Hi I would be delighted to help you reduce anxiety and work through traumatic life experience, gain self esteem and deal with stressors.

Clinical Psychologist in Bismarck, ND

About My Clients

My clients are anxious adults who typically had suffered for many years with unresolved posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), specific fears and low self-esteem. I have been fortunate to be able to help many troubled individuals obtain relief through and counteract distress.

My Background and Approach

My experience as s a Psychologist has spanned 30+ years. Until recently, I had been the Neuropsychologist at St. Alexius Medical Center for 25 years. I have been a Certified Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapist for more than 20 years. I am no longer doing Neuropsychological testing and am dedicated to using EMDR to alleviate traumatic memories and fears and anxiety including panic. I am not effective at treating obsessive-compulsive disorder and do not work with couples or children.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that personal trauma and anxiety are reversible and I have been in position to be able to often resolve longstanding traumatic upset, typically within about 10 sessions. I believe that PTSD is often not diagnosed early for a few reasons. People do often do not want to share their very personal inner distress with others. Also, individuals with posttraumatic stress disorder often manifest more observable symptoms and may be easily diagnosed with anxiety, depression or personality disorder with trauma being overlooked for years. Lastly, I believe that some therapists may think they cannot treat PTSD effectively and may seek to treat other symptoms.
