About Me

Accepting Referrals- I have over 25 years of experience in the counseling field with a concentration in Substance Abuse and Mental Health. I continue to work in an inpatient setting conducting groups (Co-occurring, Anger Management, Recovery from Trauma, DBT, Reiki) and individual services. I incorporate EMDR, DBT, CBT, MET in my practice while using a Mind, Body, Spirit approach to healing. I look forward to the opportunity to provide EMDR in an outpatient setting. This therapeutic intervention has been amazing in helping people heal from past traumas. I am in the process of being paneled by insurance companies and hopefully will be set up with this system in July. In the interim, I can see people for self-pay services. Sliding scale available for those who qualify. Inquire for eligibility. I look forward to partnering with you on your healing journey and providing a safe space for you to leave your burdens at Riverside Counseling and Wellness.
