Nathan Staley, MA LPC, EMDR Certified Therapist
I focus on the ‘working alliance’ between counselor and client, not merely a conversation, but a powerful space of unconditional personal acceptance, building relevant goals, fostering honest curiosity, and exploring new perspectives. As your counselor, I’d like to help you feel equipped and empowered toward meaningful change. My goal is to be open minded with therapeutic approaches that can work, sometimes it resembles the structure of Cognitive Behavior Therapy for anxiety, sometimes it may be more about the creativity of two people truly communicating (or learning what that looks like) and working on a problem than a technique.
As a certified EMDR therapist, I offer a fascinating therapy approach that treats nightmares, flashbacks, hypervigilance, depression, and other symptoms of trauma with the help of eye movements. It’s a tool I’ve used in a variety of settings (including telehealth) to reprocess disturbing thoughts, images, and sensations. Read more: emdria.org
Therapy can and often should be challenging, but I look forward to standing with you as a clinical ally for healing and growth. I appreciate the opportunity to help.
