Carmen Gehrke, LMHC, is a Spanish-speaking, bilingual EMDR psychotherapist in private practice in Palm Beach Gardens, FL. Carmen graduated with a Master of Arts in Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling from University of South Florida in 2010. She is licensed in Florida, Delaware, and Pennsylvania and maintains a hybrid practice. Carmen’s practice is focused on treating adults with complex PTSD, anxiety, depression, grief, loss, developmental trauma, anger management, and attachment trauma.
Carmen trained in EMDR in 2013 and is an EMDRIA-approved Consultant with a strong interest in assisting clinicians to grow their skills honoring the needs and wants of their clients while honoring their own reactions and processes as clinicians, so feeling “stuck” is never a problem but an opportunity to grow. She believes consultation is part of each clinician’s duty to provide the best clinical work but also a mature way to keep an eye on our work and prevent burnout. Carmen has a strong interest in empowering Spanish-speaking bilingual clinicians and who work with clients whose English is their second language and are challenged by the cultural and language barriers in their clinical work. She provides consultation in person and virtually in English and Spanish.
