My trainings in body centered psychotherapies include Integrative Body Psychotherapy, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, and Inner Relationship Focusing. These trainings have been instrumental in developing a way of working with children and trauma that focuses on the sensory experience of trauma, developing body resources through the treatment process, and provides a safe, structured approach to trauma treatment.
My work with the National Institute of Trauma and Loss in Children (TLC) has also been instrumental in my learning as a therapist and as a trainer. I am an Advanced Certified Trauma Practitioner and Certified Agency Trainer with TLC.
The most powerful learning for me, comes from each client who enters into the therapeutic space. It is here where I learn the most. It is to my clients that I am most grateful.
