Professional & Clinical Consultation

Humans are complex. It can feel lonely and difficult to transition from regular support and consultation in a graduate school or internship setting, to working more independently as a therapist. It is inevitable that challenges will arise in this field that would benefit from a second opinion and additional support.

I’ll provide a space where you can receive professional support, become more confident about your role as a therapist, and grow personally as you discuss and learn from your experiences. Whether it is a one time phone call, an ongoing consultation relationship, or an occasional space to sort out options as they come up, I am here to provide direction in a non-judgmental way. I have experience as a supervisor and clinical director in a trauma focused mental health agency as well as experience shifting and forming my own career and practice. I am trained in EMDR and Brainspotting and regularly implement these techniques with clients that have complex trauma experiences.

Training topics may include, but are not limited to:

  • Compassion fatigue, burnout, and secondary trauma
  • Body safety and abuse
  • How to speak to your children about sex, pornography and abuse
  • Postpartum and perinatal mental health
  • Art therapy techniques
  • Play therapy techniques
  • Trauma therapy interventions including EMDR and Brainspotting
  • Anxiety and Depression with teens
  • How trauma impacts our brain
