It’s nice to meet you! I’m a Licensed Associate Counselor and Certified Clinical Trauma Professional with training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
I earned my MA in Counseling from Ottawa University, with a concentration in the treatment of trauma, abuse and deprivation, and my BA from Colgate University in New York.
I’m also the ghostwriter of a book on trauma by J. Eric Gentry, founder of the International Association of Trauma Professionals and vice president of the Arizona Trauma Institute.
My therapy career began at Psychological Counseling Services, a nationally recognized provider of intensive outpatient therapy programs. I’ve also had the privilege of counseling adults and couples at Catholic Charities in Phoenix. Currently, I work under the direct supervision of Roxanne R. Domek, PLLC.
I place great importance on establishing a trusting, supporting relationship with clients that allows us to work in close collaboration to pursue meaningful therapeutic goals. I feel strongly that every individual, couple and family is unique, so I draw from a variety of therapeutic traditions and modalities, including EMDR, cognitive behavioral strategies, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, mind-body approaches, mindfulness techniques and expressive art therapy.
If there's one thing I’ve learned, it's that none of us can do it alone. This is my commitment to you: I will serve as your trusted partner who will hold your hope for you when you feel hopeless. I will be the guide you can rely on when the way ahead is unclear and you fear you might be losing your way. And I will stand by you every step of the way until your journey to a new and better life is complete.
