Licensed Master Social Worker (PA)
I am passionate about helping others heal from life's traumatic experiences, learn life's lessons from our experiences, and move on to create a better and fulfilled future. I love what I do for work, and feel that it is a sacred privelage to walk this journey with others in need of healing.
I became an RN in 1980 and have had various opportunities to work with survivors of sexual trauma through mental health nursing. In 2001 I became a social worker and began working in mental health counseling at a private counseling agency. I worked for an agency for 8 years, then opened my own private practice in 2009. I have a successful practice treating depression, anxiety, sexual addictions, sexual abuse, traumatic brain injury, ADHD, adoption issues, etc. I use traditional CBT, psychodynamic theory, Emotion-Focused Therapy for Couples, Gottman Marriage Training, and IITAP model for treating addictions. I also use holistic energy psychology and mind-body techniques to augment the counseling process.
I am a registered nurse and a licensed clinical social worker. I am a CSAT (Certified Sex Addiction Therapist) and also trained in the NADA Protocol for addictions. I am trained in EMDR, Craniosacral Therapy, 19 Channel Brain Avatar Neurofeedback, SomatoEmotional Release, Chikkley Brain Method, LifeStar for sex addictions, Reiki, and NeuroEmotional Technique.
