Professional statement

Virginia's clients experience anxiety, depression, emotional dysregulation, impulse control, and high-risk behaviors. Her clients have survived foster care, POWs, housing instability, drug abuse, war, COVID-19, grief/loss, neglect, and other abuses. Virginia utilize client-centered treatment that stabilizes crises and provides the client and their support systems with tools to overcome current and future stresses they may face. Virginia takes a holistic approach to treatment that includes the client, their sense of self, family, and extended support systems.

Virginia is trained in trauma-informed care that provides tools to manage stressors and triggers while facilitating a safe environment to process trauma with EMDR and other techniques suitable to the client's individual needs. Virginia works to establish trust and rapport by looking at the client as a human in their whole with layers and complex interests and experiences. Virginia's goal is for an hour a week her clients feel safe to do the hard work with someone they know truly cares and engages with them in where they are at any point during treatment.

Virginia worked with foster care and probation youth in placements as well as therapeutic group home settings and in transitional high school as an on-site therapist. Virginia has also worked with senior populations who were experiencing the transitions into dependent care as well as hospice. Virginia was also honored, in this population, to work with Holocaust survivors and provide them clinical care and case management. Virginia worked within the recovery population utilizing harm reduction and medicated assisted treatment to address the client's recovery goals. Virginia now works primarily with a wide variety of adult-aged individuals who seek symptom reduction and comprehensive treatment for their trauma.

Virginia specializes in telehealth with virtual EMDR interventions so clients can receive treatment from their own home.

Message to clients

It's a pleasure to meet you! It is a big (and sometimes scary) decision to seek therapy and I am so glad you are considering me to guide you on this journey. Trauma survivors are so often left feeling disconnected and disempowered in their lives and physical body. When we utilize EMDR in healing trauma we are helping the brain untangle the web of pain created by traumatic events that our bodies store in the central nervous system and allow it space to heal undisturbed. In fact, studies show that the brain continues to heal after an EMDR reprocessing session.

The beauty of EMDR is little needs to be said and everything has to be gained. Healing is a long, hard journey, so let's start you on your way today and get you back into harmony and homeostasis. I also offer intensive (2-3 hour long) sessions) for patients paying out of pocket.

Send me a text or email at any time so we can set up a free 15-minute consultation and see if we're a good fit to partner in your treatment.
