Kristen Irene Garubba, EdD, MACL

EMDR Certified Therapist

EMDR Consultant-in-Training

About Me

I am a licensed therapist with over 10 years experience working with many diverse populations. My approach is focused on healing, wellness, and finding the intervention that best fits the individual need. I offer a warm and safe space for reflection, self exploration, and movement through what might be difficult material

Education & Experience

I am a Doctorate and Masters holder with focus on Clinical psychology. I have worked with several populations throughout my training which have included: children, teens, families, couples, and adults who have participated in both the private and non-profit sectors. When I began full time in addiction treatment, my interest peaked and was only furthered by its intricate tie to trauma.
