I am a licensed therapist in Central Illinois. I received my Bachelor's degree in Psychology and my Master's degree in Counseling from Oakland University in Auburn Hills, Michigan. i have over 18 years of experience in the mental health field working with children, adolescents, and adults. My clinical expertise is the treatment of cumulative trauma across the lifespan including PTSD, physical, sexual, emotional abuse and sexual assault. I am formally trained in EMDR, Theraplay, and trauma-informed sexual assault. My therapeutic modality of choice is EMDR alongside client-centered talk therapy, CBT, DBT to process and heal the effects of traumatic experiences.
