I have an MA in marital and famiy therapy and have been a Licensed Professional Counselor for 14 years. I've specialized in truama and anxiety disorders since the beginning. I was trained by the pioneers of EMDR, was certified, and continued my training until there was little else for me to learn. I have assisted over 1000 people to move through their trauma, have meaningful healthy relationships, and more fulfilling lives. EMDR can be used for a multitude of issues as they are all caused by a trauma of some sort, whether large or small. I also use Cognitive and Cognitive Behavior Therapy. I have an easy going way about me. Probably in part because I was raised in California during the 70's. Judgement is not part of my make-up because one never knows what has happened to a person to bring them to where they are.
I enjoy seeing the expressions on the faces of my clients as they realize the pain and self-doubt they've experienced for years is gone. I know that I'm the facilitator, but the client is the one healing themselves. I have so much respect for people that are willing, and brave enough to go where the pain began, process through it, and move beyond it. To be present while a person overcomes their self-defeating beliefs is an honor I never take lightly, nor do I take the credit. One thing that I can honestly tell my clients is, "I am worthy of your trust and I will not let you fall."
