About Emily

I earned my MSW at Hunter College School of Social Work in New York City in 2002.  While working in community mental health in Brooklyn, New York, I developed a particular interest in working with trauma.  For me, this meant starting to understand how people developed normal reactions to abnormal circumstances, rather than focusing on pathology.

Post- Masters training includes:

-Advanced Certificate from the Trauma Studies Center at the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy, 2007

-Certification in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, 2007, EMDR International Association

-Completed beginning year of Somatic Experiencing, 2009

-EMDRIA Approved Consultant, 2010.

-Stephen Mitchell Center for Relational Studies, 2010

I enjoy going to trainings, conferences and workshops, and eagerly seek to expand my clinical knowledge.  I worked at the 9/11 Mental Health Program at Safe Horizon, and later as the Clinical Director at Friends of Firefighters.  I also maintained a part time private practice in Brooklyn, NY.

After eleven years in the concrete jungle fighting traffic to get to the outdoors, I relocated to Laramie, Wyoming in 2011 where I have enjoyed being in a small community and take advantage of the hiking, biking, skiing and sky-gazing.
