Exhausted. Stuck. That pit in your stomach.

You keep re-living that memory over and over again.

Your muscles are tense, you cannot seem to get your body to relax. Your emotions are on hyperdrive

It’s hard to focus, you are overwhelmed and unsure if you will ever find that inner peace again.

You may have thoughts like…

  • “Why did this happen to me?”
  • “Will I ever be able to move on from this?”
  • “Why does this still have control over my life?”

If you have these or similar thoughts and feelings then past trauma continues to play a major role in your current life.  

Living with trauma is exhausting and takes a toll on every aspect of your life.

You want to move on.  You want to not think about it anymore.  You do not want to relive these memories, but you can’t seem to shake them.  

But the truth is you can move on.

You can be free of these thoughts. You don’t have to keep reliving the memories and you can take back control.

I am here to help!

Therapy, specifically EMDR therapy, is an evidenced based model that has proven to help clients rewire their brain to process past events and truly move on with their lives.  

Whether it is a single-incident trauma or recurring trauma, EMDR helps get at the root of where your brain gets stuck and enables you to take back control over your life.

By finding your “stuck point” and working through it, you can finally start to truly heal and move forward.

Self-care and best selves.

Once your brain and body is able to move on:

  • Your thoughts will no longer center on the trauma
  • The memories of it will become less clear and sharp in your mind
  • Your body will relax and you will be fully present in your life again

You can actually enjoy the day without your mind constantly thinking back to the trauma.

 You’ll be free to wake up knowing your life is now better, and you can actually look forward to it!

You can experience life better. It just takes the right guide to help you make it happen. 

I can be your guide.

It just takes reaching out to get started. 

If you are ready to be free of the trauma taking over your life & experience life differently, then I'm ready to help!

Welcome to

Cultivating Courage Psychological Services

Hi! I'm Elizabeth

I have one goal: to help you reach your goals as quickly as possible through therapy.

I know reaching can be scary, but it can be the best step in experiencing life differently.

Why should you choose to do EMDR with me?

  • I am highly trained and educated in EMDR so you can lean on my years of experience
  • I have years of leadership experience where I used my knowledge to train other clinicians
  • My counseling is goal oriented so you can know from day one that you’re getting on the right track


My fee for EMDR is $250 per 45-50 minute session.

Like most private mental health practitioners in New York, I am  considered an “out of network” provider. This means that some of my clients pay fully out of pocket, and others pay our fee up-front and then receive partial reimbursement from their insurance provider in accordance with their out-of-network insurance benefits.

Depending on your insurance policy, some (not all) policies will offer partial reimbursement to you for out-of-network services. We can check these benefits for you at the time of your consultation call.

In our experience, reimbursement is common and most of our clients are reimbursed for 50 to 100% for the cost of their sessions if they have out-of-network mental health coverage.

We have partnered with Reimbursify for you to easily submit your claims for out-of-network health insurance reimbursement from your smartphone. Reimbursify will allow for you to get reimbursed at a quicker rate than if you submitted these claims yourself.

Yes! EMDR is actually just as effective when done online, so you can experience the exact same benefits.

Love this question!  We will spend time getting to know you better, understanding your priorities and crafting a plan to help you reach your goals. This is also a great time to ask any follow up questions you have from the consultation call.

We really believe in working ourselves out of a job and setting you or your family up for success.  This process is quick for some and takes longer for others, depending on what you want to work on, your goals and level of motivation.  This is a great question to ask in your consultation call or in your initial sessions with us.  As we get to know you better we can make better predictions of timelines.
