Often, people have not understood the impact significant events--for instance,
abuse, domestic violence, sexual assault, wartime deployments, domestic/international terrorism, working high risk fields (military, first responders)-- have had on them emotionally and psychologically.
I have been a licensed clinician since 1988. I started working with families in 1984. I have worked with clients as young as two years old up to seniors eighty years young. I love working with couples, families,
, and teens; helping families with the challenges of adolescence and parenting. I work with couples recovering from infidelity and those desiring to strenthen their relationships. I work with PTSD, and Dissociative Disorders. I am trained in hypnotherapy, and EMDR. I was fortunate to complete my EMDR training (Levels I and II) with Francine Shapiro, PhD, EMDR's originator, in 1994.
