I am a licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Florida. I have over 20 years' experience as a mental health professional and certified in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy, a trauma focused approach. As an EMDR therapist I assume that unhealed trauma is playing a major role in presenting issues, and I work with my clients to heal unresolved trauma.
