How rewarding it is to support clients to be free of their issues and live a more satisfying and fulfilled life.
And these Client Testimonials


I have been suffering from depression for years. I had difficulties coping with a new place (since I moved here from a different country), not being able to get a job, going back to school, and a husband who was too busy to pay attention to me. Like many other women I know, I wouldn't speak up or ask from what I truly wanted, instead it I would always adjust to other's needs. This led to emotional outbursts and feelings of worthlessness. Andrea helped me set boundaries and offered me tools to make myself healthy mentally. I had meet with her once a week, attended the weekend therapy and also continue to have follow up one on one therapy with her. Andrea will hold your hand through all your troubles but only if you can be true to yourself and willing to make a change in you life. I had been very used to making excuses, finding reasons and justifications for myself and others who had done wrong by me. Andrea spoke the truth, just the way she saw it and I appreciate her making me more self aware. I benefited from her therapy only because I was open and ready to change my life. I was accepting her advice however even though it pushed me out of my comfort zone, but it paid off. Andrea understood me and my struggles. She continues to support me to better myself. There is no miracle and my life hasn't changed overnight. But thanks to Andrea I have the tools to deal with the difficult moments in my life. I have had a positive and fulfilling therapy experience with Andrea. - Ashley R.

Andrea was absolutely WONDERFUL with my two teenagers! Their father (my ex) keeps requesting court-ordered therapy, each time with a different counselor in an attempt to get the specific answers he wants. Usually we spend weeks in sessions, but Andrea was able to cut through the illusions, smoke and mirrors SO quickly - she connected with my kids faster than anyone ever has; she was honest, blunt, and "real" with them - which they appreciated and valued immensely. Andrea was able to instill a level of trust we hadn't discovered in other therapists, and the kids left her office confident, satisfied, and feeling affirmed and valued rather than patronized and ignored. We couldn't have asked for a better counselor or therapeutic experience! - Danielle S.

I went to her for individual as well as couple counseling. She has an eagerness to get results, which I enjoyed working quickly to see fast results. After three appointments I really felt that my husband and I had a significant breakthrough in our miss-communication! When I saw her individually I really felt that she sincerely cared about my situation and wanted me to know how much she cared. Very open minded and non-judgmental. I enjoyed her balance of empathy combined with her constant striving to have me working on moving me forward. - Sara B.

Andrea's Self Awareness Weekend, which I first attended 20 years ago, changed my life! Attending the weekend intensive, coupled with the "tools" which I received there, helped me grow to love and accept myself and also return to conscious connection with my spiritual Source. I have felt joyful, prosperous and blessed ever since. - Tina McGee Brubeck


EMDR combined with what I learned from the Self-Awareness Weekend about healing my Inner Child supported me in clearing my core beliefs. I now think of my issues in a positive way, instead of with all the negative thoughts associated with the incidents/beliefs. I have myself and Inner Child now, and I don't rely on or look outside of myself to guide or heal me. - Tina B.

EMDR has helped me be free from old patterns that have been holding me back from truly experiencing life. EMDR is a tool that assists with clearing unhelpful beliefs in a healthier way. The skill and caring Andrea has was apparent in her approach. The process was healing and empowering as she allowed me to take responsibility for my own healing during the process. - Vanessa G.

EMDR in one session stopped my addiction to drinking alcohol. I was so skeptical that it could work. I am now free of my drinking addiction cravings and as a bonus after our one session, I also stopped smoking marijuana on my own. EMDR works! - Marshall M.

I am a combat veteran and I cleared in 2 EMDR Therapy sessions my flashbacks and nightmares of PTSD of two serious incidents in a war setting. - Robert L.

