Licensed Professional Counselor, Paige Valdiserri, discusses how she resolved her desire to add more modalities to classic counseling strategies. Through her many years of work with our troops, their families, first responders, and others with PTSD, Paige discovered that her classic counseling strategies would not suffice.  She saw deep tension and stress in the bodies of returning soldiers. She knew that energy work like Reiki and Yoga had helped her recover from her own PTSD. She began to create a modality to integrate energy work into classic counseling techniques. Through her Energetic Body Dialogue (EBD) she began to address this tension in the body so that these warriors might better release the trauma they accumulated during deployment. Soon she saw this combining of techniques helped other clients as well. Paige describes EBD and some testimonials she has received.

Paige Valdiserri, MEd, LPC, NCC, BCETS, RMT, is a professional counselor and an intuitive healing consultant.  She is president and CEO of her own counseling, healing, and consulting business where she developed the “Energetic Body Dialogue” approach based on the principles of counseling, Reiki energy work, Yoga, and various other modalities. She also serves as Director of Behavioral Health for the international occupational health firm, Comprehensive Health Service, where she develops and implements integrated behavioral health programs that support the military, government contractors, and families of the deployed.
