About My Clients

Trauma does NOT have to own you! I help people suffering from the debilitating effects of real-time or developmental trauma, including: anxiety, depression, hyper-vigilance, flashbacks, intrusive memories or thoughts, sleep disruption, avoidance, dissociation (numbing out, detachment), irritability, exaggerated startle response, or problems with concentration. We offer cutting-edge, BRAIN-BODY Trauma therapies, such as: Brainspotting, EMDR, Trauma-Sensitive Mindfulness & Somatic-Atttachment.

My Background and Approach

I am the Founder & CEO of Dragonfly Trauma Counseling Center, LLC. I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, a Certified Brain Spotting Trauma Therapist and a Trauma-Sensitive Certified Mindfulness Therapist (MBRP & MBCT). I am intensively trained in EMDR, Grief & Bereavement Recovery, DBT, and Somatic Attachment Therapy. I have extensive training and experience in Spirituality Renewal. And, I am a Trauma Recovery Life Coach. I am dually mastered, holding a Masters in Social Work and a Master of Arts in Theology. In addition, I hold a graduate Certificate from Vanderbilt Divinity School in Religion, Gender, and Sexuality. My clinical expertise as a Trauma Specialist is rooted in my own contemplative, post-traumatic spirituality practice.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that while we did not choose Trauma, we can choose to HEAL from it! I believe that transformation from the inside out is possible! I believe you can be heal with long-lasting results and that you can become the person you are meant to be in truth and grace and love! I believe in collaborative partnership in the therapeutic relationship, empowering clients with the ability to exercise their own self-determination/agency, and to create the life they so deeply desire. I believe in the Trauma therapies that I use, including: Brainspotting, EMDR, Trauma-Sensitive Mindfulness, Somatic-Attachment, and Grief & Bereavement Recovery. I believe in the fundamental inherent worth & dignity of each person, in radical compassion, and holistic healing -- body, mind, spirit & soul!
