Personalized Attention for All Your Needs

I currently see clients through telehealth in Texas and telehealth and in-person in California.

I'm Scott Donovan, and I'm here to stand by you as you navigate through life's challenges. Whether you're contending with depression, anxiety, PTSD, trauma, or relationship issues, if you're prepared to embark on a journey of positive change and committed to establishing and achieving weekly goals through therapy, we could be a great match.

I specialize in individual, family, couples, and group therapy. I provide telehealth sessions for clients in Texas and offer both telehealth and in-person sessions for clients in California. I accept IEHP (California), Lyra (California and Texas), and cash payments (California and Texas).

Isn't it time to embrace the changes you've been yearning for? Take that crucial first step towards a brighter tomorrow by reaching out to schedule a session with me.

I am trained in Trauma and am currently trained in EMDR therapy. 

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a type of therapy used to help people process traumatic memories, reduce anxiety, and improve overall mental health. It is based on the idea that traumatic experiences can be “stuck” in the brain and cause psychological distress. EMDR uses a series of eye movements to help people reprocess their memories and work through their emotions.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) was developed by Francine Shapiro to help individuals resolve the effects of recurring distressing events. EMDR therapy is very effective for traumas and other conditions.

EMDR consists of 8 phases that focus on helping clients identify their triggers, understand the impact of trauma, and develop coping strategies. This therapy has been proven to be effective in reducing symptoms of PTSD, depression, anxiety, phobias, and other mental health conditions. It can also provide long-term benefits such as improved self-esteem and better relationships with others.

My goal is to help people who have been through tough and painful experiences, especially in their childhood. I use different methods to help people heal and feel better.

One of the main ways I help is through a special kind of therapy called EMDR, which stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. This technique helps people process and move past their traumatic memories.

I also focus on something called attachment. This means I help people understand and improve their relationships with others, especially if they had difficult or unhealthy relationships when they were young.

Another way I help is through somatic therapy. This means we pay attention to how our body feels and reacts, as trauma can sometimes be stored in our bodies. By understanding these physical responses, we can work on releasing the pain and stress held inside.

Inner child work is another important part of my therapy. This means we look at the younger version of you and address the needs and wounds from your childhood. This helps you feel more whole and complete as an adult.

My goal is to provide a safe and supportive space for you to explore and heal from your trauma. I understand how hard it can be to face these issues, and I am here to support you every step of the way. Together, we can work towards a healthier, happier, and more peaceful life.

I am compassionate and understanding. If you are struggling with something and you are willing to make a change and work on that change, then let's discuss it and see if we are a good fit, send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you and hope that we can work towards your goals for something different.
If this sounds like you, take the next step and contact us.
I look forward to hearing from you and possibly working with you.
