Welcome,
Come look around.

 

Advance your skills.

Consultant

Are you seeking case consultation in EMDR? Perhaps to complete your basic training?

Or

Toward becoming EMDRIA certified?

Or

 Are you looking for another perspective on a challenging case?

Perhaps 

You are seeking consultation in applying hypnosis beyond your basic training?

Trainer

Now that you know the basics, are you looking to advance your skills working with individuals or groups?

Or

Would knowing how to handle a recent traumatic episode expand your skills working with individuals or groups?

Or

Did you know that hypnosis training can augment interventions regardless of therapeutic orientation?

I am a broadly trained, licensed psychologist

I share cutting edge information with professionals, and train psychotherapists in the treatment of trauma and building resilience.
 
I am an Approved Consultant with EMDRIA and an Approved Trainer for the recent trauma protocols: R-TEP/G-TEP/RISC.
 
I am also an Approved Consultant certified by the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis. Hypnosis teaches clinicians how to use language most effectively in their clinical work.

As a speaker, I present up to date information on a variety of topics to community groups and professional organizations.

As a supervisor, consultant and trainer, I work with other therapists and graduate students to develop their skills.

As a psychotherapist, I provide psychotherapy to adults, adolescents and couples, building resilience in the face of trauma.

R-TEP/G-TEP

The Recent Traumatic Episode Protocol & The Group Traumatic Episode Protocol

R-TEP is designed for in depth 1:1 work. The client chooses the targets as they emerge, and the therapist ensures added attention to containment and safety.
 
G-TEP uses a worksheet and is designed for group administration.
 It may be used with individuals experiencing the same or different trauma as well as with small family groups of different ages.

G-TEP RISC

The Group Traumatic Episode Protocol for Remote Individual and Self Care

For any EMDR trained therapist and those who took R-TEP in the past but not GTEP.
 
This training prepares you for virtual 1:1 work, or in person G-TEP.
 
It introduces you to the use of RISC for therapist self care.

Stepping Up to RISC

For therapists who were previously trained in R-TEP and G-TEP

This training prepares you for virtual 1:1 work, and presents important considerations for virtual group administration.
Whether you are looking for consultation, training or other services, if your questions are not answered by the information on this site, please feel free to contact me with your questions.

“…the psychological treatment of individuals demands a composite of knowledge from various approaches. I align myself fully with those who believe that we strengthen clinical repertoires through integration, not through displacement or exclusion.”
