Director, LEAD THERAPIST AND Consultant AT SEIYU I.H.T.
licensed psychotherapist/counselor in NY, CA, MA, VT, NH & Certified Life Coach
Thank you for finding your way here.
My name is Tony. I started Seiyu I.H.T. to create a variety of ways for helping you find and experience joy despite the pain which naturally exists in our world. Our mind and bodies are whole, and we can experience that easier if we focus our intention on taking action toward meaningful living, with sincerity. My hope for this practice is to help people discover tools for doing so with as few barriers as possible, and to assist other therapists and helpers in facilitating this.
The approaches that I take as a psychotherapist, coach, and consultant are influenced by a lifetime of connection to nature, socioeconomic and multicultural issues, punk music and culture, artistic expression, military/first response culture, CAM & Integrative Medicine, and spirituality. I am a military veteran of Operation Enduring Freedom, former ESL teacher, a college professor, member of a bi-cultural/bi-lingual family, and promoter of a Whole Person approach to wellness. I am also the originator of Therapeutic Fly Fishing & EMDR (TF-EMDR) and creator of The Seiyu-Zuri Method of TF-EMDR, and view fitness of mind, body, and spirit equally important to a person's health and success.
I am familiar with the ups and downs of the human experience, and know so well how difficult it can be to stay focused and afloat in a chaotic world. However, in the center of all of this we have an opportunity to connect with desire and find our truest selves. When we see that self with sincerity and understanding, we are capable of handling and accomplishing so much. It is why the human race has existed for so long! Working together, we can harness this truth for you to thrive in your experience.
What is therapy?
The processes of psychotherapy and coaching are about you and your goals, plain and simple.
Seiyu I.H.T. focuses on the use of EMDR Therapy. a specialized form of psychotherapy that is evidence-based for healing from trauma quickly and effectively. Yet, is not just for trauma. Use EMDR to alleviate anxiety, stress, insecurities, phobias, aid in smoking cessation, decrease problem substance use, managing chronic pain, and more without the use of medication. EMDR can also be used as a coaching framework for things such as performance enhancement, to improve creativity or excel in areas such as athletics, business, and relationships.
.EYE MOVEMENT DESESITIZATION & REPROCESSING (EMDR)
As the most evidence-based trauma therapy, EMDR is useful for addressing whatever trauma might impact - which includes being able to lessen anxiety, address behavior change, decrease addictive urges, enhance personal performance, creativity, motivation, and most other things. Yet, you still might be wondering...

Intensive + Weekly Therapy & Coaching
Psychotherapy and coaching are available for ongoing support or as an intensive half or full-day retreat. Tony infuses Buddhist oriented therapy models (ACT, Morita Therapy) with EMDR, Mindfulness, trauma sensitive yoga, reiki/energy medicine, inner child/Ego States techniques, somatic therapy, and Attachment-Focused approaches to help you grow and achieve your goals.
What is the right approach for you? While supportive weekly therapy is the right fit for some people, others want or need results faster and choose to schedule an intensive.
Contact Tony today about an EMDR Intensive Retreat or weekly EMDR sessions, and learn more
