EMDR & Brainspotting

I have received specialized training in EMDR and Brainspotting. I typically weave them into our sessions, alternating them with conversational therapy. Both EMDR and Brainspotting are brain/body-based approaches, which means that they offer insights that may be otherwise lost by engaging exclusively our cognitive abilities. I have integrated them successfully both in individual and couples’ counseling and on a variety of issues, including anxiety, depression, PTSD, the effects of repeated oppressive experiences, and low self-esteem.

Please take a look at the following videos and links to learn more about these modalities, and how they work.

EMDR: Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an extensively researched, effective psychotherapy method proven to help people recover from trauma and other distressing and oppressive life experiences, including PTSD, anxiety, depression, and panic disorders.

BRAINSPOTTING: Similarly to EMDR, Brainspotting is useful to free our body from oppressive experiences (another way to refer to “trauma”). It is also used to enhance the performance of athletes and artists. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions about the ways in which these modalities could apply to your particular situation.

My fee for EMDR and/or Brainspotting Services is $150 for a standard session (50-minute long). I accept all major credit cards, and I offer Superbills as an Out-of-Network provider. If you are unfamiliar with Superbills, please read this useful Step-by-Step Guide to Out-of-Network Benefits to learn more about how they work.

Please visit the individual pages for a more detailed description of my services, or give me a call at (858) 255-0895 if you’d like to schedule a free 20-minute video or phone consultation.

Notice to clients and prospective clients:

Under the law, health care providers need to give clients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services.

You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services.

You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service, or at any time during treatment.

If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.

For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, or how to dispute a bill, see your Estimate, or visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises.

I look forward to connecting with you!
