Debra J. Schnack, MFT, MA, MFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Sacramento
I believe that participating in therapy can result in many benefits, including a better understanding of your personal goals and values, improved relationships, and resolution of the concerns that led you to seek therapy. My hope is that with sensitivity and compassion, I can help you identify strengths, as well as find solutions to a wide range of psychological issues. Taking a holistic approach to therapy, I am concerned with the long-term well-being of the individual. I work on partner relational issues, anxiety, depression, trauma, and other issues in a safe, supportive, non-judgmental environment.
I believe that problems within a family or couple are best treated by changing the way the "system" works rather than "fixing" just one person. My goal is to help the family or couple function in a healthier manner, without breaching each person's core values, dreams and beliefs.
I am a trained EMDR therapist, working with clients suffering from trauma, PTSD and other emotional problems. With EMDR, therapy can progress more rapidly, providing lasting relief for many types of emotional distress. Scientific research demonstrates EMDR is the most effective and rapid method for healing Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
