I am here to support you as a fellow traveler on the journey toward a better life.
Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern in DeLand, FL
Supervised by Aimee Jennings, LMHC
Through a combination of training and lived experience, I offer a safe place to explore and better understand gender identity and sexuality.
I have taken advanced trainings on the treatment of trauma and dissociation and integrate EMDR, parts work and sand tray with clients who experience dissociation. I am an active member of the International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation.
I read extensively on trauma and attend trainings in evidence-based trauma modalities, including ART (Accelerated Resolution Therapy), EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and Internal Family Systems. I have experienced these therapies as a client myself and consider myself privileged to be able to offer others the breakthrough healing I have experienced personally. I am an active member of the International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation.
I am trained and experienced with EMDR for a variety of issues, including trauma and PTSD, complex PTSD, agoraphobia, and panic disorder.
I received my training in Sand Tray Therapy from the Institute of Playful Healing and am working toward certification. I am trained and experienced in use of sand tray with individual trauma work, children and adolescents, couples, families and groups.
I am trained in Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) for the treatment of trauma and PTSD. For those who have experienced a single-incident trauma, like a car accident or natural disaster, ART can provide relief in very few sessions.
