Announcement icon We expanded our online TeleMental Health Therapy Program by adding additional counselors who will be available online 7:00AM to 10:00PM CST
I'm a counselor/psychotherapist and I specialize in three things: #1, Depth Psychology with a strong Jungian focus #2, Post Traumatic Stress Disorders and the Traumatic Recovery Process #3, Psychotherapy for Physicians, Executives and Senior leaders working through crisis. I'm certified in (EMDR) Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. My passion for working with people experiencing post traumatic stress came as a result of my own experiences as an EMT and Paramedic during my career in emergency medicine serving as a first responder in Arizona, California and Texas currently nearing thirty years of service.
I’m a complex trauma specialist who uses an eclectic approach to problem solving and psychotherapy. I’m influenced by depth psychology with a strong Jungian analytical focus. I believe in a collaborative approach & I consider myself a partner in your health and wellness. I provide counseling services for individuals, couples, families, and children.
At my core I believe in using a psycho-educational approach in all of our programs, meaning we take the mystery out of the illness or issue you're facing clearing up common misconceptions and misunderstandings better enabling you to bring meaningful solutions and closure to the issues. I offer counseling that promotes healing and unlocks potential.
