My name is Erin Bixel, and as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I specialize in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy. If you are looking for trauma therapy, EMDR can be a highly effective approach that can help you overcome past traumas and move forward with greater peace and confidence.
EMDR is a unique type of therapy that focuses on the connection between your thoughts, emotions, and physical sensations. By using bilateral stimulation, such as eye movements or tapping, EMDR can help you process and integrate traumatic memories in a way that reduces their emotional intensity and helps you develop a more adaptive response to similar situations in the future.
As someone who has worked in the mental and behavioral health fields for years, I have helped diverse populations in a variety of settings, including residential, outpatient, home-based, and school-based. I have additional specialized education and experience working with substance use disorders, autism spectrum disorders, depression, and developmental traumas.
I believe that therapy should be person-centered and tailored to meet your unique needs. That’s why I provide a safe, non-judgmental space where you can explore ineffective patterns of behavior, process thoughts and feelings, practice building healthy relationships, and work towards valued living.
Whether you are struggling with past traumas or simply seeking personal growth and development, I am here to help. As a representative of Outside the Norm Counseling’s professional reputation, I strive to provide high-quality care that can help you overcome your challenges and achieve your goals. Let’s work together to help you live your best life!
