Mr. Eric Jimenez, LMHC

Preferred Name: Eric

EMDR Certified Therapist

About Me

I am trained as a scientist-practitioner and concentrate on the neurobiology of mental health. My early career began in corrections and forensics serving children with conduct disorder, adults with psychopathic personalities, and inmates transitioning back to their families and into society. Thereafter I began to treat clients with chronic mental illnesses such as schizophrenia, severe depression and bipolar disorder. Educating families and helping the chronically ill develop independent living skills were primary concentrations. Later I worked with children and families serving in home-based therapy and therapeutic foster care programs. I currently see both children and adults and much of my work is concentrated on trauma and addiction. Helping people cope with new realities and rehabilitating lives to experience success is both a personal and professional passion.
