About Me

Originally from the east coast, Bonnie moved to Los Angeles 30 years ago. Bonnie holds a BA in Mathematics from American University and MA in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University. For the past 20 years, Bonnie has worked with many individuals, couples and families who have experienced anxiety, panic attacks, depression, eating disorders, addictions, loss, and other debilitating, traumatic experiences. During her early career as a psychotherapist, she recognized that while her clients were able to reduce their emotional reactions, they were not able to completely overcome their anxiety, panic attacks or strong emotional response. After reading about the success of EMDR, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, Bonnie knew that this was the theoretical approach she wanted to pursue. In 2012 she received her training and decided to solely practice EMDR at that time and was EMDRIA certified..
