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 and a Facilitator-in-Training with a strong interest in assisting clinicians to develop their clinical skills while at the same time examining 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 necessary means to keep an eye on our work and prevent burnout. Carmen has a strong interest in empowering Spanish-speaking bilingual clinicians who work with clients where English is their second language and further, are challenged by the cultural differences and language barriers that frequently arise the clinical work. Carmen provides consultation in person and virtually in English and Spanish.
