I am a trauma-informed therapist that focuses on how adverse experiences from the past affect our present day living.
Clinical Social Worker in Kingwood, TX
Supervised by Rebecca Stiemens - LCSW-S
As a past educator, 1st grade and special education teacher, I am comfortable with children/adolescents that are experiencing issues at home, school, or with peers/family members.
I am EMDR Trained and have focused the majority of my professional training on trauma, PTSD, and CPTSD.
I have experience as a professional with resourcing for individuals that suffer with anxiety and panic attacks. These tools include coping skills, mindfulness, and grounding exercises.
I have been trained with EMDR and use this modality with a number of my clients that present with PTSD and CPTSD.
I use this motivational interviewing with my clients that are trying to navigate in everyday life but may need guidance when obstacles or barriers come up.
I use CBT with children and adolescents to help them identify negative beliefs and how these conditioned responses can be changed to a healthier way of thinking.
