Bridger Falkentien. LPC
I believe that we are wired to connect with each other in deep and meaningful ways throughout all of our lives. While ideally this would happen free of pain and sadness, most of us aren’t that lucky. From one single event to a lifetime of pain and suffering, I work with people all across the map to help them shed the scars of their pain and embrace the warmth and beauty of their best self. With total compassion and an unconditional posture, I seek each person’s flourishing in every moment I get to spend with them.
It is our vision to bring healing a relief to those suffering from the symptoms of their trauma. Through this podcast, we will provide a free resource for new and seasoned therapists to continue learning and stay up to date on the latest research, protocols, and approaches to EMDR Therapy. we have such a passion for EMDR Therapy and we hope to see the world of counseling continue to be transformed with this tool.
We have both experienced EMDR Therapy as the client, as well as the therapist. As a result of these transformational experiences, we have committed our professional practices to spreading the healing power of EMDR Therapy around our community.
We do this through therapy for our clients, consultation for other therapists, support groups, and now this podcast. Creating a podcast seemed like a fun and efficient way to reach several therapists seeking further information and support as they implement this tool in their therapy practices. We already enjoy discussing these practices over coffee, so we added a couple of microphones and decided to make it public!
