Joan Bacon, MA, Psychologist

I'm a licensed psychologist in private practice in Emmaus, PA. I specialize in the use of the DNMS to treat both adults and children. My practice includes a special focus on trauma and PTSD. Iíve adapted the DNMS in my work with families who have adopted children with attachment deficits, such as Reactive Attachment Disorder. I'm a former teacher at Chestnut Hill College School of Graduate Studies. I taught classes about Developmental Psychology, PTSD, and Complex Trauma. I've been using the DNMS successfully since 2001 in my private practice. I've been a DNMS Trainer, Facilitator, and Consultant. I'm also a Facilitator for the EMDR Institute and an EMDRIA-Approved EMDR Consultant.
