Areas of Expertise
As a Certified Trauma Therapist, I am to provide trauma informed treatment into the therapeutic setting. I am unique in trauma therapy in that I do not force a client to discuss his/her traumas. I work towards building the therapeutic rapport and allow the client to discuss their trauma at his/her pace. I have attended Internal Family Systems (IFS) training. Once I obtain my LPC, I will also be a Certified Clinical Trauma Therapist and Certified in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. In September, I will be able to provide Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
Solution Focused Therapy
I strive to utilize a Solution Focused Therapeutic Model. This technique works well with men and military. As a clinician, I work with you towards identifying the presenting problem that brought you to therapy and work towards a resolution or solution to this problem.
Play therapy is a technique used for toddlers and children. Although I am not a Registered Play Therapist at the present time, I have some training in implementing Play Therapy techniques to aid in behavior management of and processing of traumatic events of toddlers and children.
