About Mindful Hearts Institute

MHI is Jenna Burton, LMHC, an EMDR therapist in Orlando, Florida.

Find the root cause of distressing behaviors and feelings, and then begin the healing process, allowing your brain to accept new responses and outlooks.

The power to improve our thoughts

My approach recognizes how the brain and body are interconnected and that healthy relationships and resolving past traumas are the key to reaching more of our own potential, impacting the people around us in a more constructive way, thus creating healthier families, healthier workplaces, and a healthier world.

About Me

Jenna Burton, LMHC

Active community member, runner, lover of bull dogs


I underestimated my own traumatic experience.

It was at my very first EMDR training where I discovered past traumas were connected to present day issues I was having at the time. The immediate positive impact EMDR had on my own challenges convinced me that this therapy is a powerful tool in obtaining and sustaining long-term mental health.

Entrenched in the aftermath of the Pulse massacre.

One of the deadliest mass shootings in the United States, happened in my hometown on June 12th, 2016.  The morning after the shooting, and every day for the next 18 months, I dedicated myself to giving comfort and healing to a devastated community.
