Wilma S. Bass, MFT

EMDR Certified Therapist

About Me

I am an interactive and engaged therapist with a warm, respectful and practical approach. I am a certified EMDR practitioner and have been consistently integrating EMDR into my psychotherapy practice for 20+ years. EMDR is a powerful and dramatically effective therapeutic approach which can facilitate a decisive recovery from the devastating effects of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). I often work in conjunction with primary therapists when their patients are stuck and cannot proceed effectively. These collaborations are thorough and rewarding in that the patient can reap the benefits of EMDR treatment while integrating the results with their primary therapist.

Education & Experience

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist for 30+ years. I am trained in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and Natural Processing and value the integration of somatic processing into my work. I am also experienced in Disaster Mental Health and workplace trauma critical response.
