Also, now offering EMDR (Eye Movement De-sensitization and Reprocessing)

EMDR is one of my treatment methods, if clients choose, and results in relatively quick and profound changes.


EMDR is the leading evidence-based treatment for trauma, stress, and overwhelm.  When beginning talk therapy, we can evaluate your life for past, present, and future emotional "overwhelm" and use EMDR to quickly and effectively lower the distress or emotional overwhelm that you feel on specific topics. This de-sensitization reduces triggers, and therefore symptoms, in relatively short periods of time.  If you've been putting off the pain of the past, not coping well with your current life stressors, or are interested in using EMDR to improve your future performance, consider a free consultation.
