To ensure every patient gets the treatment he or she needs, I often incorporate specialized techniques such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and EMDR , a powerful technique for patients that have suffered a traumatic event.
For people who have faced extraordinary difficulties, navigating the ups and and downs of everyday life can be a challenge. As a therapist who specializes in working with people dealing with addiction or anxiety or those who suffered a personal trauma, my goal is to help men, women, and teens who struggle with those issues learn the skills to not just get by, but to grow and thrive.

I am a feminist, EMDR -trained therapist who is validating, affirming, and here for the challenging conversations.
There are many reasons why you might be seeking therapy at this very moment. It could be because of a major life event- a death, the end of a relationship, or a trauma. It could be because of a lot of small things that have accumulated over time. It could be preventative or restorative. Or it could be just because. You might be therapy-curious, or wonder if you even need therapy. Whatever has brought you to this point, I believe that the most important part of a therapeutic relationship is connection; and that therapy is for everybody.

I have specialized training in trauma, EMDR , life transitions, grief and loss, and anxiety work.
Life can be hard! Sometimes life deals us a set of circumstances that we aren’t sure how to navigate. Sometimes life is just confusing, and it can be hard to make sense of it all. You may find yourself asking questions like “how did I get here” and “how do I move forward”. There is where counseling could come in as a tool-- one of the biggest benefits of therapy is having a safe place to share how you are really doing and feeling.

The primary modalities I use with clients are EMDR , Internal Family Systems and Somatic Experiencing.
I wholeheartedly believe that because the majority of our wounds occur inside relationship, healing will come through relationship as well. In our work, I can offer you warmth and empathy as we gently explore the ‘why’ behind what you do while uncovering your strength and resilience. My work with clients focuses on grief and loss, trauma, relational discord, anxiety, depression, body image, life-transitions, adoption-related issues, parenthood and the intersection of faith and spirituality with day to day living.

I use EMDR , Brain-spotting, DBT, Mindfulness, Internal Family Systems, Mindful Self-Compassion, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction skills and Compassionate Communication (NVC) to help you be happy and well.
I AM NOT CURRENTLY ABLE TO ACCEPT NEW CLIENTS. When you need support, guidance, and a safe place in which to heal, it is important that you find a loving, insightful and highly trained therapist that feels right for you. Clients tell me that I put them at ease with my accepting and non-judgmental attitude. At the same time, I point out options you may not have considered and teach you new ways of dealing with your problems. I have over 20 years experience guiding clients into health and happiness.

I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional and use EMDR , mindfulness, Jungian therapy, and psycho-education to help people process trauma and manage anxiety and depression.
Do you sometimes find yourself operating from outdated beliefs and patterns that no longer serve you? Such patterns can hold us back and make life seem futile and meaningless, leaving us feeling drained and defeated. They may stem from traumatic experiences, life transitions, unexpected events, and setbacks. However, we can find new meaning and inspiration in life even after major setbacks or traumas. We can rekindle creativity and purpose through therapy. I bear witness to people's lived experiences while helping them update their belief systems and functioning so as to experience more adaptive and fuller versions of themselves.

When appropriate I will use techniques such as Gestalt therapy, psychomotor, DBT, meditation practice, EMDR , and energy work.
With more than 40 years of experience, I believe that psychotherapy can provide a "safe container," a non-judgmental place, in which clients can confront their issues in complete confidentiality without fear of rejection. There is no blueprint for this process; together we create the path leading to each client's inner wisdom and healing.

I am trained in two evidence-based treatment modalities: DBT and EMDR .
Do you work so hard, yet still struggle with feeling “not enough”? Are you looking to explore who you are -- flaws and strengths -- and be met with compassion? I'm drawn to working with people who want to overcome anxiety, perfectionism, and people-pleasing. My clients love so well and are so thoughtful of others that often they forget to take care of themselves. They want more peace, more confidence, and better boundaries. Their work is to better understand how their past affects how they act now, and how they can more fully embody who they truly are.

Our real journey in this life is interior; it is a matter of growth, deepening, and of an ever greater surrender to the creative action of love and grace in our hearts. Thomas Merton wrote this a half-century ago, but it is still appropriate today. In our practice, we provide a safe, professional and holistic atmosphere, where people are supported in making profound changes and choices in their lives. I work collaboratively with both individuals and couples, using a plethora of techniques, including the Enneagram, dreams, myth, gestalt and EMDR .

With the help of EMDR , we can reduce the overwhelm & emptiness you feel by actually letting your brain and body heal themselves.
To all the perfectionists & people pleasers out there: No, life does not have to be this hard. Let me paint you a picture: You are overwhelmed by stress and anxiety, but you do everything you can to appear perfectly fine in front of other people. You feel really alone, but you’re afraid to burden others with your pain. You feel like you’re constantly running on empty, but you don’t know how to get back to feeling like yourself again. To make matters worse, that voice in your head won’t shut up about how you can't trust yourself and there must be something wrong with you. Does this sound like you?

My goal is to provide you with a safe space to practice proven therapeutic techniques such as: mindfulness, mind-body work, EMDR , and CBT to help you feel in alignment with the life you live.
Your life seems to be going well, but deep inside you feel like you're just a great pretender. You’re doing your best to be a good parent, partner, daughter, co-worker, but no matter how hard you try, you end up feeling like you could be better. You’re struggling with feelings of doubt, grief, shame and irritability. When the day is over you deal with restless thoughts traveling a mile a minute, all to remind you of the things you have yet to get done. You can’t sleep and no matter how many times you try to organize your life, it just seems to always feel messy. One day you're a “go getter”, next day you struggle to get out of bed.

I help individuals heal from painful experiences using brain-based therapies, EMDR and Brainspotting, to recover and engage more positively with life.
Does the shadow of the past still influence how you show up in the world? Maybe you feel weak or crazy because you “can’t get over it”. Your friends and family don’t get it. There are times when things feel okay and life is pretty good but, then not so much. Maybe you find yourself feeling more on edge, are more reactive and emotional, or maybe you just feel not yourself? Your relationships are suffering. You know you are capable of more; personally, professionally, creatively, spiritually. Perhaps you have done therapy before and have some insight but your patterns haven't changed. You don't FEEL different but you'd like to.

I am also trained in EMDR , a powerful treatment that helps individuals reprocess past distressful experiences.
There are many things that may impact a person's ability to lead a full life, including challenges at work or school, relationship issues, depression and anxiety, and past traumas or losses. My goal as a therapist is to help clients move through their challenges and develop a deeper understanding of their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors so they are able to live more satisfying and present lives. I do this by assisting clients in processing their feelings and identifying and connecting the things that have shaped them - including their relationships, thoughts, and attachment/trauma experiences - to their current issues.

EMDR Therapists
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is an information processing therapy that helps clients cope with trauma, addictions, and phobias. During this treatment, the patient focuses on a specific thought, image, emotion, or sensation while simultaneously watching the therapist's finger or baton move in front of his or her eyes. The client is told to recognize what comes up for him/her when thinking of an image; then the client is told to let it go while doing bilateral stimulation.

If you're looking for EMDR therapy in Decatur or for a Decatur EMDR therapist these professionals provide EMDR therapy, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing and EMDR treatment. They include EMDR therapists, EMDR psychologists, EMDR psychotherapists, and EMDR counselors.
