Hello, I can see clients on the weekends, as needed. I can see patients on Sat/Sunday as needed. I have over eighteen years experience working in mental health; several years working in an acute psychiatric setting; four years working in child welfare services and over two years working in forensics. I only offer telehealth counseling.
I am very familiar working with mood, psychotic and personality disorders. I hold anxiety workshops and study trauma. My treatment modalities include evidenced based treatment practices. I stress the importance of top down therapy (yoga, talk therapy); bottom up therapy (dancing, theatrics) as well as medication, as being possibilities for treatment.
I have facilitated Anger Management groups for probation/parolees. I also facilitate Anxiety Workshops on a 1:1 basis or in a group setting.
Special Trainings include: Residential Care Facility for the Elderly Administrator; Crisis Intervention Training; Crisis Prevention Intervention Instructor Training; Strengthening Families; Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Training; Structured Analysis Family Evaluation Certified; Mental Health First Aid; and Seeking Safety. I attend psycho-education and trainings on a regular basis to keep my practice up with what is being studied around us.
I also have been working in forensics now for four years (instead of two)
