EMDR can help to resolve emotions about distressing past experiences.
My calendar is currently full. Please check this space for availability. I give my clients feedback and use my life experiences to connect with them. My job as a counselor is to help clients progress and attain their goals. I "meet clients where they are" which means that I won't try to force you to say or do anything that doesn't feel right for you. I'll help you to view situations in new ways, clarify ideas, and invite you to try new things. As partners in counseling, we work to achieve the same ends. Every person has physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects which are all considered and addressed in my approach.

I have been trained in EMDR, which has been an effective treatment for trauma, anxiety, and other concerns.
If you have been feeling overwhelmed, preoccupied, that you would benefit from talking to someone who is a neutral listener, it may be time to look into counseling. Many people experience trauma throughout life, anxiety, depression, and other mental health symptoms. Many people also deal with situational stressors that occur at different times throughout life causing periods of disruption. Seeing a therapist can help with short term, solution focused concerns, or long-term treatment.

I am also trained in Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) to address traumatic experiences.
We are hard wired for connection and have the innate need to feel loved and secure. When these key ingredients are missing from our most important relationships, it is isolating and may cause feelings of anxiety, sadness, loneliness, and deep frustration. If you are experiencing the pain that comes from strained relationships, there is hope. Therapy can help you (whether in your romantic partnership, family, or as an individual) learn the necessary skills to reduce relationship tension and improve connection with your loved ones. I am a marriage and family therapist specializing in couples therapy and trauma.

EMDR Therapists
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is an information processing therapy that helps clients cope with trauma, addictions, and phobias. During this treatment, the patient focuses on a specific thought, image, emotion, or sensation while simultaneously watching the therapist's finger or baton move in front of his or her eyes. The client is told to recognize what comes up for him/her when thinking of an image; then the client is told to let it go while doing bilateral stimulation.

If you're looking for EMDR therapy in Pittsburgh or for a Pittsburgh EMDR therapist these professionals provide EMDR therapy, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing and EMDR treatment. They include EMDR therapists, EMDR psychologists, EMDR psychotherapists, and EMDR counselors.
