Hughar Hartzenberg, MA, LPC, LAC
- EMDR Certified Therapist
- EMDRIA Approved Consultant-in-Training
I am a LPC and LAC, as well as an EMDR Certified Therapist and EMDRIA Approved Consultant in Training. I have practiced in the mental health field for over a decade, and have done so as a licensed therapist since 2019. I believe that just because you may find yourself stuck in your past or present pain, these struggles do not have to become your story. I have experience in a variety of theoretical approaches and treatment interventions. I specialize in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and EMDR, and the Adaptive Information Processing and Acceptance and Commitment models serve as the foundation of my therapy. My treatment focus is trauma/ptsd, complex-ptsd, dissociation and related symptoms, co-occurring disorders, depression, grief, anxiety, addictions, and shame. I use interventions to help clients move past current pain and suffering to meaningful and engaged living.
I like to view therapy as two people embarking on a journey. The client knows where they want to go and the therapist has some good ideas about the best routes to get there. Along the way the destination might change, and the client’s needs might change, but ultimately together they figure out how to get to the place where the client wants to be. I love being part of this journey, and I love seeing the beauty and value of life through my client’s eyes when therapy lifts the veil, and helps them become unstuck.
