About Louise

Louise is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker with over 23 years of experience as a mental health provider.  She did not learn about trauma recovery in a book and knows firsthand the importance of compassionate, non-judgmental care where client self-determination is honored and upheld.  She has been through a few life transitions of her own, which informs her approach with those who are adjusting to “new normals”, whether due to trauma, grief, military lifestyle, parenting, separation/divorce, or aging.

EMDR an accelerated trauma processing modality, has been a part of her practice for over 20 years. She is well-versed in the treatment of an array of conditions and utilizes a variety of different treatment modalities to best meet the needs of those she serves.  She grew up in a military lifestyle and has worked under a Department of Defense contract as a Military Family Life Consultant. Louise is trained in Discernment Counseling, a short-term approach that involves both partners in decision-making about marital relationships and is also a Level II Gottman Trained Couple’s Therapist. She is of the belief that one would not wait for a leaky pipe to flood the basement before giving it attention and repair, and sees mental health and relationship care in the same way.
