In the search for a meaningful life? Heard about EMDR Therapy and think it might help you? Meeting with a skilled professional can be a step in finding your way to a more productive or happier life. Selecting someone to enter your experience and hear your story is a personal process. Will I like this therapist? Can she really help me?
I believe I can. I have over 25 years of counseling experience using compassion, empathy, and knowledge to bring relief, hope, support and change to individuals, families and young people.
I have a direct, dynamic and interactive style that many clients state they enjoy and appreciate. If you are struggling in personal relationships, experiencing anxiety or depression, feel troubled by past abuse or trauma, I am willing to help. I am an EMDRIA Approved Consultant in EMDR, EMDR Certified Therapist and PACT Level 2 couples therapist. Consider taking the first step and making an initial assessment appointment.
Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Health related diagnosis can trigger these states as well. Through counseling and treatment, you can be helped to recover the motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life.
Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. Using EMDR Therapy I can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of healing.
Relationship counseling can be beneficial to couples who are looking to strengthen their emotional connection, in all stages of their relationship. Therapy sessions are held with both persons and is a supportive place to discuss issues and solutions to better strengthen your relationship.
The traditional model of weekly psychotherapy is shifting to meet your needs. Now more than ever, we need flexibility in how we get support.
EMDR intensives support the busy parent with kids, the working professional, or the client who needs help now. Whatever the reason that weekly sessions just won’t work for you, EMDR intensives are available to support you during times you need help the most.
I offer EMDR intensives for my current clients when they are needing extra support, as well as new clients who prefer to work intensively.
EMDR is not just for trauma; it is also used for performance enhancement to excel in areas such as athletics, business, and relationships.
EMDR intensives are personalized treatment plans that allow you to skip the waitlist by giving you faster access to select spots, and are designed to support your preferred schedule and timeline for your treatment goals.
We’ve all had those moments in therapy where we feel stuck or loop on issues related to negative life experiences. It can be discouraging for both the client and the therapist. Often times, when the primary therapist and client collaborate with an EMDR therapist, this partnership can help move treatment forward.
I partner with primary therapists and their clients to target their clients’ specific memories, body sensations, or limiting beliefs with EMDR. By narrowly targeting specific traumatic memories or intrusive material, brief adjunct EMDR can accelerate progress in traditional therapy, help the client and the primary therapist to resolve stuck points, and enrich their ongoing work.
Adjunct therapy does not replace or interrupt ongoing therapy; it is supplemental to the primary therapeutic relationship. With adjunct EMDR therapy, clients continue to receive treatment with their primary therapist. Usually adjunct therapy is short term (4-12 extended sessions) and desensitizes single incident trauma or simple phobias that interfere with the client’s therapeutic gains.
Treatment is scheduled in an intensive format.
The success of treatment is based on clearly defined goals for the EMDR therapist, defined in collaboration with the primary therapist and client.
Fees are based on your needs and program design, and are communicated ahead of time in accordance with the No Surprises Act. Typically intensive EMDR rates range from $350 to $450 an hour.
I do not offer free phone consultations. You may request a 50-minute initial session/assessment to see if we wish to work intensively together. The rate for our first session is $450.
