We are so glad you are here! Everyone needs help sometimes. This is our invitation to partner with you in the healing process of counseling and EMDR therapy. We offer both traditional weekly therapy and EMDR Intensive (multiple sessions in one day).

Professional Affiliation

EMDR International Association (EMDRIA) – is a professional association where EMDR practitioners and EMDR researchers seek the highest standards for the clinical use of EMDR Therapy. EMDR Therapy is designated as an effective treatment by the American Psychiatric Association, the World Health Organization (WHO), the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and Department of Defense, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and many other international health agencies. This powerful psychotherapy approach has helped over an estimated two million people of all ages relieve many types of psychological distress.

Bonnie Barclay, LCSW is certified in EMDR, an Approved Consultant, and a member of EMDRIA. The EMDR training level of the clinical team is listed in each bio.


What is EMDR?

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of traumatic or distressing life experiences, both past and recent events or experiences.

I am so glad you are here! Everyone needs help sometimes, myself included. This is my invitation to partner with you in the healing process of EMDR therapy. Whether you work with me or another member of the Creekside team, we are here to help.
Going from STUCK to EMPOWERED: stepping into the version of yourself you know is inside of you!!
Trauma or distressing events are usually at the core of being STUCK. This can be big T traumas or “little T” events.

In my 20+ years, I have found it’s often what is referred to as the “little T” traumas that can hold us back: The kid in 7th grade bullying us, wrecking our bike and a parent saying, “you are so stupid.”  These seemingly insignificant incidences can have a huge impact on how we show up today in our relationships, family and work. Most of my clients are blown away at how simple something seemed, but how impactful it was.

EMDR helps you access the brain’s natural healing process to reprocess faulty information stored at the time of the event. Hope and Healing. A Way Forward.
