Rapid Resolution Therapy (RRT)  Master Practitioner & Associate Trainer 


Bay Area Center for Rapid Resolution




Los Gatos, CA











Phone:  704-807-1101





Rapid Resolution Therapy (RRT) is a fast and effective solution for many of life’s challenges. It is a pragmatic approach informed by science and philosophy. RRT shifts the way the mind processes information so that improvements in thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are natural and automatic. 


RRT works to address and clear the ongoing effects of anxiety, panic disorder, insomnia, night-terrors, grief, heartbreak, betrayal, childhood abuse, sexual violence, shame, guilt, rage, anger, jealousy, and combat or first responder PTSD.


After their RRT session, people report being so absorbed in the therapeutic conversation they are astonished when they discover how dramatically their feelings, thinking and responses have been transformed. They tell me they feel lighter and that it is impossible to experience the turmoil that had been weighing them down. They also report a new sense of freedom and clarity. 

An RRT session can often be completed in a single day.
