I have completed EMDR training, and I also utilize cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and parts work.
I work primarily with adults who have experienced early life trauma and/or adverse experiences. Maybe you are having difficulty expressing needs and setting boundaries within relationships, are experiencing panic attacks, feel anxious in social situations, or are having difficulty living in the present. Your feelings are valid regardless of what you’ve been told or what your experiences have led you to believe. You deserve to see yourself differently and be present in your life.

I specialize in trauma recovery & utilize EMDR and Brainspotting techniques.
Many of us are private people, who could use a little extra support and direction to overcome life's challenges. Acceptance and Confidentiality are two important aspects of Fairhaven Counseling & Consulting. Throughout my career I have learned that clients progress most effectively with an honest, non-judgmental, compassionate, but direct approach. I love watching clients rediscover their inner strength and begin to experience the joys life has to offer. I offer both personal & professional perspectives to overcoming trauma and rebuilding a life worth living.

I use EMDR , Expressive Arts, movement, and other techniques.
I serve individuals who have encountered trauma in their lives. They typically struggle with getting easily triggered and being in fight, flight or freeze mode a lot of the time. It often feels like anxiety so many of my clients come in saying they suffer with anxiety. Many of my clients also struggle with making decisions.

Life is now. We all experience inner and outer obstacles that interfere with living life to its fullest. Growth / progress usually stems from understanding who we are, what needs to change within ourselves and our relationships, learning new ways to heal, forgive, and communicate, and letting go of patterns that interfere. Therapy is unique for each of us. I integrate and tailor various approaches to address the mind, body, and spirit. We will partner together to address your goals. I will bring compassion, creativity, sensitivity, warmth, accountability, and insight to our work together.

I have been in professional psychological practice since 1979, been married many years, raised 2 children and shared in raising 3 step-children, so I have many years of clinical and personal experience on which to draw.

I have extensive training in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TFCBT), CBT, & certified in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing ( EMDR ).
Clients who have wounds, especially interpersonal ones, find that they feel heard without judgement when working with me. I don't get embarrassed or surprised and I think clients find I am warm, genuine, open-minded and respectful. My experience is heavily focused on trauma, especially interpersonal; anxiety; and parenting challenges. Talking with people in counseling is a gift people share with me and I am honored when I can be a part of someone's "story." With 20 years of clinical experience, I have had many opportunities to help people navigate changes in their lives. I believe in the importance of connectedness.

The methods I use to help trauma survivors include EMDR and ego state/internal family systems therapies.
I help Christian women who feel like life just isn't working out. Maybe you give constantly to others, but your relationships are still not satisfying. You work really hard to make things ok, but hard things keep happening, you aren't sure who you are, and you can't shake a sense of general disappointment with God, other people, and life in general. I'll work with you to overcome those hard things and disappointments in a way that lets you move toward healthy and connected relationships with God and other people.

I also often incorporate EMDR as well as a wealth of training and knowledge surrounding attachment, trauma, and relational dynamics.
Finding a space to feel safe, heard, and valued can be extremely difficult. It's even harder to find this space, when we're feeling overwhelmed by life. Over the past 11 years, I have learned that this essential piece- developing trust and safety with my clients- is the basis for healing and wholeness. I truly strive to put my clients and their needs first. If you're struggling with mental health challenges as a result of trauma or significant life stress, I would love to talk more with you about how we might work together to begin finding the peace or healing that you're seeking.

The decision to enter into therapy can be a difficult one. When you have tried everything you can think of to feel better but nothing seems works, it can be disheartening. I will work with you collaboratively so you can become more proactive and can start living your life on purpose. I often work with clients that feel stuck or just tried of walking through the day to day routine of their life without experiencing joy. Therapy is a confidential place to explore and process what is emotionally affecting you, to understand your roadblocks, and ultimately to discover a better path forward.

EMDR Therapists
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation 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.
