Eileen Trunell - LMHC
After 25 + years of being a therapist, I am certain of one thing... We never stop learning or changing. Sometimes we get stuck in unhealthy patterns of behavior and need assistance in becoming “unstuck”. Depression, anxiety, relationship problems, substance abuse; often, they are symptoms of being stuck in a certain way of thinking. It can be very difficult making a decision to seek help. My job is to work with you to make certain that you are as comfortable as possible with me once you have made the decision to seek change.
I have a wide range of experience in different therapeutic settings, from inpatient substance abuse to working in a school setting with children in crisis. My experience has given me a wealth of knowledge in working in crisis situations as well as in working with families in helping them become whole again. I have training in dealing with trauma and am in the process of becoming a certified EMDR therapist. I am also trained in cognitive and dialectical behavior therapy. I am familiar with 12 step programs as well as working with co dependency however, I will tailor my counseling skills to fit you and your needs.
I understand that beginning the counseling process can be overwhelming and scary, but I will do my best to make the experience a positive one for you. I will facilitate in helping you work towards your own personal and family goals and we will work together to improve your experiences as you move towards a more fulfilling life. Therapy is a very rewarding and positive experience that can both change and enhance your life experience and relationships with others as well as your relationship with yourself. I encourage you to take the first step in what may be one of the best decisions you make! Thank you for viewing my profile and I look forward to seeing you and helping you grow through the therapeutic process.
