Clinical Social Worker in Rockville, MD
I have been trained in DBT for both adults and adolescents. My training was through Behavioral Tech in person along with the following DBT consults that I attend weekly.
I have been trained and practiced CBT since the beginning of my career. I continue to take CBT trainings to keep myself up to date on the newer strategies relating to CBT.
I have gone through the extensive training in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy through University of Maryland and have gone through 6 months of supervision following the extensive training.
I have worked extensively with clients struggling with self-harming behaviors. I have worked in a Partial Hospitalization Program and Intensive Outpatient Program that often included work with adults and adolescents working to change their self-harming behaviors. I have been trained in Dialectic Behavioral Therapy to help work on both distress tolerance to decrease the impulses as well as interpersonal skills to be able to express their emotions more effectively.
I have worked with many clients from childhood through geriatrics that have struggled with PTSD. I have studied Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in order to be able to provide more support for my clients struggling with PTSD as well as begin to process and find ways to manage their symptoms.
I have had the honor of working in a variety of settings with adolescents from high schools to Partial Hospitalization Programs. I have experience working with clients dealing with the struggle of growing up and gaining independence as well as with adolescents struggling with deeper issues from trauma, attachment issues, and relationship problems.
