My name is Laurie Kimmel. I am a psychotherapist with nearly 30 years of experience treating children, adolescents, adults, and seniors.
My areas of specialization include the treatment of:
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Certified EMDR Therapist (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing.)
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) Certified with BTI (Behavior Therapy Institute) to provide ER-P (Exposure and Response Prevention) and CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.)
This website is designed for people who are considering entering therapy, as well as all those who want to know more about me but may have been afraid to ask. (Actually, all questions are encouraged.)
There are six sections. The page we are on is my Home Page which provides a general outline to the entire website. Experience provides specifics about my background as a therapist; my training, and general approach to treatment. My Practice brings up the present; the services I offer, my practice location, etc.
EMDR: What is it and How Does it Work? is a brief introduction to a fascinating approach to resolving unprocessed traumas or "unfinished business" lingering from the past. I have been certified since 2001 in this dynamic therapy which has proven to be an invaluable tool for helping my patient's resolve the "unfinished business" of yesteryear. Resources are favorite websites of mine, and Contact is how to reach me.
