About Me

Welcome! My name is Eric Hoyme and I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor specializing in treating trauma and PTSD. I have been practicing psychotherapy for 13 years and have worked in psychiatric hospitals, substance abuse treatment centers, and private practice. I am an EMDR Therapy specialist. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy is a gold standard treatment for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) that was developed in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s. It involves attending to both the past and the present in order to resolve problematic emotions. Practicing psychotherapy is my calling. I consider it a gift and privilege to work along side you to facilitate growth and healing! And while it can feel overwhelming to get started addressing long-standing hurts and disappointments, taking this leap can be a life-changing decision. Take courage! You can overcome!
