Welcome! My name is Eric Hoyme and I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor specializing in treating trauma and PTSD . I have been practicing psychotherapy for 13 years and have worked in psychiatric hospitals, substance abuse treatment centers, and private practice. I am an EMDR Therapy specialist. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy is a gold standard treatment for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder ( PTSD ) that was developed in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s. It involves attending to both the past and the present in order to resolve problematic emotions.

In addition, I have worked for over 18 years with individuals who struggle with depression, anxiety, substance abuse, trauma , and emotional management difficulties.
We all need help at times - someone to talk to and/or someone to help us learn better ways to achieve the life we want, whether it's to cope with depression, anxiety or past traumas, or learn better ways to communicate. I will provide a safe, supportive environment in which you can talk about your thoughts and feelings, and also learn healthy skills to better manage your emotions and have better relationships. I will provide you with caring feedback and perspective. I will provide a non-judgmental, compassionate, caring relationship because I know that the relationship between the therapist and the client is an important one.

My expertise includes helping clients find guidance, gain insight and a greater self-awareness, achieve a deeper understanding of their past and present, get relief from emotional pain, heal trauma , overcome anxiety and depression, and feel empowered to make their voice heard and live authentically.
If you are here, you have already taken one of the most important steps in self-care. Whether you are dealing with anxiety, depression, life stressors or relationship problems, or simply looking for ways to improve yourself or your situation, therapy provides you with the insight, skills, and necessary tools to make positive changes in your life. While some issues respond best to a particular style of therapy, what remains critical is the therapeutic relationship. Indeed, many of my clients have told me that having a caring therapist whom they could trust, who made them feel safe, and believed in them, helped the most.

My focus is on perinatal/maternal mental health, life transitions, trauma , self-esteem, and mood disorders.
A therapist allows you the space to safely speak your truth, explore your identity and what that means to you, and learn how to approach life with that knowledge. You might be going through life transitions and adjustments such as changes in relationships, living situations, or career. You might be a mother trying to navigate through your new or continuing role, experiencing postpartum depression and anxiety, or trying to recover from loss. You might want to heal wounds left from past traumas and gain insight into how you can move forward. Together we can embark on a journey of healing, knowledge, and self-discovery.

I am an EMDR trained, trauma informed, anti-racist, contemplative therapist with an MS degree in Clinical Psychology.
All of us develop patterns of behavior based on survival instincts from the moment we are born. Ideally, as we mature our survival skills would mature as well and that's often not the case. A behavior that was successful in the past can hurt us in the present and keep us repeating the same self limiting patterns over and over. Everything we do has elements of relationship. Professional, romantic, platonic, familial, athletic, and academic relationships make up our societal existence. By learning how to be in relationship with ourselves we learn how to be in relationship with others.
