Timothy Sosin, NCC, LPC


EMDR Certified Therapist

Online Therapy

About Me

My name is Tim Sosin, and I am an EMDRIA certified trauma therapist and licensed professional counselor. I am equipped and ready to walk with you through the trauma healing process so that you can regain the freedom to write your own story rather than it being authored by your trauma, developmental wounds and adverse experiences. If you feel like your life is inhibited by your past in any way, I would be honored to provide you with a personally tailored intensive trauma healing experience. Within the realm of EMDR, I specialize in attachment-focused EMDR and the repairing of relational wounds. If you feel like your trauma is deep within the fabric of your identity, my approach to healing may be a good fit. Since trauma is such a common denominator within the lives of so many, I have devoted my career to trauma liberation, relational reconciliation and the recovery process. Everything I do is informed by my desire to see people break through the barriers holding them back. In order help you break barriers, I have equipped myself for the journey with you, and. I look forward to meeting with you and would be glad to answer any questions you have about the trauma healing process at Birthstone.
