I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified EMDR Therapist, National Certified Counselor and Certified Chemical Dependency Specialist. I have twenty years of experience in the assessment and treatment of individuals and couples. I have maintained a private practice for over twelve years. I have written articles about emotional health and given presentations about mental health and wellness.
I utilize many approaches in my work with clients. As a trauma and relational therapist, I primarily use a model developed by Pia Mellody, which focuses on healing childhood and relational trauma.
I am trained and certified as an Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapist. I utilize this trauma model with clients who are experiencing Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or developmental trauma.
I offer private counseling to individuals and couples seeking healing from developmental trauma, relational trauma and codependence. I specialize in treating trauma, PTSD, codependence, grief and loss issues, anxiety and depression.
