Connie Dummer, MA, LP, MLFT, Psychologist in Wayzata
Do you feel weighed down by trauma, grief, or loss? Do you experience sadness, or intrusive memories of previous experiences? If so, my specialty is working with people like you. I have extensive experience with all types of trauma survivors, including survivors of sexual and physical abuse. I am grounded in a solid Christian faith and am comfortable exploring all aspects of spirituality. I have strengths in the areas of empathy, positivity, winning others over, and strategy.
I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitation and Reprossessing to help relieve symptoms like intrusive thoughts or nightmares. I facilitate a group in Dialectical Behavior Therapy that helps people learn life skills. I am a registered play therapist as well.
My agency is known for work with people who experienced trauma early in life. We specialize in work with people whose early life experiences interfere with their ability to have successful relationships. We accept multiple insurances; check out our website for more information and video clips.
