Practice Information
I believe there is an inner wisdom in each person. If this quiet, inner place of truth and understanding is heard, respected and trusted it will guide healing. I encourage people to have faith in themselves and their own healing process.

I have been practicing psychotherapy for 20 years. I treat adult individuals in an atmosphere of respect and privacy. I focus on educating people to understand themselves and learn skills to empower them to take charge of their lives. I teach clear, effective, communication skills and assertiveness to help people stand up for themselves and improve relationships.

To facilitate more complete healing I like a team approach combining nutrition, massage, acupuncture yoga and tai chi. Although I am in private practice I work with a network of practitioners.

I specialize in treating trauma whether it is single incident trauma or chronic, repeated trauma. I use body oriented approaches to psychotherapy such as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Focusing as well as Ego State Therapy because I find them to produce quicker and more complete results.

I teach Focusing Classes in my office for a nominal fee so people can learn mindfulness and self awareness skills to use on their own outside of therapy sessions. I provide monthly practice sessions free of charge.

I have been going to Eleanor for quite some time and have found her style of therapy to be extremely helpful. She provides a very safe and non-judgemental environment which allows you to face your issues, anxieties, memories, questions at your own pace. I find her focusing technique extremely helpful and productive in pin pointing what is at the center of my anxieties. By making room for all of your emotions or feelings about different issues you are able to separate and give attention to the most important issue at hand. I have suffered from severe depression and post traumatic stress and I have seen tremendous growth in both areas. I would highly recommend Eleanor Buscher to men and women alike.
