I faced.
