EMDR Certified Therapist

Online Therapy

About Me

Welcome! I'm Brad Galvin, a Seattle native. I specialize in EMDR intensives - 90-minute to 3-hour sessions - designed to heal deeply-rooted habit patterns and the negative effects of unresolved trauma and addictive disorders including substance abuse, relationship addiction, and disordered gambling. With over 5,000 hours' experience using EMDR, I can effectively tailor treatment to your unique needs, while gently working with protector parts of you that may have hindered your progress in past therapy. An IFS-informed psychotherapist, I seek to honor all parts of you as we do the deep work of healing old pain.
