Mary Beth Griffis, LMHC

EMDR Certified Therapist

About Me

Clients find my office a place of peace, an optimal environment to gain clarity and improve relationships, as they find a more positive direction. It is important to me to be a trustworthy resource for my clients, placing a high value on facilitating the therapeutic relationship with openness and integrity. I work with clients dealing with emotional, physical and sexual trauma, relational trauma, and medical trauma, ( including abortion) and recovery from the trauma of accidents and criminal acts. Issues of trauma often lead to all sorts of addictions and I work with addictions including sexual addiction. I welcome spirituality as well as spiritual doubt as part of the counseling process.
