Announcement icon I am seeing clients online using Doxy.me, a secure health professional site. Video EMDR sessions are resulting in amazing results!
Worried? Anxious? Blue? Feelings can be the result of your situation,or they can be triggered by deeper issues such as attachment, trauma, and unprocessed memories. EMDR "turbocharges" the processing of painful memories. Adults, teens, and children with a history of abuse, trauma, and loss can heal quickly. I also specialize in resolving relationship issues and helping families become stronger. Whether you need help to navigate life transitions or to realize your full potential for emotional growth, therapy is a highly interactive process. Together we develop a plan for treatment involving care and commitment. Feel better!
Symptoms are the expression of emotional distress resulting from attachment issues, trauma, and distorted negative beliefs. Addiction? There are better ways to cope with disturbing feelings. I use a variety of methods to meet your needs, including EMDR; cognitive-behavioral therapy; Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples; and psychodynamic talk.
Thanks to my Auburn clients who voted me Best of the Best Therapist in Auburn for two years! EMDR work is focused and fast. Mindfulness prepares you for growth, and is a tool for life-long stability. Please pick up the phone or send an email. Feel the relief of starting the process of permanent change -- today! Not convinced? Read my website.