Andrea Lambert’s compassion, empathy and skills with EMDR as a retrieval and reprogramming modality allowed me to genuinely find and retrieve my very wounded Inner Child. My Inner Child now experiences safety, security, and self-love from my adult consciousness. I am grateful for the skills, compassion, and empathetic spirit of Andrea Lambert. Her willingness to work with me as my therapist to overcome the effects of a long term relationship with a covert malignant narcissistic female has been a gift that I could not possibly repay. The most crucial aspect of my recovery, was finding a way to retrieve my Inner Child from the emotional and mental grips of my abuser. As a fully functioning adult, I really had no idea how to recover that part of myself, but Andrea did. Her skill with EMDR as a retrieval and reprogramming modality allowed me to genuinely find that part of myself, and bring my wounded Inner Child to the present, where there is safety, security, and self-love of my adult consciousness. All of the work that Andrea has helped me with has been tremendous, but this one crucial area of her expertise, Inner Child Healing, is exemplary. She has helped me to find my healing, recovery, and return to my authentic self, more than she may ever really know! Thank you, Andrea, for your dedication to Inner Child Healing, your empathetic approach, and your deep understanding and assistance in rediscovering and stabilizing my authentic self! - C.M.

I'd been on my computer looking for a sex trauma therapist in my area that did EMDR work and also accepted Tr-Care For Life insurance. (I'm a retired Air Force Lt Col, Vietnam era pilot) My very first meeting with you Andrea, I knew I had found a match - someone I could trust with my deepest secrets and fears. And in just TWO follow-on sessions using EMDR, a sexual molestation event that happened to me some 68 years ago, was gone!! I had been carrying guilt and shame that didn't belong to me all those years, and having it negatively impact a number of my relationships for most of my life! And then a couple of counseling sessions later Andrea, with your keen powers of deduction, observation, compassion, and almost ESP, we were able to find and go back to an event 52 years ago in college, that was the foundation for my inability to form a lasting, intimate relationship with other woman - and twice divorced to prove the point. We did EMDR work on that event also, and it has enabled me to now begin the grieving process, and have the kind of marriage with my life mate that she and I have both wanted for years! - P.L. (Lodi, CA)

What inspired you to start your own business?

I experienced that I could attain lasting results for clients in a shorter time by being in private practice.

Why should our clients choose you?

I would say because of my 35+ years of experience and my commitment to get lasting results for them in a short period of time. I am easy to reach on the phone and/or call potential clients within a couple of hours. I have been told many times by clients that they appreciated what I just wrote.

This will vary according to the level of experience and training that the therapist holds.

This will depend on where you live, what level of training your therapist has and what they specialise in (whether they are a counsellor, psychotherapist or psychologist) and also how many years of working experience they have.

Your professional therapist will be able to advise you on the full range of therapies available and will be able to help you select the best one to suit your needs. They will also be able to answer any questions you may have. Use Bark to get free quotes and find a trusted therapist today.

You need to devote some time to finding the right therapist as the connection you have with your therapist is essential. You need someone who you can trust, someone you feel comfortable talking to about difficult subjects and intimate secrets, someone who will be a partner in your recovery. Therapy will not be effective unless you have this bond, so take some time in the beginning to find the right person.

It is worth talking to a few potential therapists and asking questions. Therapists also have special areas of focus, such as depression or eating disorders. For some issues, such as trauma or PTSD, seeing a specialist is absolutely essential.

Everyone’s treatment is different. How long your therapy lasts depends on many factors.

You may be offered a single session of counselling, a short course of sessions over a few weeks or months or a longer course that lasts for several months or years.

It can take a number of sessions before you start to see progress but you should gradually start to feel better with the help and support of your trusted Bark therapist.

Professional counsellor training takes three to five years and can be a diploma or degree level. Qualification requires a minimum number of client hours acquired through a work placement.

You may also want to ask for testimonials of their recent work. You could also look at their profile page on Bark and Bark can show you reviews from past customers who have used their therapy.

Therapy has repeatedly and consistently helped patients with a whole host of issues. It can help with mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety or an eating disorder. Or it can help with an upsetting physical health condition such as infertility, a difficult life event such as a bereavement or a relationship breakdown. It can also be used to tackle difficult emotions such as low self-esteem, anger or sexual identity issues. Therapists also offer couples therapy. Therapists can also help with anxiety issues deriving from the coronavirus.

Absolutely! Many therapists offer sessions over the phone or through an online video chat platform, so you can have a session from the comfort of your own home - all you need is a strong internet connection and you're good to go.
