I have been in practice for over 30 years. For the last 19 years I have been using EMDR as a significant part of my practice. During that time I have been inspired by its power to facilitate the transformation of trauma and distress into resolution and more adaptive coping. I am a certified consultant in EMDR and also work throughout the year as a facilitator at trainings, assisting other clinicians in learning the method. In addition, I work extensively in the treatment of alcoholism and other addictions, often working with family members of the addicted/alcoholic individual. In recent years I have also been involved in the treatment of firefighters, police, and other First Responders.
As a clinician, I have been privileged to work with people as they transform their difficulties from the past into a richer, more functioning fabric of the present.
