Control of your life is within your reach!

Regaining control of your emotions is vital to your life, career and family. Take it back today.

Helping first responders and medical professionals move from internal turmoil to internal control through online and in person counseling

You are ready to get your life back!

Since you are here, I know you are ready to regain control and live how YOU want; not a life dominated by emotional or behavioral symptoms.
 
I help you attain your goals either in-person or through on-line (sometimes called tele-health) sessions. Research shows that online therapy is just as effective as in-person therapy, and sometimes more effective. Many people regain control faster online than they do in person as they feel more secure participating in therapy from home instead of going to an office. My online (also called tele-health) sessions utilize a 100% HIPAA compliant web platform.
 
I am certified in EMDR, and online I use Thematic Map and Release which is very similar to EMDR, but effective for online sessions. Furthermore, I utilize CPT, Solution-focused, Coaching, and CBT. You can reclaim your life and emotions.

Does this sound like you?

Perhaps you are feeling extremely overwhelmed with your life as a whole – both at home and at work. You don’t feel like you have a place you can go to just unwind and think in order to figure things out. In-person therapy with me would be a great option for you.
 
Or maybe you are more concerned about confidentiality – you don’t want to be seen at at therapist’s office, but you are still feeling extremely overwhelmed with life as a whole. Online therapy sounds like a great option for you.

Why come to me?

First and most important: Because you need to get regain control of yourself, your emotions, and your life quickly and expertly. You can go to any therapist who helps people with symptoms of depression, anxiety, difficulty sleeping, intrusive memories, avoidance, and irritability, or you can go to someone who specializes in your unique needs. Similarly to going to a general surgeon or a hand specialist for hand surgery.
 
One thing I know for sure is there are no quick fixes, but what I provide is a more time-efficient, specialized treatment model which will have you regain control of your life, emotions, and calling in the quickest, most complete way possible.
 
My specialization is with adults, just like you, suffering from the effects of direct or indirect trauma primarily using EMDR and Thematic Map and Release, which is very similar to EMDR.
 
I specialize even deeper with first responders and medical professionals, understanding, but always learning your unique culture and needs when coming to therapy. You will not be told “you’re stressed and need an outlet” when you have no desire or energy or are already using outlets.
 
In fact, you are strong and resilient. I will help you pull on your reserve resiliency to recover control in order to continue to be the leader you are, thus continuing your calling. I will help you reclaim control of your life.
 
A unique feature I offer is tele-counseling utilizing a HIPAA compliant web platform. This allows me to offer 100% confidential sessions throughout the day as well as before and after standard work hours. Not only is this a legal and ethical way to provide mental health counseling, it has many benefits.
 
To ensure compliance and understanding of the risks of using technology, I am credentialed through the Telemental Health Institute and am approved by the Center for Credentialing and Education as a Board Certified Telemental Health Counselor.
 
A BC-TMH has met the nationally established distance counseling criteria and adheres to the National Board for Certified Counselors’ code of ethics and policies regarding the Provision of Distance Professional Services. Click the image below to be redirected to the TMHI website to find me there.
 
To stay up to date in my area of specialization, I am a member of EMDRIA (The EMDR International Association) and am a volunteer for the EMDR Humanitarian Assistance Program. Furthermore, I am trained in several treatment approaches as noted above, am a certified EMDR therapist, and have extensive training and experience in trauma recovery.
