I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC), National Certified Counselor and a fully trained Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapist . I received my Master of Arts/Science degree from Roosevelt University. I specialize in Trauma, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD),anxiety, depression, addictions, fears, guilt and a range of life adjustment issues. I work with individuals to help make sense of the past to understand and neutralize the negative influence it has on present functioning and relationships. By clearing up the "debri" from the past, we can fully focus on being our best in the present and future.
Inspired by experiences with trauma, I focus on learning effective interventions for those traumatized by nature or by other people. EMDR is the foundation on which I help victims of child abuse, sexual abuse, guilt, and negative beliefs. I strive to help people fully process and definitively overcome the past.
EMDR provides the foundation on which I help victims of child abuse, sexual abuse, those overcome with guilt or shame witnesses of horrific crimes, and a host of other traumatic experiences. My goal is to help people process and overcome the events of the past in order to move forward.
