Emotion Code & Body Code

The Emotion Code is a simple and transformative energy-based healing technique that is used to quickly and easily identify and release emotional energy that has been trapped. The Body Code can help identify the underlying root causes of physical and emotional discomfort, suffering, and sickness in the body and spirit.


Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing – a powerful and effective therapeutic approach that addresses numerous types of distressing events an individual may have experienced. EMDR has been widely researched with proven benefits for a variety of issues including PTSD, stress, anxiety, depression, crises, and panic to name a few.


Needing help identifying what is next in your life can be exciting.  It can also be challenging in identifying the obstacles to getting where you want to be. A Professional Life Coach can assist you in focusing on the present to bridge the gap to your future.

"Kelly and EMDR literally saved my life. I was desperate and suicidal. Since doing EMDR, I have not felt that way once." -W.T.
"Kelly has helped me to feel safe and have hope again. She has helped me to gain the ability to feel content with myself and lose the codependent need for an unhealthy spouse. Now, I have peace instead of turmoil while dealing with my unhealthy adult children." - M.W.
"After years of abuse I did not think I could be free from the intrusive thoughts and flashbacks. But, with EMDR I am free to live my life, like Kelly says, the way I choose to live, not directed by past abuse." - S.L.T.

“I am to blame.”
“I should be over the things that happened to me.”
“It has to be my fault, why else would it have happened?”

These are just a few of the statements many clients have said over the years. The truth is that we all have things that happen in our lives. We all have stuff. Dr. James was abused as a child, abused in her marriage, and abused by the legal system and struggled to get over it. She kept searching for anything that would help her feel better; to not feel the way she had felt for so long. Finally, she found a way to heal her past in order to love her future.

As co-author of the book, Why Aren’t You Over This By Now? How Trauma Messes You Up and What To Do About It, Dr. James shares how events in life have negatively affected individuals as a way to help eliminate self-blame, guilt, shame, and negative self-talk. Dr. James has over two decades of experience in the mental health field focusing on how trauma affects you from a neurobiological, body-based perspective intermingled with quantum physics.
