Have you tried therapy before, but feel like you are still struggling with stress,
relationships, and depression?

As a body-centered trauma therapist specializing in EMDR, and my healing modality, Invoke and Release®️, my goal is to help you create an integrated mind and body experience, which will help you become aware of how your thoughts affect your moods, body and your actions.

My background as a certified Holistic Health Coach will assist in our exploration of physical imbalances that may contribute to your psychological mood and well-being. My experience with a meditation practice and energy work can benefit clients who are interested in ways to manage their stress and anxiety by teaching them mindfulness tools, and quick stress techniques.

We will shine the light on parts of your psyche that may hold you back in life, and create for you a more fulfilling life. As a result, your inner wisdom will become your new ally.

People from all ethnic and cultural diversities are welcome. When you are ready, feel free to call me, and let me know what I can assist you with.

"Freda Salamy is no ordinary psychotherapist. She trained at the California Institute of Integral Studies in which she learned a holistic style of psychotherapy, which integrates the body, mind, and spirit. Beyond the traditional studies of her art, Freda has gathered much knowledge for other trainings and experiences and is always on a path of continual evolvement personally and professionally. She brings to her clients this experience and wisdom from a vast area of study. But beyond her professional training, the true gift that Freda gives to her clients is compassionate listening with active guidance. She helps clients to go deeply into their past traumas and experiences in a non judgmental and gentle way. From here she helps them to release the experiences affect on their physical body, find spiritual and emotional healing in them, and then move out of that space to a new place of freedom and peace in the present moment. Freda is truly the most gifted and compassionate therapist that I have ever referred my patients to. I feel honored to have worked with her professionally. She is a wonderful therapist for anyone who wants to have deep healing and sees healing as an adventure. She will help you to take charge of your healing in order to improve the experiences and quality of your life."

"It has been such a pleasure knowing that I can trust my patients to Freda Salamy, MFT. When I am working with a woman who has experienced trauma, I can see that it impacts both her physical and mental well-being. I know that I need help in order to best be able to improve her health and her hormone balance. Freda is the first person I think of for women with a trauma history, and I have complete trust in her abilities with EMDR therapy and her overall knowledge of natural and holistic ways of helping people overcome their past and move forward in life with confidence. The patients I have sent her way always thank me, and I say "Thank you" to Freda for being such a gem!"

"I have found the work of Freda to be a tremendous tool within our treatment strategies in the practice of optimum health here at Enliven Health and Wellness. I have witnessed, through the many patients we share, the healing effects of her work as an EMDR therapist. And as a functional medicine practitioner I am impressed with her nutritional background as well as knowledge and use of important lab test, which can be crucial in effective treatment of mood disorders.

"I wish everyone could experience the insight, guidance, wisdom and caring heart of Freda Salamy. Freda was instrumental in coaching me through the most difficult time of my life. She has a unique wisdom along with the education, training and understanding about human behavior and diverse cultural awareness that cuts through the time consuming process of providing background information that I've experienced with other coaches. She simply gets it! This rare insight gave me perspective and tools right away that helped me cope with the painful breakup of my marriage. I feel better equipped to recognize the difference between a healthy and unhealthy relationship and how to effectively communicate my needs. Another of her many unique attributes is her extensive knowledge of health, nutrition and balancing the body as well as the mind. She helped me recognize a potential hormone and thyroid imbalance and recommended I see the appropriate health care practitioner who confirmed this imbalance and started me on the appropriate treatment. I now feel a balance and motivation in my life that has been lacking for a long while. My time with Freda Salamy has been the best investment in myself!"

"It is with great appreciation and respect that I recommend Freda Salamy as a personal coach/consultant. I credit Freda's coaching with helping me overcome my severe performance anxiety - a complete change from being a shaking, nervous ball of energy with minimal self-confidence to someone who can now regularly perform in front of an audience - and it's fun! Freda's compassionate patience while I worked through my obstacles was so wonderful that I feel confident to recommend her to anyone who needs to make concrete, and specific changes for immediate results. She has the skills and experience to help anyone move through blocks that seem insurmountable. I never thought I could overcome my severe case of nerves and be a "natural" performer, but through my work with Freda, I'm a completely different person, and I could not be more grateful for the change."
