Announcement icon I now only offer video/telehealth, prefer using doxy.me/sbaird to meet with you, but may also use zoom. I can do EMDR intensive outdoors.
Practicing since 1999, I have extensive experience treating PTSD/trauma (sexual abuse/assault, partner violence, etc.) and anxiety with EMDR. I am pursuing sexual health specialization and am comfortable working with consenting non-monogamy, transgender, and am kink-aware. I enjoy treating other helping professionals. We use your strengths to overcome current and historical obstacles. I'm an EMDRIA Approved Consultant (for clinicians). Google emdria.org for more info. Also, now offering intensive EMDR sessions. I have a SMALL 2-day a week practice. If you need more support, please contact a local full service mental health clinic.
Certified EMDR Therapist & Consultant, I use EMDR to help people heal from trauma and anxiety, with the ultimate goal of actualizing healthy sexuality. I can offer day-long intensive EMDR treatment to stable working professionals (private pay, Sun-Mon: stephaniebairdlmhc.wordpress.com for info). PLEASE CHECK TO MAKE SURE I TAKE YOUR INSURANCE.
