As a member of the LGBTQIA2S+ community, I have a lifetime of lived experience. I stay in-touch with other providers and members of the community. I seek specialized training to continue my knowledge of treating the specific issues that arise with this population (such as LGBTQIA2S+ informed TFCBT).
I stay up-to-date on the most affirmative therapy I can provide for therapy regarding gender identity. I also come from a background with lived experience in this area.
I have training in trauma art therapy. I also have trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TFCBT) training and I am working toward certification. I currently work at a trauma informed clinic.
My Master's education focused on Art Therapy and I have continued my studies in the field post-graduation as well. I am always looking for new ways to incorporate art therapy settings.
I am well versed in different schools of thought and utilize what orientation works best for my client.
