I've been described by former and current clients as being genuine, approachable, trustworthy, and non-judgemental.
Clinical Social Worker in Pennsylvania
I have experience using client's pets (primarily dogs) to help client's facilitate change in their lives by learning about themselves, better understanding principles/application of behavior change and modification, increasing emotional awareness, improving communication skills, etc. I have attended several clinics with animal behaviorists and am a volunteer with the Penn Working Dog Center. Additionally, I learned a lot about myself through my own four-legged family members.
I use an integrative approach drawing from neuroscience, fundamental treatment theories (cognitive, behavioral, somatic, emotional, learning, development, attachment, etc.), and skill-building.
