I am licensed Clinical Social Work Therapist, MSW, LCSW. I received my degree from Catholic University of America in Washington, DC. I completed my pre-license and initial LICSW license in DC. As of August 2013, I am now a licensed therapist (LCSW) in the state of Nevada. My husband and I have relocated to Henderson, Nevada where 3 of our 7 children reside and 12 of our 26 grandchildren.
I have extensive training in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing-for trauma/PTSD), EFT (Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy), CBT, DBT, & Gottman Couples Therapy. I provide services for children, adolescents, adults, & couples with presenting problems of: depression, anxiety, anger, attachment issues, couple/family conflict & relationship issues, dependency, divorce, grief, loss, low self-esteem, self-harm, phobias, ADD, Bi-Polar, OCD, BPD, PTSD and trama.
Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing is very effective for clients experiencing trauma, loss or PTSD symptoms. Emotional pain decreases, fostering empowerment. EFT & Gottman Therapy help couples understand their negative cycle and how to get out of the cycle. Positive emotional connection is taught, along with ways to foster a healthy relationship.
I am passionate about people. I care about each individual. I want you to feel heard, understood and cared about. We, together, work on your concerns, finding ways to let go of the negative, increase the positive and become empowered. It is an honor and a privilege to work with you.
