EMDRIA Approved Consultant, Owner of Creekside Counseling & Wellness and Evolved EMDR
I earned both my undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of Tennessee and have worked in the mental health field for 28 years. I am passionate about helping clinicians feel confident in providing EMDR Therapy due to the transformative impact this modality offers to clients.
My clinical interests and expertise include anxiety and panic disorders, phobias and fears, stress management, grief, PTSD, recent/single incident trauma, medical and birth related trauma, as well as developmental and relationship trauma. In my private practice I offer both traditional therapy and EMDR Intensives.
I co-coordinate the East TN chapter of the Trauma Recovery Network through the EMDR Humanitarian Assistance Programs (HAP). The East TN TRN maintains a network of EMDR clinicians trained in the EMDR Early Intervention protocols who are available to respond to local events involving gun and interpersonal violence. We also provide opportunities to educate local communities and their leaders on the efficacy of EMDR therapy employed as part of an early intervention response to trauma.
