Marni Armstrong is a Nationally Certified Counselor and a Licensed Professional Counselor in Colorado. She specializes in treating trauma, in the broadest sense of the word. In doing so, she uses techniques such as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR: EMDRIA.org) and energy techniques such as Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT: emofree.com) and Tapas Acupressure Technique (TAT: tatlife.com). She also uses Motivational Interviewing and Cognitive Behavioral techniques, all built on a foundation of a Rogerian Client-Centered therapeutic relationship. Marni is very respectful of each client’s spiritual beliefs whatever they are, and often utilizes that spirituality in service of the client’s healing. Sometimes, if Roxanne and Jim are also working with a specific client, Marni will consult with one or both of them (always with permission from the client!) about ways we might harmonize healing modalities.
She has a private practice near Academy Blvd and Constitution Ave. on the east side of Colorado Springs. Though she is not on any insurance panels, she will provide you with a receipt which you can submit to your insurance company as an out-of-network provider. She has a sliding fee scale ranging between $25 and $100 per hour. Your fee is determined by your total household income before taxes and the number of persons supported by that income. Unfortunately, she cannot accept Medicaid clients at this time, but she has applied to be on the Medicaid panel and will update this bio if and when she is accepted on it.
Marni holds a Master of Arts degree in Counseling and Human Services from UCCS, a Master of Science degree in Technology for Educators from Johns Hopkins University, and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish from the University of Denver. She is certified in EMDR therapy, is a Consultant-in-Training with the International EMDR Association, and is the Regional Coordinator of the Pikes Peak Regional EMDR network, which meets monthly for networking and continuing education. She is fluent in Spanish, having lived in Argentina for a total of four years. Her experiences living within other cultures have given her some insight into issues of privilege, etc., and she enjoys working with members of cultures different from hers, including Native Americans, Black Americans, Asians, members of the military, the LGBT community and others.
