Audrey studied at Antioch University, Santa Barbara, earning a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy. Her work in the mental health field began over 20 years ago working in a residential treatment program with children. Continuing her work through in-patient and outpatient programs, school based programs, in-home based programs and private practice settings Audrey demonstrates a passionate devotion to the field of healing mind, body, and spirit.
Audrey creates a safe place as she guides clients through an inner process of acceptance, compassion, healing, and personal authenticity addressing issues of depression, anxiety, trauma, co-occurring disorders, relationship issues, and various life transitions. By utilizing a client-entered approach, she meets each client where they are to begin the process of healing. With training and experience as an EMDR-AF (eye movement desensitization reprocessing-attachment focused) clinician, Audrey is able to support you as you explore and safely process unresolved trauma that is often at the root of emotional dysregulation, opening the way for you and your loved ones to experience a healthier, more emotionally balanced life.
In her free time, Audrey is likely to be found with a paintbrush, shovel, or hammer in her hand as she is always in the process of improving her home. Also finding time to enjoy the shenanigans of having three boxers in the home, cooking, gardening, and enjoying time with friends and loved ones living the mantra of “we are all a work in progress.”
