Utilizing EMDR & other approaches, I work with individuals who are experiencing symptoms of anxiety, depression, and trauma, as well as those going through life transitions looking for change. Because healing and growth occur interpersonally, therapy can be an impactful addition to one's life during difficult and challenging times. If you're feeling overwhelmed by emotions or stress, or feel like you're current life is being impacted by past events, there is absolutely hope out there. Many of the leading brain-body therapies now available are targeted for these types of experiences.

Life throws us obstacles every day. Sometimes we are able to overcome them on our own. Other times however, it is harder to move through them without support. When life becomes overwhelming & there seems like nowhere else to turn, therapy can be a helpful option. To some, therapy seems scary, uncomfortable, strange, or even stigmatizing. But overall, it takes courage to seek help or to make a change. I have training, education, & experience working with a range of psychological issues including depression, anxiety, substance abuse, compulsive behaviors, & addiction.

It can be scary and unerving to ask for professional help. My goal is to help you find your own tools for success. When we look at the challenges or issues that you are facing we can individualize what your needs are and awaken your own strengths. Therapy is not a place to come because you are broken, it is a place to feel safe, nurtured, and gain strength in knowing the uniqueness that is you. I hope to see you soon.

Perhaps you've tried therapy in the past and while it might have been helpful, it did not really enable you to get 'unstuck' or to fully resolve past pain which is often held at a deeper level of body and mind. A single incident trauma as well as tough childhood experiences can often be held so deep within us they are impossible to reach with our rational mind. EMDR can enable us to get 'unstuck' not only from traumatic memories but also from negative beliefs, phobias and even addictive behaviors. I mostly use attachment-based EMDR in addition to traditional therapy as it tends to make the most beneficial impact for my clients.

If we are lucky in this life we will experience many inner deaths, each an opportunity to shed the scaly skin of yesterday, to embrace our own expansion, and enter a next dimension of life. If we fail to die, we fail to grow. Sadly, we have lost the ritual container that holds our rites of passage and without the containment and guidance that goes with it many of us feel lost, hopeless, deficient in some way and without a sense of belonging. Therapy in the depth tradition has become a space to compassionately witness and accompany individuals in the alchemical process of healing and growth.

Contacting a psychologist can be uncomfortable, but it can also provide exhilaration and a sense of hope. My clinical practice and personal life are guided by the concept of self-actualization: the innate human potential to move toward a life filled with truth, love, and happiness. If you are confronted with hurdles or temporary deterrents on your path toward fulfillment, I might be able to help. When you're ready, I am here to set up a no-commitment initial session to explore your needs and provide further information. Sincerely, Dr. Amy Reichenbach, Psy.D.

Something isn’t right. You've known It & now it's nagging you. You have an idea of who you want to be in your life - a friend, a lover, happy, have an overall sense of meaning. You're not exactly sure what to do and then the thought "I will figure it out", comes in to calm you almost immediately back to procrastinating in its usual forms. You have tools. Maybe you meditate, do yoga. But when the feelings of Self-Doubt and Inadequacy act up, they take you for a Shameful ride through what could have been & will not be, resulting in "if only I were better at ___." Pushing you once again, into quiet acceptance of the way things are.
