Dave Jetson, a licensed professional counselor, has walked the difficult emotional path he describes in Finding Emotional Freedom. A survivor of childhood abuse and neglect, he grew up hearing that he was stupid and worthless. When he began counseling as an adult, he found that traditional talk therapy wasn't enough to break down his deep defenses. Eventually he found a therapist who offered the deep experiential work that helped him release years of stored emotional pain, shame, guilt, and rage.
Dave went on to earn a Master's degree in counseling at South Dakota State University, graduating summa cum laude in 2003. In his counseling practice, he offers many different therapeutic techniques to help clients connect with themselves. After training in and experiencing various types of therapy, he has embraced intuitive experiential therapy because it is effective in healing emotional trauma. He works with clients individually, provides relationship and family counseling, and offers experiential group therapy and workshops. He is a pioneer in offering both individual and group experiential therapy via Internet video conferencing.
The workshops Dave has created include Freedom from Negative Self-Talk, Sexuality and Relationships, and Financial Codependency. His Financial Recovery workshops feature experiential exercises using clients' real money.
Dave has given talks and facilitated workshops across the United States and in Panama and Australia. He is a contract therapist with Onsite Workshops near Nashville, Tennessee. His work has been featured in Self magazine and The Journal of Traditional Eastern Health & Fitness.

This is not a self-help book. It is an explanation and a guide.
For anyone who is currently experiencing intuitive/experiential therapy and looking for an explanation of what is happening and why it works, read this book.
For anyone who is struggling in any way in their life or simply not at peace with themselves, read this book.
I discovered many experiences, thoughts, feelings, reactions I have had are not unique or even unusual. I am not alone or abnormal. I found great comfort in receiving Dave Jetson's explanation of the science of how our brains work and who we really are as human beings.
