All we have to be in the world is kind and brave. Really. And I believe you can do that.
Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Dallas, TX
I was trained in EMDR in 2012 and am currently EMDR Certified, an EMDR Consultant and an EMDR Trainer.
I identify as a feminist and use Feminist Theory as a guiding lens in conceptualizing my work to guide towards an empowerment, strengths-based perspective.
Most of the treatment modalities I have been trained in center around treating trauma. I have an extensive background of treating the impacts of trauma from domestic violence, child abuse, sexual assault, and other forms of abuse.
One of my driving passions as a therapist is to provide safety and support for victims of domestic violence or intimate partner violence. This is the issue I have spent the majority of my career working with and would be honored to assist anyone who is seeking safety from abuse in their relationship.
As a certified EMDR therapist and EMDR trainer, I have had the opportunity to work with hundreds of clients with a PTSD diagnosis and see them experience true relief and freedom as a result of this treatment modality. PTSD does not have to be a lifelong condition!
As the Clinical Director at a local domestic violence agency, I spent 12 years working with women who were experiencing power and control from their partner, helping them to identify their strengths, process their trauma and determining the best path forward for them. This gave me the opportunity to work with women to address a variety of issues that were creating challenges in their lives.
