Karin Weiri specializes in EMDR and has worked with many people who have experienced severe anxiety, PTSD, and depression. She works holistically and looks at each person’s emotional, physical, and financial health and targets the area that is most in need. Karin's passion is to help people who have gone through trauma and suffer from anxiety using a powerful method called EMDR that targets cognitions, emotions, and the physical body to help release the body's memory of it on a cellular, neurological, and physical level. In essence, EMDR is a way to speed up neuroplasticity. She works holistically and looks at each person’s emotional, physical, and financial health and targets the area that is most in need. Karin is the host of "Shift Happens!".

Over the years Karin has realized that the majority of people who are experiencing anxiety/fear, depression, or PTSD is because of something, and often, many things have happened that confirmed some negative belief you have about yourself that has now become the subliminal background music for your everyday behavior. Ninety percent of our behaviors are subconsciously derived based on early programming if you will. By that, I mean that the first 6 years of a child’s life, is when the majority of what we learn about how the world works and how we interact with other people, is cemented in the brain and that is the place from which we behave 90% of the time. This means that since many of us did not grow up in a perfect and ideal family home, we benefit greatly from “updating” the programming.

Without updating our programming, we then re-create situations in our relationships that confirm these negative beliefs over and over again such as the woman who keeps choosing to be in a relationship with men who cheat on her because she has the belief that men are not to be trusted. Or the man who gets fired from every job because he is late every day and misses important deadlines because subconsciously he believes that “I am not good enough.” Therefore, he underperforms in all situations including in his marriage where he does not contribute to planning for the future or making daily decisions in the household but leaves it all up to this wife.

The good news is that you do not have to continue to live your life that way. And you do not have to be on medication for the rest of your life because the medication does not resolve the reason why you feel and behave the way you do. It simply numbs you for a while and has numerous side effects that may lead to much worse health issues.
