Suzanne Muirheid founded Calm Mind Counseling Center with the goal of providing innovative and effective care to individuals struggling with trauma and other mental health issues. In the over 10 years of providing therapy, Suzanne found that most of her clients had experienced some type of trauma that continued to impact their overall well-being. In most cases, the trauma(s) had gone untreated and had taken the form of something else like anxiety or depression. In her efforts to provide her clients with the best treatment possible, Suzanne trained extensively in trauma-informed care and other effective therapeutic techniques.
As a Certified Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) clinician, Suzanne regularly integrates this technique into her work as she has seen it prove effective for many of her clients in a significant way. EMDR works with the brain’s natural healing process to resolve issues at their roots. When a problem is treated at its most base level, symptoms fade quickly and are unlikely to return. In partnership with EMDR, Suzanne will often integrate other techniques such as Ego State Therapy and Mindfulness. Suzanne’s style is holistic and strength-based in that she highlights her client’s existing strengths and supports to foster resilience. She works in partnership with clients to establish treatment goals and actualize the desired change.
