Welcome... I am Shirley Williams, MSW, LCSW, NCTMB and I work in private practice from my home-studio in Longmont, Colorado. I received my MSW from Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan and have nearly 30 years of post-degree professional experience. I am also Licensed Massage Therapist/Bodywork Therapist having trained at Boulder College of Massage Therapy in the early 2000's. I have recently been trained in EMDR therapy and work with people who have performance-related sports or learning issues. My therapeutic philosophy is based on The Adaptive Information Processing model or AIP which is the cornerstone of EMDR. "Inherent in the AIP model is the concept of psychological self-healing, a construct based on the body's healing response to physical injury. "(Shipiro EMDR-Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, Second Edition, pg 32). At this time in my career, I am learning, myself, to integrate years of psychodynamic and family systems training into the newest theories of neurobiology. Please call to schedule a session based on your needs.
