Hello and welcome to my site. My name is Rochelle and I'm glad you'e here and I hope to help you on your journey to feeling better. I am a licensed clinical social worker in a private practice setting who specializes in adult individual therapy and marital therapy. As a Christian, I feel it is important to counsel in a way that is consistent within the context of this framework.
With over 19 years experience as an individual and marriage therapist, I enjoy working with a broad spectrum of clients. Among my areas of specialty are: EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) for trauma resolution, recovery from childhood abuse, anxiety and depressive disorders, and posttraumatic stress. I also specialize in marriage counseling and holds a "pro-marriage" approach to counseling in this area.
I believe that symptoms are most often not dysfunctions, but rather, patterns of belieiving and relating that are no longer helpful in current life situations. I believe that most psychological discomfort exists for valid reasons and can be relieved once treated at the root of the problem. Complementary therapy approaches and techniques are integrated to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. With compassion and understanding, I will work with each individual to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.
