Dr. Cori J. Calkins, Psy.D.

About Me

In a therapy session, you can expect that I will listen actively to what you have to say and ask questions to help us gain insight into your situation. My training and experience allow me to hear the truth of what is underlying your difficulties. It is important to me that at the end of our session, you will have felt understood and supported, with a sense of hope and direction for improvement. In our work I will always incorporate an understanding of how our brains and bodies respond to stress and trauma. Through a trusting and confidential therapeutic relationship, I will help you to identify and let go of old fears, beliefs, patterns and expectations that may be standing in the way of your ability to enjoy life. Our goal is not perfection, but a greater sense of wholeness.

Education & Experience

I hold a doctorate degree in clinical psychology and work with individuals age 12 and up. My treatment orientation and approach are rooted in Jungian analytical psychology and a relational approach to healing. I work together with you to explore what has been holding you back and where you hope to be going, ultimately improving overall wellness and fulfillment. You will gain an understanding of the relationship patterns and experiences that have influenced your development throughout life. In addition to EMDR, I am trained in advanced dream translation and interpretation, which can be a highly effective tool for transformation.
