My Approach to Helping

I am a Licensed Psychologist and EMDR Certified Therapist serving Des Moines and central Iowa clients. I have over thirty years of experience working with children, adolescents, and adults in a variety of settings. I take a client-centered approach and believes the relationship with the client is the beginning of the healing process. Therapeutic modalities of CBT, DBT skills, EMDR, art and play therapy techniques are used to facilitate the expression of feelings and begin skill building techniques.
Rhonda has a special interest in treating anxiety, depression, OCD and trauma issues and has had extensive training in attachment trauma as well. She has worked and trained under a trauma-informed philosophy recognizing the unresolved issues and trauma that need to be addressed behind the behavioral symptoms exhibited. She provides individual and family therapy to children, adolescents, and adults.
