She has 10+ years experience working with anger management, anxiety, boundaries, stress, depression, dating issues, self-esteem, unwanted coping behaviors, and trauma. Her trauma experience includes working with adult female survivors of childhood sexual abuse. Ciara is trained in EMDR, and other modalities, and utilizes psycho-education to decrease symptoms and gain insight. She provides a validating and non-judgmental environment.
