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 it is possible that from time to time, my practice will be full. This site uses the wording, "Accepting New Clients" linked to the option of online scheduling. However, I may not have availability for several weeks, and be unable to accommodate appointment requests. If so, I am happy to speak with you in a free 30 minute consultation, then make referrals or 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.
