Bio

Tim Ervin: Licensed Clinical Professional ​Counselor, EMDR Trained Therapist, Board ​Certified Coach, & Certified Hypnotherapist.


My approach

One of the most innovative uses of EMDR therapy is performance ​enhancement by decreasing fear, stress, and anxiety related to performance. ​Performance could include work, sports, fitness, speeches, and sexual ​health. The therapy helps the brain think in a healthier, more adaptive way ​by removing blocks and helping the person to tap into inner strengths.

Know Your Triggers

Past stress and bad memories may impact ​your brain’s ability to regulate your fear ​response to current situations. These past ​experiences are more than just emotional ​responses. Bad past experiences also have ​a physiological response. Past traumatic ​events can change how both your body ​and brain work.


What some clients have experienced

Happy young people having fun together
Airplane flying

John had a traumatic flying experience when he was young ​and as a result developed a fear of flying. For decades he had ​to pass on many vacations with family and friends. Also, for ​decades he tried to cure his fear of flying without success. ​After 3 months of EMDR therapy he was on a plane and last ​known doing much traveling.


Interview

Kelly, a recent college grad, was struggling with awkward ​interviews. She became very self-conscious and felt like she’ll ​never get a job. We worked on her confidence with interviews ​and soon became more comfortable with job interviews.


Adam had some struggles in the bedroom. After eliminating ​any medical possibilities, we began working on the source of ​the psychological and emotion hurdles. He soon was happy to ​report that things have greatly improved and continue to go ​well.


Josh, a minor league athlete, suddenly developed panic ​attacks about his sport. He could no longer play his sport in ​the prime of his career. After a few sessions his panic attacks ​subsided and after some time off is now back at his sport.


woman having depression bipolar disorder trouble

Susan was feeling ambiguous about her marriage, life, and ​career. Something was making her unhappy. We identified ​some potential causes and are currently focusing EMDR ​treatment on those causes. She has begun to get perspective ​and is feeling less confused about her life purpose.


Motivational Speaker with Headset Performing on Stage, Back View

Eugene got a promotion at work that required public ​speaking. Unfortunately, he would rather get a “root canal ​then speak in public”. We used a combination of ​hypnotherapy and EMDR Resource tapping to address the ​fear and where it came from. His anxiety had decreased and ​is getting more comfortable with each public event.


Take the first step towards positive change and ​emotional well-being. Embrace the ​transformative journey of psychotherapy today, ​because your mental health matters.

Reach out, connect, and invest in your ​growth and happiness. Together, we can ​navigate towards a healthier and more ​fulfilling life.
