Melissa Deaton

EMDR Certified Therapist

EMDR Consultant

About Me

I am an mom and wife and business owner. I love EMDR and I began putting it to use right after training. I am now certified and I hope to go on to consult and then train. I have seen it do miraculous things in my clients. I often use it with DBT and ego state work.

Education & Experience

I completed my Master's in 2017 in Mental Health Counseling and my training in EMDR in 2019. I am hoping to certify in the next month.
