Struggle with depression, anxiety, flashbacks, insomnia or low self-esteem?
Hi! I'm Diane Semerak and I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), Certified EMDR therapist, and Certified Medical Support-Clinical Hypnotherapist. For 20 years, I've studied and provided assessment and treatment of complex PTSD along with other mental health issues. I focus on Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy and related therapies to help you move beyond the disruptions of old and new trauma.
Please note: this is a time of very high demand and from time to time, my practice will be full. If I do not have availability I will be unable to accommodate appointment requests. When this occurs, I can set up a phone appointment for a free 30 minute consultation, in order to make referrals or place you on a wait list to notify you when I have availability again.
As a trauma specialist with a holistic perspective, I integrate mindfulness, listen with compassion, explore trauma reactions, and teach coping skills--all to promote your recovery from the effects of early abuse, attachment wounds or later trauma. We create a treatment plan together, so you can learn to increase self-empowerment as you decrease symptoms and desensitize memories. At my office in Glenwood Springs, Colorado, I offer both in-person and televideo counseling sessions on a secure HIPAA-compliant platform. Masks may be required for in-person sessions.
If your focus is personal growth, I also offer hypnotherapy to help you achieve goals, release unwanted habits or change lifestyle, and provide medical support (with a doctor's prescription) as appropriate. Some people use hypnotherapy for spiritual growth or sports performance. Hypnotherapy is not billed to insurance because it may exceed allowable time limits.
