I am licensed associate EMDR, trauma counselor under direct supervision in the state of Arizona with Jennifer Cecil, Licensed Professional Counselor, M.Ed, LPC. I am EMDR level 2 trained and specialize in treating trauma related issues. I work specifically with women from the ages of 18 +. My early career began as an interior designer. From there I learned that I was a problem solver, who loved helping people in a relational manner. Growing up I always wanted to be a psychologist or some sort of counselor. So I naturally merged into the helping professions.
Over the last 17 years I have worked in the mental health field to some capacity. My experience includes serving diverse settings, such as, domestic violence, domestic sex trafficking, and community mental health. My experiences have allowed me extensive education and training. I therefore hold several professional certifications from Arizona Trauma Institute and Brain MD. These certifications are necessary for the work that I am doing. They include, certified clinical trauma specialist-Family (CCTS), certified clinical trauma specialist-sex trafficking and exploitation, brain health coach (Dr. Amen Brain MD clinics).
I also have extensive experience working with adults, adolescents and children. Along with being a therapist, I am also a certified brain health coach. I combine a strengths based approach along with a facilitating an environment where clients feel supported while knowing there are solutions on the horizon. I believe people can heal and no circumstance is beyond help. I incorporate a faith-based approach to counseling but you do not have to be a person of faith in order to meet with me. I would love to meet you and discuss what your personal counseling needs are. My personal hobbies are working out, martial arts, and hanging out with my husband, God daughters and dogs.
