I provide assessment and treatment of children, adolescents and families, specifically with children & teens experiencing emotional and behavioral problems. I have over 5 years experience in working with traumatized youth in a variety of settings such as Outpatient, Victims Advocacy, community settings, residential settings and school settings. I bring expertise to my practice from the field of foster care, attachment, grief and loss, adoption, trauma, and parenting. While I specialize in working with children and teens, I also utilize my skills with adults seeking trauma and grief treatment.
I have been trained in Adoption Clinical Training (ACT), Pathways to Permanence (a parenting curriculum for parenting kids with trauma), Seeking Safety, ITCI (Integrative Treatment of Complex Trauma), Play and Sand Tray therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy, and EMDR Integrative Attachment Trauma Protocol for Children.”
