When I met Dr. Brooks and he explained what and how he works with colored lights along with headsets that beep. Needless to say I had my doubts for my issues were extremely hard to face. To my suprise he was able to help me deal with all that happen. My biggest suprise is when working on me to stop smoking I really didn't think that after 46yrs I'd never stop. Well it finally happened. I QUIT SMOKING. My children are so proud. Dr. Brooks help save my life and I can't thank him enough. My life at 60yrs old has been one of the best feelings I could ever ask for. I'm so sad at the end of this month he will be retireing. I'm bless that I had the opportunity to meet a wonderful Dr. I hope he goes part time and able to help other patients. Dr. Brooks thank you for helping me and the laughter.

"Dr. David Brooks is an excellent Psychologist in my opinion. He has provided me much assistance in coping with multiple traumatic life experience and I feel privileged to have been able to be treated by Dr. Brooks. I have suffered some early life trauma and much more trauma related to my military experience. Dr. Brooks provides trauma desensitization using Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). With EMDR, I move my eyes back and forth following lights, which relaxes me and has proven to dramatically reduce my upset from traumatic life stimuli. I am also a brain injury survivor and Dr. Brooks has given me assistance in better understanding and coping with my brain functioning changes, as he happens to be a very knowledgeable board certified Neuropsychologist. Dr. Brooks has a good sense of humor and has been enjoyable to work with. I highly recommend him!!"Captain Dawn Ottman
"I saw counselors and psychologists many years trying deal with being abused and traumatized and got little relief, until I had the good fortune of being referred to Dr. David Brooks. Dr. Brooks was able to help me to obtain TOTAL RELIEF from my lifetime of upset in just a few months using EMDR therapy. He was also able to help me reduce my addictive cravings for chocolate. I plan to continue seeing him for a few more sessions. Dr. Brooks told me he can give me practice with some simple strategies that I can use to relax when I get tense. He also invited me to see him for more treatment if my trauma bothers me again, but said that when upsetting life memories are addressed with EMDR therapy they usually don’t bother people much again. I am able now to look back and say that was then….this is now and now and I am worthy, deserving and have importance. If you have posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) Dr. Brooks can probably quickly help you get relief and change your life."Patricia Easton
"I had some serious doubts going into trying EMDR based on how many years I had wasted on traditional therapy. However, I noticed a dramatic reduction in my anxiety as well as a newfound peace and openness towards life that I haven't felt in a very long time."Amanda Padron
