How long will I have to come to therapy?
It really depends on what you want to work on. If we are using EMDR to process trauma it can be as few as 8 sessions and as many as 30. This will be something we discuss during the first session in order to plan treatment.
What are your credentials?
I received my Master's in Social Work in 2009 and then my Clinical License in 2012. I also became a certified EMDR therapist in 2021.
What is your experience working with trauma?
I have been working with lots of different types of trauma since 2001. I have worked with folks struggling with childhood trauma and sexual traumas since that time. In the last 4 years I have begun working with Fire and EMS treating PTSD due to on the job exposure.
What if I don't want to work on trauma?
That is completely fine, therapy can be helpful for so many things. It can be a place to vent about work and life, process grief, or strategize upcoming life changes. I believe that therapy is a lot like taking your car in for an oil change. We do it regularly to ensure our car is running properly for as long as possible. Therapy can serve the same purpose for our brains.
I've never done counseling before, what should I expect?
During the first session I'll be asking a lot of questions to get a general idea of your life history. After that, it's really up to you. You are the driver of this bus. Each session we will check in on the week's prior and then dive into something that is important to you to focus on at that time.
