April Wise,


"There is a voice that doesn’t use words. Listen" Rumi


After 37 years, I am closing my therapy practice effective June 30th , 2022. These years have been more than a job for me; they have been an opportunity to walk with others thorough their evolution of healing.

If you are looking for a therapist, I have compiled a list of trusted colleagues following. Most of these clinicians are EMDR trained but you may also find others on the EMDRIA website; www.emdria.org. Click on “find a therapist.”

To say it has been a privilege being a therapist does not at all articulate what it’s meant to me. It continues to amaze me that people – all of us – can reach out and trust others even in the face of past failures, injustice, uncertainty, and heartbreak.  It is only through the window of hope that I have been able to provide a helping hand and the knowledge and skills available to me. And so if you are still searching, have hope. Change is difficult but affirming.

I will continue to be available as an EMDR Consultant by Zoom. If you are a trained clinician seeking consultation, please contact me as indicated below.
