Feeling Stuck?

If you have been having troubling thoughts, feelings, or responses, you haven't been choosing to think, act, or feel this way, so how could you possibly choose NOT to? 

If you have been feeling stuck it is likely the attempts to cause change have been affecting only the conscious part of your mind, not the subconscious, which you can not control.  Troubling events, beliefs, and meanings can be stuck, causing a data misread or a data "blip" of perceived threat even if there isn't one.  When this happens, the subconscious mind causes troubling thoughts, feelings, sensations in order to get you to take action so you survive, thrive, or get something to be better.  It is all about protection, but it is unnecessary protection when there is no immediate imminent a lion chasing you! 


With Rapid Resolution Therapy, you DON'T have to feel worse BEFORE feeling better! Most clients see me 1-3 times and leave our first session saying "Wow! I feel better already." You won't have to do homework, relive a trauma, or even know why you've been stuck.

"It's about data, not destiny"

What Is Rapid Resolution Therapy®?

Rapid Resolution Therapy® (RRT), created and developed by Dr. Jon Connelly, is an integrative approach that clears the negative effects of painful events, beliefs, and meanings.  Many of these events can be traumatic, but it is not necessary to have experienced trauma to benefit from RRT.  

This approach to healing and positive change utilizes precise and strategic multi-level communication that clears the effects gently and painlessly even if the event, belief, or meaning has been repressed, forgotten, or not known. When something painful or disturbing is experienced, it can slam into awareness leaving a lasting impression. Even when the experience is finished, deeper parts of the mind may continue to respond as if the disturbing event is still occurring.  Even experiences that have been forgotten can continue to exert a negative influence.  By eliminating the ongoing influence of events, beliefs, and meanings, blocked energy is released, healing occurs and change is automatic.

  • gentle and painless; often fun

  • conflict blocking desired change disappears

  • root causes of problems are pinpointed and cleared

  • positive changes endure

  • negative emotions and destructive behavioral patterns are eliminated

  • dramatic improvements in thoughts, feelings, and behavior

  • promotes mind-body healing

  • it is a brief therapy

Is RRT with Denise Right For You?

In each meeting, I intend to get as much accomplished as quickly as possible.  Many people meet with me 1-3 times, but when there is more to accomplish, we can meet for additional sessions.  Though I do not offer traditional, ongoing (indefinite) sessions, clients are welcome to return as often as valuable to fine-tune or to apply RRT to a different issue.  

If you are not familiar with RRT, please watch this video as I briefly explain how I think about things so you can make sure you are good with it.  This video covers a brief overview of RRT perspective of how emotions and thoughts are created.  This sets the framework for my sessions.  I am not thinking that the way I think about things has to be truth or that other ways of thinking about things are false,  however, I find that when my clients and I think this way together, it really lines things up so I can do what I do......adjust things from the inside out.  My clients tell me the changes are then natural and automatic.  

Are you good with our meetings being different than traditional talk therapy, and:

  • the RRT perspective can be unusual, and often the opposite of what you may have been exposed to previously

  • meeting via Zoom

  • though you can tell me anything you find valuable, I will likely talk more than you during our meeting(s)

  • I will be gentle but direct, and may even interrupt sometimes, in order to keep us on track and to get things accompished

  • I will discourage introspection as it is often part of the stuckness
