About Me

I have been working in the field of trauma for over 30 years. Many of my professional years were spent working for the Department of Defense for both the Veteran's Administration and the Military where I treated people from all branches of the military. I have worked with people experiencing many mental health symptoms and diagnoses. My specialty is PTSD stemming from traumatic events in childhood and adulthood from many different forms of traumatic experiences. I began studying EMDR in the late 1990's and became Certified in 2015. I have found EMDR to be the best therapy when working with most people with trauma(s). I am trained in other therapies as well.

Education & Experience

I hold a Master's degree in Social Work and have been working as a Clinical Social Worker since 1998. I have done individual therapy, group therapy, have been in a management position and have supervised MSW Interns and those pursuing their licensure. I also completed requirements to become certified in General Biofeedback which includes Heart rate variability (HRV); electromyography (EMG) and vasodilation (Thermal/temperature) biofeedback which are therapies that help people manage their physiology/autonomic nervous system.
