We offer counseling, EMDR, andNeurofeedback therapies to adults, teens, and children.

We often work with PTSD,  anxiety, depression, difficulty in relationships, ADHD, OCD, post-concussive symptoms, addiction, and attachment issues. Sometimes symptoms come from difficult phases of life and sometimes they come from a life-time of challenges. We can work through both.

Symptoms can come from a stressful phases of life, a single traumatic event, or a series of traumatic events. We can work through any one of these scenarios. All of our clinicians are trauma-informed; understanding the impact of trauma on the brain, how to pace sessions to insure client safety, and how to assess for flooding, overwhelm, dissociation, or risk of harm. Our number one job is to make sure people are safe and that this process is safe. 

WHAT WILL THE PROCESS LOOK LIKE?

Free 20-minute Consultation

This is a way to be sure of finding the best fit. We’ll ask about your experience with counseling in the past, what you liked, and what you didn’t like. We’ll also ask about what prompted you to seek counseling services, and about the goals you have.

Get Background Information

Before we can develop a plan, we’ll have you fill out several assessments and have you share your background information. Based on our what we see in the history, plus the presenting concerns, we’ll figure out where to start. Is this a situational issue? Is this a pervasive problem? Is it environmental or organic?

Recommend Treatment

Together, we’ll decide which approach to take. We will consider traditional talk therapy, EMDR, or neurofeedback. You are always in the driver’s seat of your care. You decide what feels best to address the goals and outcomes you desire.

Build Relationships

We spend time getting to know you – because until you feel safe, you aren’t able to be vulnerable. This process can be incredibly difficult and it’s important to go at the right pace for the individual. Every client is different and we’ll gauge the pace together.

We build a custom approach to treatment that may include, but is not limited to:

We use talk therapy as we start counseling, whether we end up doing EMDR, or neurofeedback, we’ll start here. It helps us understand where you’re coming from and what your starting point is. If you are simply in a difficult season of life (parenting challenges, phase of life changes, anxiety over a new job, difficulty with your relationships, depression, etc.), then we’ll start here. If what you are experiencing is more complex, we may look at additional options for care.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. It’s a mouthful, but it’s a brain-based therapy that helps break the emotional connection we have to beliefs or memories. If you have an internal sense that “I’m worthless”, then we’re going to look at the memories that have reinforced this belief. We’ll start with the more recent events, look at the worst memories, and we’ll float back as far as you can to the first time you felt that way. These memories hurt and can almost feel imprinted on you. With EMDR, the memory will always be there, but it won’t always sting.

After getting a better understanding of your life and circumstances, if we find there is a pervasive or chronic condition, such as a life-long battle with depression, anxiety, OCD, or addiction, or if you have early childhood trauma and you have always had strong emotional responses to stress, then we’ll look at using neurofeedback to help regulate your brain. Your struggle might not be a “you” issue. It might be a brain issue.
