EMDR Certified Therapist

Consultant-in-Training

About Me

I am an EMDR Certified Therapist and EMDR Consultant-in-Training. Alongside EMDR, I take a Whole Person approach involving inner child work, ACT, Buddhist psychology, and restorative trauma sensitive meditation and yoga. In addition to training in Attachment-Focused EMDR (AF-EMDR), I have received advanced training the Flash Technique, IFS-informed EMDR, and Ego States with EMDR. I am an OEF military veteran and have worked with uniformed service professionals since 2008. As a therapist, I will help you to tap into your internal resources and connect to your body’s natural healing ability. We’ll work together to shift the impact of stress to help you create pathways allowing a stronger connection to yourself, and to the people and things which matter to you. Doing so with more energy, creativity, and with a sense of freedom. As a fellow human being, I know what it means to fight just to stay afloat. By coming together we will move your ship toward shore. As an EMDRIA Consultant in Training with the Parnell Institute, my focus is on supporting therapists to grow in EMDR. If you want to improve proficiency in the Standard EMDR Protocol, the modified protocol for Attachment-Focused EMDR, Connecting the Consequences, the Flash Technique, and others, we can work together. Consultants in Training can provide up to 15 of the 20 consultation hours required for EMDRIA certification in EMDR, and can provide the 10 consultation hours for EMDR Basic Training if approved by your training provider. Thank you for finding me here. I sincerely look forward to the potential of working together.
