Caron Leader, LCSW, ACSW,


EMDR Certified Therapist

About Me

I have been practicing since 1996 mainly in outpatient settings and have been a private practice owner for the last 17 years. I have done extensive training in Sand-Tray World-Play, EMDR and am a Somatic Experiencing Pratitioner. I have been a certified EMDR therapist since 2017. I blend EMDR, sand tray therapy and Somatic Experiencing and love how these three modalities work in harmony.
