Annette C. King, LCSW-R

Annette is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a 1996 graduate of the Syracuse University School of Social Work. She has 24 years experience working with individuals whose lives have been impacted by domestic violence, rape, and sexual abuse: having worked for the Rape Crisis Center of Syracuse and then Vera House for 19 of those years. Annette works with clients with symptoms of PTSD and the effects of sexual abuse on sexuality and personal relationships.  She also treats those experiencing anxiety, depression, chronic illness, grief and loss,  including loss in childbirth, healthy relationships and spirituality. She enjoys helping clients discover their abilities to have conversations instead of arguments and learning the boundaries involved.  Annette is trained in the utilization of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, or EMDR, with victims of both trauma and grief. She also works with the Trauma Resource Institute’s Trauma Resiliency Model, a tool for clients to learn to center and ground themselves.  She believes in the healing power of laughter: when her clients can again laugh, she knows they are on the path toward healing.  Annette works with individuals 18 and over.
