I am an Independent clinical social worker. That means I am a counselor. Some call it psychotherapy. I have 17 years of experience in mental health counseling. I am an EMDR therapist. I also use CBT and  other theories based in the personal needs of each client. EMDR works best with trauma and has the science to back up that statement. It also is helpful with depression, anxiety, pain management. EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing.

EMDR moves material quickly and efficiently. It clears up a trauma and allows the individual more privacy . A lot of clients seek it as a last resort because nothing else worked for them.

We start with an indepth history and evaluation for whether or not EMDR will help a client. Of course, it's always a client's choice to pick how they want their treatment to go and some choose CBT instead. 

Our work is a collaboration between the client and therapist. You know yourself better than anyone else. I respect that. I apply my clinical skills to your issues and we decide what your goals are and how you want to achieve them. There are many paths to a specific destination. 

We talk. I listen to you. I want to know you , your concerns and create a genuine, caring working relationship. We work on the best method for you to meet your goals. I am not a therapist who just listens. I'm the coach and am there when you are running the plays. Then we talk some more, evaluate and plan the next step.

I have 17 years experience using EMDR, more than many EMDR clinicians. I am an approved facilitator for the EMDR Institute. I am also a consultant for EMDR International Assoc. In addition I am the EMDRIA Co-ordinator for N.E. Ohio. I am well & highly credentialled, one of the 3 highest in N.E. Ohio.

I also prefer working on a cash basis so you keep your anonimity with insurance companies. However, I do take a few insurances.

If life stressors are just too much, call me or email me. I'll get back to you as quickly as possible. Of course, all crisis situations are best handled by your local ER not clinicians in private practice.

Be well. Be good to yourself.  Your new life is just around the corner. The hard part is making the first call. Go for it!
