More about Rhonda
Rhonda obtained a BS in Counseling Psychology from Rochester College in Michigan, a MS in Addiction Counseling from Grand Canyon University, and a MSW from the University of Southern California, as she moved to various parts of the country while juggling the roles of mom, student, and Army wife. Through the lens of systems theory, she believes that individuals are the sum of their parts and feels that if any part suffers then the whole person suffers. This encompasses mind, body, spirit and extends outwardly to relationships, spirituality, and other systems. Her goal as a clinician is to help individuals tap into their innate ability to heal injured parts of themselves by using an integrated approach to therapy that encourages personal growth. Her professional interests include supporting LGBTQ+ clients, big-T and small-t traumas, addiction, grief, mindfulness, and positive psychology. Rhonda utilizes a variety of treatment modalities and is a trained EMDR therapist. She is in yoga teacher training with the hopes of incorporating somatic therapy principles into her practice. Her favorite things include spending time with family and learning. She is an avid reader who also enjoys going to the movies, yoga, binge-watching shows, participating in book clubs, and practicing meditation. She looks forward to a time in the future when she can reignite her love of travel; in the meantime, she satisfies her quest of exploring the globe by watching House Hunters International.
