Licensed Professional Counselor | Registered Nurse

Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing Therapist

I am a licensed professional counselor with over 20 years experience working with children, adolescents, and adults in individual as well as group settings. My focus includes depression, anxiety, relationships, ADHD, and mental health issues. I specialize in EMDR, trauma focused CBT, play therapy, sand tray, expressive arts, structured sensory intervention, and the Nurtured Heart approach. I have extensive training and experience working with people of all ages suffering from trauma, grief, and loss. My emphasis is on cognitive reframing; taking the exposed individual from the passive to an active role so they gain greater control over the experience.

Traumatic experiences disrupt the lives of countless children, adolescents and adults. Trauma is not specific to violence but results from experiences such as death of family members/friends; chronic and acute illness; tragic accidents; animal attacks; natural disasters; dealing with suicide or suicide attempts; separation from parents; and divorce.

My treatment plan is designed to diminish the distress that people experience to facilitate the feeling of safety, which is essential for your healing process and personal growth. Together we work to strengthen your mind, body, and spirit so you can continue on your path towards a more fulfilling life.
