Helping others navigate the difficult waters of life, caused by traumatic experiences, and discovering calmer seas!

We provide EMDR therapy both in-person and or virtually to best suit your needs.

Using EMDR Therapy to Improve Mental Wellness

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an extensively researched, effective psychotherapy method proven to help people recover from trauma and other distressing life experiences, including PTSD, anxiety, depression, and panic disorders.

The American Psychiatric Association, the American Psychological Association, the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies, National Alliance on Mental Illness, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, the U.K. National Institute for Health and Care Excellence, the U.S. Dept. of Veterans Affairs/Dept. of Defense, The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, and the World Health Organization among many other national and international organizations recognize EMDR therapy as an effective treatment. 

With EMDR Therapy, you obtain quicker results in less time in comparison to “talk therapy”.


Welcome to Traumaology

It’s our goal to create a comfortable and safe environment where we will work together to accomplish the goals you desire on your journey to a healthier lifestyle.

As a traumaologist, I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor – Supervisor (LPCC-S) and Certified Clinical Trauma Professional.  I am a certified specialist in the branch of psychotherapy concerned with the assessment and treatment of both mental health and behavioral concerns or diagnoses that rooted in trauma and or overwhelming life experiences.  I am also a survivor of Complex – Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (CPTSD) and share in the tension you are feeling as a patient.  EMDR Therapy made a life altering difference in my life as a patient and many of my patients lives now as a practitioner.  At Traumaology, we want you to find calmer seas in your life and we do that through EMDR Therapy.

Safe Zone

Traumaology desires to identify and train clinicians, staff, patients, and the community who are sensitive and affirmative to the needs of sexual minorities, including lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, and intersex persons.  Our ultimate goal is to reduce the incidence of heterosexism and homophobia in our community through education, thereby promoting a community that is a safer and freer place for all, regardless of sexual orientation.
