EMDR Therapy for Men
GAVIN CROSS, LMFT
Put your anxiety from your past where it belongs. Behind you.
I empower men to experience peace and potential through EMDR therapy.
Feeling trapped by past traumas or relentless anxiety can overshadow even the brightest achievements in life. Perhaps you’ve tried to shake off that shadow, convincing yourself it’s just stress or a phase that will pass. Yet, each day, you find yourself overshadowed by a sense of unease, making it hard to focus and robbing you of the peace you deserve at night. It’s as if your past experiences have woven themselves into the very fabric of your present, affecting your relationships and how you view yourself. You’re ready for change but unsure where to turn.
What is EMDR Therapy?
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) offers a beacon of hope for those caught in such struggles. Unlike traditional therapy that often requires you to verbalize painful memories, EMDR focuses on healing through action. In our sessions, you’ll engage in a reflective process, focusing on specific events while I guide you through a series of eye movements or hand taps. This process is designed to stimulate your brain’s natural healing abilities, allowing you to process these memories in a way that’s similar to the problem-solving stage of sleep.
Imagine lifting the weight of those experiences, freeing yourself from the chains of your past. EMDR empowers your brain to rewrite the narrative of your memories, diminishing their hold over you and replacing them with a newfound sense of peace. This transformative journey can help dissolve the barriers to your happiness, allowing you to embrace life with a clear mind and a lighter heart.

Sometimes our emotions feel like a train that can’t slow down. I’ll lead you through a few techniques of EMDR to help you practice soothing the emotions that are coming up for you, so you can return to feeling like yourself again.
What kinds of problems do you help with?
I help men navigate hard-to-manage emotions, and individuals recover from difficult past experiences. I specialize in EMDR therapy for men, a structured approach to working through trauma safely, as well as Restoration Therapy to help individuals and couples work through difficult emotions.
How much do sessions cost?
My fee is $220/session. I occasionally can accommodate sliding scale appointments. I offer super bills for out-of-network insurance reimbursement. Call our care coordinator with any questions about fee.
What do you like about being a therapist?
Making the decision to enter therapy is hard. I enjoy helping ease that transition for clients. In the chaos of the world around us, I think we all just want a safe place where we can be fully ourselves. I find joy in providing such a place for those who need to talk or process.
