    Methods:

    Research in the field has shown again and again that one of the most important factors in the outcome of therapy is the strength of the therapeutic relationship. This means that as you pick a therapist, picking someone you trust, enjoy, and feel comfortable with is key to the success of your therapy. There is no shortage of counseling theories in the field and most therapists have had exposure to a variety. Ideally eclectic practice comes from learning multiple theories in depth and applying them skillfully according to individual needs and client preferences. Our Therapists draw from EMDR, Family Systems Theory, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Emotionally Focused Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, PersonCentered Theories, and The Daring Way™. We go beyond trauma-informed practice to being specifically trained in EMDR - a theory endorsed by a number of well known organizations for the treatment of trauma. All of our Therapists are either certified, trained, or scheduled to be trained in EMDR.

    Our Therapists use therapeutic relationship, psychoeducation, theories, and creative experiences to help clients build insight, take action, and continue the process of becoming who they want to be. Practically this sounds like:

    • Building coping skills, inner resources, and resilience
    • Learning to practice being healthy individuals in health connection with others
    • Increasing emotional intelligence in order to connect with self and others
    • Identifying and building strengths in the present
    • Helping clients tell their story in a way that empowers and leads to a desired future story
    • Learning new ways of thinking, being, and acting
    • Explore parts of themselves and live from a more peaceful and integrated self
    • Decrease distress, reprocess events, and increase adaptive beliefs
    • Address shame and build resilience, connection, and joy
    • Use EMDR to process difficult memories and trauma that contribute to symptoms or feeling stuck

    PLEASE NOTE: We occasionally have openings to work with adolescents 15+, but we typically refer out unless we appear a particularly good fit (i.e. the client is highly motivated to be in therapy and looking for EMDR Therapy specifically).


    “I am here to keep becoming truer, more beautiful versions of myself again and again forever. To be alive is to be in a perpetual state of revolution. Whether I like it or not, pain is the fuel of revolution...emotions are the fire that turns me to gold. I will continue to become only if I resist extinguishing myself a million times a day. If I can sit in the fire of my own feelings, I will keep becoming.”
