Timi is a Licensed Professional Counselor who received her Master of Arts in Counseling from Colorado Christian University.

Our body and mind use amazingly complex and creative ways to cope with trauma, or distressing events. Some of the same defenses and processes that we originally developed to help deal with the sources of our pain end up blocking us from reaching a place of greater contentment and joy. Timi is trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), which research supports as one of the most effective therapies in resolving past trauma.
