Dr. Lissa Perkins, PsyD


Online Therapy

About Me

I specialize in using EMDR and other evidence-based techniques to help resolve the trauma, stress, and relationship issues that can trigger or worsen pain and other chronic health conditions. I will work with you to make positive changes in areas that are often long-standing and seem impossible to change. Rather than learning to just “manage” your pain or illness, we will work together to support you in resolving past traumas and current conflicts. Through these techniques you can become aware and experience and express those feelings in healthy ways. EMDR is supported by research as being helpful to people who have post-traumatic stress disorder, as well as Migraines, Fibromyalgia, and Medical Trauma.
