My passion for truly understanding people’s personal experiences, feelings and their challenges go back as far as I can remember, and allows me to provide the best support possible during times of need.
Whether you are seeking help individually, as a couple, or as a family, I strive to make you feel that I understand what’s going on in your life in a supportive, warm and sensitive manner as we discuss, explore and develop deeper insights into your current challenges

She has also trained with leading professionals to learn how to help couples work through and process affairs along with PTSD events.
Devon is also a EMDRIA Certified Therapist. This allows her to focus in on, and work with, traumas her clients may have experienced at any point in life. Devon has completed additional training for complex trauma and the use of EMDR. Part of certification is to conduct at least 50 hours of EMDR therapy and in order to show your ability to diversify in different scenarios you are required to work with at least 25 different clients. In addition, clinical assessment and supervision from an EMDR supervisor has allowed Devon to improve her methodology and skills to provide clients the best possible therapy.
Devon has experience treating individuals, couples, families in both private practice and agency settings and has also worked internationally.
