Stepping Stones Counseling by Alicia Harris offers life-changing mental health treatment, provided with compassion and skill.
WHO WE CAN HELP
We specialize in EMDR Therapy (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), an evidence-based, highly effective treatment. Our clients include adolescents and adults with trauma, depression, anxiety, borderline personality disorder, dissociative disorders, bipolar disorder, ADHD, domestic violence survivors, and those suffering from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). Through EMDR Therapy, clients identify the root causes of their symptoms and clear traumas that lead to depression, anxiety, and dissociation.
This is an LGBTQIA Affirming Practice.
As an EMDR Trained Therapist, Alicia treats the root of depression, anxiety, PTSD, and Complex PTSD (Borderline Personality Disorder) in a trauma-sensitive, empathic manner. EMDR Therapy resolves issues of concern while minimizing the re-traumatizing effects that are common in other types of therapy. Clients find Alicia to be warm, encouraging, knowledgeable, and supportive. She honors client strengths. EMDR Therapy is her primary modality of treatment, in addition to Mindfulness, and Creative Expression. Research shows that clients complete treatment in 1/2 the time of traditional talk therapy, and require less to no psychiatric medications at the end. Body pain decreases during treatment, as well.
