What do you specialize in or focus on in mental health treatment?:
I have specialized training and certification in EMDR. EMDR is a treatment modality that can be very helpful in treatment any type of trauma, grieve and loss, depression, and anxiety. I have been EMDR certified for 25 years and have found it helpful in assisting clients to work through both short term and long term issues. In my experience EMDR is generally more effective in resolving trauma and other issues versus tradition talk therapy and with less number of sessions. EMDR is not for everyone and all issues, your therapist will determine it is it appropriate for you and your issues. For more information on EMDR go to the website EMDR.com
What do you do in your free time?
I enjoy reading, exercising, and spending time with family.
