I received specialized training in Clinical Art Therapy at while receiving my masters at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. Additionally, I am a Registered Art Therapist are conferred by the Art Therapy Credentials Board (ATCB). I often use Art Therapy in conjunction with other evidenced-based treatments such as EMDR, IFS, or CBT both with children and adults.
My knowledge of Internal Family Systems (IFS) was initially built through supervision and educational trainings and has evolved through my work with clients in my practice. I have been able to successfully integrate IFS with practices such as EMDR and Art Therapy to treat issues such as: PTSD, sexuality/gender-related stress, depression, anxiety, family & relationship stress, and substance abuse.
I am an EMDR Trained clinician and received my training through the EMDR Institute. I am actively strengthening my ability to heal trauma through by active participation in EMDR consultation groups and educational opportunities. I have decided to deepen my knowledge through the pursuit of an EMDR Credential. I can provide a highly effective and researched way for you to fully heal from traumatic experiences.
