Treatment is client-specific, where methods used are based
on each client’s goals and strengths.


Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) helps people resolve disturbing life events by getting them “unstuck” through the use of bilateral stimulation.  I am an EMDRIA Certified Therapist in EMDR, with level I, level II, and advanced training. These advanced trainings include: "Attachment-Focused EMDR: Healing Developmental Deficits and Adults Abused as Children," "Treatment of Problematic Anger, Hostility and Violent Behavior," "Integration of DBT and EMDR For Complex Trauma," "The EMDR Treatment of Health-Related Problems," and "EMDR for Recent Critical Incidents & Ongoing Traumatic Stress." For more information, please visit the What Is EMDR? page or the Parnell Institute website.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) refers to the idea that thoughts influence feelings and behaviors, so by changing one’s thoughts a bothersome situation may be improved.  I recently completed the "CATIE Master Clinician CBT Training" through CPACK Colorado Springs.  
Colorado Psychiatric Access and Consultation for Kids (CPACK) is an innovative, grant-funded program integrating behavioral healthcare with physical healthcare.  This advanced training focused on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for post-traumatic stress, depressive symptoms, disruptive behaviors and anxiety. 

Post Induction Therapy (The Meadows Developmental Model) treats co-dependence and trauma, by healing five core symptoms: self-esteem, meeting one’s needs, healthy boundaries, moderation, and being responsible for one’s thoughts, feelings and behaviors. This training was taught by Pia Mellody, a leader in the field of developmental trauma. 

I also offer therapeutic art interventions with individuals who like using their creativity as part of the healing process. Drumming can be used with individuals who enjoy rhythm, physical release and sound. With children I offer play interventions for working through their unique issues.
