I have trained in EMDR and I am currently in the process of working towards certification. This is an effective tool for working through trauma and any harmful messages/beliefs we have about ourselves.
I trained in Sand Tray Tberapy in 2016 and I utilize this in my office with adult clients who are "stuck in their heads" and need to connect with the more creative parts of their brain.
I've utilized DBT in group therapy and individual therapy for years. I appreciate the skill building component and it pairs nicely with the EMDR.
I used to run a Grief & Loss support group and I feel such a strong connection with this client population. Grief comes in many forms and for many reasons. I normalize grief and the impact it can have on every aspect of life.
I completed the PSI and 2020 Mom Professional Maternal Mental Health Certificate and the Advanced Perinatal Mental Health Certificate trainings. I am preparing to take the certification test. I am a professional member of Postpartum Support International (PSI: #40061).
I decided to specialize in maternal issues, such as infertility, after became a mother. I experienced infertility challenges and miscarriage and felt a deep connection to this community. I also developed post-partum anxiety/panic disorder and know much women this kind of support through the grief and fear.
