In order to achieve clinical excellence for clients, a therapist must be educated and trained in the most effective treatment modalities. In addition to two Masters Degrees in Psychology and Education, I have extensively trained in advanced methods for both relational and attachment EMDR. After teaching and leading research at Vanderbilt University and Stanford University School of Medicine for 20 years, the evidence-based approach and standard of excellence that I’ve always practiced is paramount in supporting you.
