Licensed Clinical Social Worker - Candidate in Cedar Park, TX
I have several years of experience working with kids, teens, and adults experiencing post-traumatic stress symptoms. I recently worked as a Child & Family Therapist at the Williamson County Children's Advocacy Center, giving me to opportunity to provide trauma therapy full-time. In addition, I am certified in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT).
Self-harm is a symptom associated with many mental health disorders. I strongly believe that finding out why a person self-harms is the most important part of changing this behavior. I use a harm-reduction approach to self-harming behaviors in order to let clients heal at their own pave, empowering them to use healther, safer coping skills in the future.
One of my first jobs in mental health was working with children experiencing problematic sexual behaviors - since then, I've specialized in treating these issues, gaining knowledge and skills as I practice.
