About Gretchen Friedlander
My professional background is varied, with an undergraduate degree from Wake Forest in chemistry, a law degree from the University of North Carolina, and a Masters of Counseling from Arizona State University. I have been in the counseling field since 2005. I worked as both a primary and family counselor at The Meadows, a world-renown inpatient treatment facility addressing trauma and addiction issues. At The Meadows, I worked extensively with families whose loved ones struggled with anxiety, depression, or a host of addictions.I began my practice to be able to support people more directly with SE and EMDR, as their holistic approach meshes well with my desire to support wholeness in mind, body and spirit.
I am qualified to provide sessions at the Beginning level for Somatic Experiencing participants.
