The temporary freeze Gov. Brown implemented to curb the spread of COVID-19 is technically over. However, restrictions are being implemented for those Oregon counties that are in the “extreme risk” category (Deschutes County being included).  In short, I will be doing strictly video/telehealth sessions until the Oregon Health Authority Considers the risk more manageable.  I can make exceptions, but only for emergency situations.  I appreciate your patience as we navigate this difficult time. If this modification does not suit you at this time, please let me know ASAP (you can cancel/reschedule appointments through the portal as well).

EMDR sessions can be conducted via video, and I have found the process to be surprisingly effective.  Please remember psychotherapy is more than the sum of its parts (talk therapy, EMDR, mind-body interventions, therapeutic relationship to your provider, etc.), and continuity of care, self-care and (healthy) routine are key to health and healing.

Below is information on telehealth and apps.
