Areas of Expertise
Trauma is not new to us; however, the understanding of trauma and it's impact on the brain is constantly changing. I have spent many years immersing myself in the field of trauma to be able to help the individuals I see achieve a sense of meaning and purpose after experiencing a traumatic event(s).
Addictions is a growing health epidemic and the knowledge in how to counsel those who are addicted is sparse. I have continued to further my knowledge in this field, and continue to help educate and train those who wish to enter into this field.
I enjoy conducting training's on various topics, especially related to the impact of trauma and addictions on youth. I have done several training's outside of my home state and continue to welcome the opportunity to network and meet with others while training. Please contact me if interested in scheduling a training!
I believe that each individual knows how to heal themselves. Sometimes, it just takes a caring person to listen.
I have been trained in a wide variety of treatment modalities and will integrate them into counseling whenever I feel it is appropriate. Those modalities include: EMDR, Play therapy, Sand Tray, Expressive Therapies, CFTSI, and TF-CBT to name a few.
