I have had advanced trainings in crisis management and suicide prevention, and as a requirement by the agency I work for, I have been certified by the National Academy of Cognitive Therapy as a competent Cognitive Behavior Therapist. I have continued to further my education with advanced trainings in CBT and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. I am also a certified practitioner in Rapid Resolution Therapy, a solution-focused therapy that helps to eliminate negative emotions, feelings, and behaviors. Developed by Dr. Jon Connelly, Rapid Resolution Therapy is especially useful at clearing the effects of trauma and PTSD within just a few sessions.
I am also trained in EMDR and am currently learning and utilizing methods from Somatic Experiencing developed by Dr. Peter Levine. Additionally, I am at the beginning stages of learning Pia Mellody’s Post Induction Therapy model for family of origin work, codependency, and healing developmental and relational trauma.
Lastly, I have advanced training in hypnosis and hypnotherapy, as I am certified in 5-PATH hypnosis and am a certified teacher of 7th Path Self-Hypnosis. I have been trained in the most advanced hypnosis and hypnotherapy techniques used today, which are extremely helpful in transforming problematic symptoms, behaviors, and habits. I am also a member of the National Guild of Hypnotists, one of the oldest and largest hypnosis organizations in the world.
