About Me

The trials of trauma often overwhelm, exhaust, and lead us astray from our authentic selves. EMDR therapy serves as a compass through these emotions, providing acceptance, support, and empowerment. The late Dr. E. C. Hurley, DMin, Ph.D., was an eminent figure in trauma therapy and an esteemed expert in EMDR. His groundbreaking contributions transformed the treatment of combat-related trauma in military personnel and Veterans. In 2016, I had the honor of receiving EMDR training under his expert guidance. His invaluable mentorship profoundly shaped my career and approach to EMDR treatment. In 2020, I continued my training through courses he led, including The Dissociative Spectrum from Acute Stress to Complex PTSD; Treating Shame, Guilt, and Moral Injury; Addressing Dissociative Exhibitions and Suicidality; and Telehealth and EMDR. His enduring influence continues to inspire me through my work in EMDR. Expanding on my expertise in trauma treatment, I offer integrative therapy methods tailored to address concerns related to sex, sleep, depression, anxiety, and substance use.

Education & Experience

I completed my Masters in Social Work at Western Michigan University in 2009, achieving LMSW-C status by 2012. Expanding my qualifications, I obtained the Board Certified Diplomate (BCD) in Social Work and the Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor (CAADC) credentials in 2015. Additionally, I earned certification as a Certified Sex Therapy Informed Professional in 2023. My professional journey spans from serving as a Mental Health Clinician in the civilian community between 2012 and 2015 to an enriching tenure as an active duty service member until 2023. As a veteran, my current practice extends support to diverse communities, encompassing civilians, veterans, and military personnel. My commitment to comprehensive care led me to complete various specialized trainings, including Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE).

Professional & Volunteer Affiliations

I'm an active member of professional associations including EMDRIA (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing International Association), NASW(National Association of Social Workers) and MOAA (Military Officers Association of America). Additionally, I engage in a consultative group of esteemed colleagues, fostering collaboration and expertise in our shared field.
