Services
Psychotherapy EMDR Hypnotherapy Neurofeedback Art Psychotherapy ****************************** EMDR is one of my most special services as, in addition to Psychotherapy, it relieves so many issues in a brief period of time, compared to traditional therapies. (Such as PTSD, and other traumas, Anxiety (including phobias and Panic Disorder), Addiction and much more. As a Marriage Family Therapist, I find it beneficial to work, when possible, and when desired, in a relational way to support each other. (This is of course, only when the individual coming in desires that). ****************************** ART PSYCHOTHERAPY is a special kind of therapy in that it not only helps an individual (doesn't matter the age) access information that is difficult to talk about. It is especially effective with families where communication might be an issue and there are different ages involved. ****************************** HYPNOTHERAPY is special in that the client might respond better to that, if they choose. The client is always in control in this effective method of incorporating more positive messages and avenues that are beneficial for a more fulfilling life. ****************************** NEUROFEEDBACK is not just used for disorders (such as depression, sleep problems and ADHD) but also to help "any" individual try to achieve OPTIMAL BRAIN FUNCTIONING. Whether this be to function even better than you are now in sports, your job and other areas of your life. We're all unique and I am glad that I have these different, effective, options for my clients.

Approximately half of Dr. Copitch's practice involves children and families. The other half is devoted to individual therapy. And, as Dr. Copitch often jokes, "the third half of my work is devoted to school consultations, business consultations, and corporate trainings."
