I have been in private practice and a licensed Marriage Family Therapist since 1991. I received both my Bachelor's of Science in Child Development and my Master's of Science in Counseling from San Diego State University.
My primary training is in Bowen Family Systems Theory. This experience allowed me to work well with families, couples and individuals who are struggling with relationship issues. This includes problems with anxiety, depression, OCD, ADHD, codependency, grief, addiction and launching/separation issues.
My main focus in my practice, since 2008, has been in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing). EMDR allows me to help clients work through traumatic memories (big or small) so they can manage triggers more effectively in the present.
I am Certified in EMDR since 2014.
I have been an EMDRIA Approved Consultant since 2017.
I am currently in training to become a Humanitarian Assistance Program (HAP) facilitator in EMDR.
