About Me

I've recently becaome one of the on-line Therapists for Better Help. I am new to Telehealth and I am still learning the ins and outs of their platform, but, it seems to be a good fit for me at this time. I'm in the middle of some coursework on Complex Trauma and EMDR in Telehealth. It has re-ignited a passion for doing EMDR that was started in 2015 when I completed the Basic EMDR program. I am learning some tips on using EMDR via Telehealth and it seems to me that it would be an efficient modality for Telehealth clients who want rapid results.

Education & Experience

I graduated from Wayne State University with my MSW in 1980. I've had numerous post degree trainings throughout the years. I am a Lifelong Learner as you've probably guessed by now. I have also achieved my National Certification in Bodywork Therapy. I've been practicing Massage & Bodywork professionally since 2000.
