Melissa Martin, LCMHC , Master of Arts in Counseling; Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor
Do you experience distress related to past or current events? Have you had an experience which affects your health, perhaps leaving you fearful of pursuing further medical or dental treatment? As an EMDR trained clinician, I provide evidence-based therapy for clients who experience present day symptoms (e.g., fear, distress, anxiety, sleeplessness) related to past events. I offer 90 minute EMDR therapy sessions to assist clients in "getting past the past" so they may show up as their best selves everyday. EMDR therapy may be used as your primary therapy or as an adjunct therapy should you already be engaged in counseling. EMDR therapy does not require talking in detail about the distressing issue or completing homework between sessions. Further, rather than focusing on changing the emotions, thoughts, or behaviors resulting from the distressing issue, EMDR allows your brain to resume its natural healing process. Together we will pursue a reduction in your symptoms by creating an EMDR therapy treatment plan based upon what is important to you.
