I believe that within our minds and bodies we all carry the resources needed to live satisfying lives. My job is to work with my clients to ensure that they get in touch with and use to the fullest these inner resources. Within my 20+ yrs. of working with a diverse population in multiple venues I have studied and use a variety of therapeutic approaches including EMDR and Hypnosis. Therapy is a partnership between a client and therapist.Together we will solve issues which might be keeping you from living your life to its fullest potential

My education for treating families and couples includes a 2yr. certificate from the Family Institute at Northwestern, and studies with Brent Atkinson (Emotional Intelligence in Couples Therapy), and Susan Johnson (Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy). I am ceritfied in EMDR and Hypnotherapy

EMDR treats traumas both large and small. Repair and Reattachment Grief Therapy for those who have not yet moved through the process (rochelle wright.com). I am an artist, wife, mother, grandmother, gardener, chef, and pet owner. I enjoy life and you should as well. Therapy is a collaborative, creative process.
