Ms. Mercea Strecker

About Me

I specialize in complex trauma for Active Duty Military and Combat Veterans. For the last 8 years I was the sole Practitioner of EMDR at the VA location in Tacoma. I have also worked in the UK with children and adults with disability to include autistic spectrum. I have recently created an EMDR protocol for OCD that is having excellent results.
