Where is the office located?
Our parking lot is attached to the Chevron gas station parking lot, so pull in, as if you are going to get gas. Also, be careful turning left out of the parking lot when you leave. It is hard to see people who are trying to turn left coming in to the gas station.

Are there other things I should know about your office?
Can I cancel an appointment? Do you have a cancellation policy?
Yes, you can cancel an appointment free of charge as long as you do so 48 hours prior. This policy is strict; everyone gets one “freebie” for illness/emergency per client, after which we will charge you the full fee. This policy is in place so w can fill the spot with someone waiting to see us. Your attendance and consistency are essential to the success of our work.
Group therapy is different. When you are a part of the group, you commit to attending and receive a weekly charge to maintain your membership.

Why come to therapy?
Do you ever notice how much time we give to our careers, families, friendships, and physical health? Yet we neglect the most critical piece of the puzzle, our minds. It isn’t easy to come to therapy and process difficult memories or examine negative experiences. Still, this valuable work will enrich your relationships and mental and emotional well-being. Lasting change is possible when we address the issues that keep us in unhealthy patterns and cycles.
With what age range do you work?
Do you work with men? Women? Couples? Adolescents?

Robyn Trimborn, MA, LPC, works with adults and couples and leads groups for grief and betrayal trauma.
Adriane McCord, the Practicum student, sees adult individuals.

Does anyone cry in front of you?
Of course! Crying is welcome, and tissues are available.
What is EMDR?
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a treatment initially developed to help the brain and nervous system process trauma. It is the most researched modality in all psychotherapy and effectively targets various symptoms, struggles, and issues in your life. For example, we could target low self-worth, understand your limiting beliefs, and help you make sense of how negative experiences confirmed those beliefs.
Once we process those experiences using EMDR techniques, they no longer feel distressing, and our core beliefs align with our true selves and reality.
What are the risks and benefits of doing therapy?
While one of our main goals at WPOATX is to keep you regulated and full of resources that help you feel balanced and improving, therapy can be challenging.
Sometimes, people notice an increase in symptoms before they start to feel the improvement from their work. For example, when you get surgery for something, there is a realization that it will hurt but then be better than when you came in injured.
We do all we can to help create a space that makes therapy something you look forward to and a place where you feel the impact of the work in positive ways.
