My ideal client is often described as mature for their age, gifted, and insightful. They feel like they’re drowning but don’t even know where to start. They want or try to open up but aren’t taken seriously, and they’re tired of feeling like this. They need a therapist who can handle the details that others have told them are too painful or uncomfortable to hear about, who isn’t afraid to challenge or be real with them, but who can lighten the mood with a sense of humor and a sprinkle of sarcasm. They want to make sense of their world, finally feel truly heard and understood, take back control of their emotions, and feel safe again.
EMDR and MATCH are Evidence-Based Treatments, which studies show are more effective faster (an average of 3-12 sessions for EMDR and 22 for MATCH). This equals lower/finite costs (unlike other therapies, which can last years) and a reduction in the need for/costs associated with psychiatrist visits, meds, health issues, hospitalizations, missing school/work.
I founded Healing at Water’s Edge because I’m passionate about helping young people and their families. I have 10+ years of experience working with and advocating for them in their homes, schools, communities, office-based settings, and residential settings. I also have experience collaborating with schools, CPS, foster care, and the courts.
