Kay Simmeth EMDR TherapyI’ve been working as a psychotherapist and life coach for over 20 years and my underlying belief is that people have the ability to move toward wholeness and well-being.

I began in private practice in 1993, and since that time have worked with adults, adolescents, children, parents and families. Over the years I have worked with people struggling with a variety of challenges from anxiety and trauma—both big and small–to peak performance which is being one’s best self. I’ve also worked in a variety of settings from community clinics to psychiatric hospitals, which have strengthened and broadened me as a psychotherapist and counselor.

Working with EMDR therapy over the last 7 years I have seen significant results in clients dealing with anxiety, trauma and other issues that hold them back from life success. I am a certified EMDR practitioner and approved EMDR consultant, and all members of my team are trained in EMDR therapy as well. Because of the success I see in clients using this method of therapy, I whole-heartedly pursue continuing education and consultation in this area.

I thoroughly enjoy my work! It is a privilege to come alongside my clients, to work together with them to overcome life’s roadblocks, and to see them live more fulfilling lives.
