I no longer see clients but, as an EMDRIA Approved Consultant, I continue to offer EMDR case consultation to clinicians using EMDR with adults and children. I provide individual and group case consultation to professionals by phone or virtually. Consultation is done in a supportive environment and can be used for case consultation for Basic Training, for EMDRIA Certification or to become an EMDRIA Approved Consultant.

Requirements to become EMDRIA Certified or an EMDRIA Approved Consultant may be found at emdria.org.

I have worked with children, adolescents, and adults for over 35 years in community behavioral health agencies, school settings, child welfare settings, private counseling agencies, chemical dependency inpatient facilities and private practice.
