Somatic and Attachment-Focused EMDR Therapy, Training and Consultation
I've been a therapist for over 20 years. In that time I've had the honor of working with many brave, amazing people and witness extraordinary resilience! I am grateful for the opportunity to do this work each day and have committed myself to continued learning, training and honing of my skills.
I am an EMDRIA-Certified EMDR Therapist, Consultant and Trainer. In addition, I am an Advanced Student of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and a Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Level One Training Assistant.
Registered LPC Intern
As a therapist, I provide a trauma-focused and person-centered approach to help individuals make their own choices to move toward a healthy lifestyle. I believe people can become more in balance with themselves and in their relationships by understanding themselves and becoming aware of their needs and issues. I offer a treatment approach toward healing which includes EMDR with a Somatic and Attachment focus lens. EMDR helps to move the storage of a disturbing memory to a more functional part of the brain. This approach focuses on providing lasting relief from symptoms that are causing a disturbance in life today.
My intention is to create a safe therapeutic space that fosters learning, healing, and growth from whatever aspects in life that may need attention and healing. My approach is intended to support a safe space for the healing and integration of mind, body, heart, spirit, and relationships from trauma. As people may walk forward in the presence and connection with who they truly are.
My name is Rosie and I’ve been working in the healthcare industry for 5 years. I started at Lane Community College and received a certificate in Healthcare Administration, and my first position after school was in the dental field.
I enjoy helping people and guiding them in understanding their insurance. I believe communication is the most important tool when it comes to billing. Insurance can seem like a language of its own and that’s where I want to help!
I have two dogs, I love to run, and I read in my spare time. I’m also currently learning Danish for a trip abroad in the future.
Child and Family Trauma
When human beings experience trauma or severe life stressors, it is not uncommon for their lives to unravel and functioning to become challenging in many ways. My passion is bringing healing and hope to children, adolescents and families who have survived a traumatic or stressful experience. I enjoy helping them find a more positive, healthier perception of themselves while strengthening their resources, relationships and own unique qualities so they are able to know themselves as peaceful, whole and safe.
I understand each human is an individual and processes their own unique way. As both an EMDR therapist and a play therapist, I incorporate a unique blend of sensory, play, music, somatic work and movement into EMDR as necessary to benefit each individual client’s needs and processing ability.
My educational background includes a MA in Child Development and Abnormal Psychology and a MSW in Social Work/Therapy Tract from University of Iowa in Iowa City, IA. In 2008 I was honored to receive a Certificate of Recognition of the Governor of Iowa for Exemplary Service to the State of Iowa and in 2017, I again was blessed to receive Oregon’s Children’s Champion Award.
Therapy Dog In-Training
I completed my Therapy Dog Preparation Class in 2016 and continue on-the-job training at Oregon EMDR, LLC. I hope to become a Registered Therapy Dog in the near future.
