Role: Consultant in Training
I am an EMDR Certified Therapist and EMDR Consultant-in-Training. Along side EMDR, I take a Whole Person approach involving inner child work, ACT, Buddhist psychology, and restorative trauma sensitive meditation and yoga. In addition to training in Attachment-Focused EMDR (AF-EMDR), I have received advanced training the Flash Technique, IFS-informed EMDR, and Ego Stages with EMDR. I am an OEF military veteran and have worked with uniformed service professionals since 2008.
As a therapist, I will help you to tap into your internal resources and connect to your body’s natural healing ability. We’ll work together to shift the impact of stress to help you create pathways allowing a stronger connection to yourself, and to the people and things which matter to you. Doing so with more energy, creativity, and with a sense of freedom. As a fellow human being, I know what it means to fight just to stay afloat. By coming together we will move your ship toward shore.
As a faculty member of the Parnell Institute and as an EMDRIA Consultant in Training, my focus is on supporting therapists who have completed an EMDRIA approved EMDR Basic Training and want to improve proficiency in the Standard EMDR Protocol, the modified protocol for Attachment-Focused EMDR, Connecting the Consequences, the Flash Technique, and others. Consultants in Training can provide up to 15 of the 20 consultation hours required for any trained therapist seeking EMDRIA certification in EMDR.
Thank you for finding me here. I sincerely look forward to the potential of working together.
