She has devoted her life to helping others receive the treatment they need to rebuild their lives. Since graduating from Tulane University with her MSW, Ms. Appel has sharpened her focus on Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder as well as women’s issues such as addiction and codependency.
Her private practice continues to help individuals on the path to recovery or the healing process for the past two decades. Her extensive training includes individual, couples, family, group therapies, PTSD/Trauma work and EMDR training.

I want them to feel confident enough to realize that their quality of life is actually a result of their own actions and perceptions — not uncontrollable and unforeseeable events.
