I am an LCSW offering Telehealth therapy in California, Colorado, Oregon, and Tennessee. I specialize in mindfulness-based therapies.
Clinical Social Worker in Nashville, TN
I have 6 years of experience working in a non-profit mental health facility which served a very high percentage of clients with severe and persistent mental illness, often suicidal, and usually low income, and often in process of getting onto disability. I am trained in EMDR, which has been very effective in reducing depressive symptoms, raising self esteem, and processing past trauma.
I have years of treating anxiety disorders, including Panic Disorder. I use a variety of approaches to help clients improve. I have completed multiple trainings in Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT); I am trained in EMDR and have five years of treating clients using this very effective technique to treat trauma and its resulting anxiety. With my extensive clinical training, along with my 25 years of personal experience examining my own body and mind, I feel very equipped.
I have been using Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) for the past five years. It has been my go-to therapy technique to treat abuse history/trauma and PTSD. I have been working with abuse survivors for my entire time as a therapist and my first job out of college was with children in foster care, and most had abuse history.
I specialize Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (MBCT), with both extensive training as a clinician as well as training over 25 years on intensive mindfulness retreats, in places like Nepal, India, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and in the USA.
I was trained in EMDR five years ago and use it extensively in treating trauma and low self esteem.
