About Me

I am not currently accepting new clients.

Education & Experience

I am a board-certified licensed counselor in Northern New York. I completed my master's in clinical mental health counseling through Regent University in 2015, as well as post graduate certification in Trauma and Dissociation. I completed a BA in English with a psychology focus at Guelph University in 1994, and a BA in Theology and Counseling at Nazarene Bible College in 2011. My areas of specialization include military trauma, trauma, dissociation, and domestic violence. In addition to my EMDR certification, to better serve my clients I have completed certification in the Domestic Violence/Rape Crisis Sexual Assault Advocacy Training through the DoH, TF-CBT, level 2 training in clinical hypnosis through ASCH (2018). I have been been certified in Disaster Mental Health through Green Cross (2012) and both individual and group clinical incident stress management (CISM) (2012). I have presented internationally on domestic violence, PTSD and disaster mental health counseling. I have taught and supervised BA and PhD level psychology students in the Ukraine and presented a workshop on domestic violence at Shevchenko University (2015).
