In additional to being trained and certified in EMDR, I am trained in psychodrama, Emotional focused therapy and addictions. I am culturally-sensitive therapist and use a client-centered approach.

Education & Experience

I graduated with honors in 2014 from Long Island University and subsequently received training and certification in EMDR.

I also trained in other models and presented workshops in outpatient clinics, colleges and at a national conference. I currently supervise therapists in trauma-informed practice.
