I am both a Parnell Institute and EMDRIA Approved EMDR Consultant, with over 20 years of experience using this powerful tool. My psychotherapy clients report profound transformation using EMDR to heal present blockages from past trauma. Having been fortunate to have spent years in training with Dr. Laurel Parnell, the creator of the Parnell Institute, I also appreciate passing this knowledge, via group and individual consultation to clinicians wanting to expand their comfort, knowledge, and skillset using this powerful therapy.
Over thirty years of experience has provided me the confidence to work with diverse psychological issues including relationship conflicts, attachment, emotional, sexual, and physical abuse, shame, traumatic medical experiences, spiritual malaise, early familial and societal conditioning, and traumatic accidents. I have cultural expertise and extensive experience working with law enforcement officers and medical professionals.
Psychotherapy is a team approach, dependent on both client and therapist working together to facilitate change. I encourage honest feedback from clients to fit individual and changing needs throughout the therapeutic process. When the client/therapist relationship is respectful and emotionally safe, people are able to move into their own potential.
