I have written numerous books, articles, chapters and therapeutic material for children that have emerged from almost 20 years of clinical practice and the latest findings in neurosciences and psychology.

As a teacher and lecturer,
I am dedicated to providing trainings full of creative ideas, based on the latest research and literature to mental health professionals, paraprofessionals, educators and parents.

As a consultant,
I am committed to supporting the growth of other mental health professionals based on my extensive experience working with families, children and adults.

Last but not least, as a researcher,
I am committed to expanding our understanding of the best therapeutic interventions for families and children.

EMDR Books and Kits by Ana

This book is especially designed for mental health professionals trained in EMDR therapy to use with the children they treat. This book has been written to help children with histories of trauma and adversity better understand why they think, feel, and somatically respond to the present the way they do. 

When using EMDR therapy with children, two of the greatest challenges for clinicians are assisting children in identifying the negative and positive cognitions as well as obtaining the validity of the positive cognition (VoC).

Dark, Bad Day...Go Away is the first hard cover, illustrated book for children that motivates, prepares and guides children to use EMDR therapy. It is now available in Portuguese, Spanish and Japanese.
