EMDR Trainer

About Me

I believe in the evidence-based approach that trust and safety established in the therapeutic relationship is the foundation to healing. I utilize the theoretical foundations of client-centered humanism, existentialism, and attachment-based family systems. Using these foundations, I adapt specific intervention tools to the individual needs of each client, couple, or family. I do this by working on a collaborative path with clients to develop a stronger and healthier sense of self, create healthy boundaries and assertiveness skills, realize a deeper meaning of existence in this world, strengthen relationships, and solicit appropriate change in a healthy adaptive way.

Education & Experience

I hold two master’s degrees, an M.A. in Educational Psychology with emphases in both School Counseling and Marriage and Family Therapy and an M.B.A. in Strategic Management. I earned an Advanced Certificate in Addiction Treatment and Services in 2015 and became both a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional and an NBCC International Mental Health Facilitator Trainer in Kigali, Rwanda in 2017. I began working in a therapeutic capacity in 2012 and incorporated EMDR into my practice in 2017. I am a licensed to provide therapy to Tennessee, California, & Nevada residents.

Professional & Volunteer Affiliations

Service to the community is a central part of my life. I have volunteered at Ground Zero after September 11th, traveled with a maternal health nonprofit in the rural Himalayas of northern Nepal, and led a mental health education course with survivors of the genocide in Kigali, Rwanda in collaboration with local mental health colleagues.
