I completed my full EMDR training in 2014 and have worked with both military and civilian clients using EMDR/AIP, often with an internal family systems approach. I became a certified-level EMDR therapist in 2020. I am also a certified ACC Lifecoach. I have presented internationally on domestic violence, PTSD, and disaster mental health counseling, and have taught and supervised BA and PhD level psychology students overseas (Ukraine, 2015-16).
