Therapeutic Focuses of Emotional Wellness
LGBTQ* and Gender Affirming Care
I provide a strong supportive focus on the LGBTQ* community; One of the main clinical
specialties offered is gender affirming care, in which a safe space is offered to transgender,
gender diverse, and gender non-conforming individuals to explore and better understand
their gender identity and expression, and to receive support around living authentically
and wholeheartedly. I have been working with transgender, gender diverse, and gender
non-conforming individuals, along with family members and significant others since 2014,
and support individuals with examining their personal identity and assisting them in
moving forward in life, however they determine that to be.
Dr. Brené Brown and The Daring Way™
Since late 2015/ early 2016, I have utilized Dr. Brené Brown’s research around the topics of
shame, authenticity and wholehearted living to support my clients in living their best lives;
In 2017, I attended training and obtained certification in her work as a Certified Daring
Way™ Facilitator. This has helped me better support my clients around topics such as
vulnerability, courage, shame, and worthiness, and this work invites individuals to examine
the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that are holding them back in life while identify
the new choices and practices that will move them toward more authentic and
wholehearted living. The primary focus is on developing shame resilience skills and
developing daily practices that transform the way we live, love, parent, and lead.
In 2012, I became trained in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT),
to provide evidence-based treatment for children and adolescents who have been
impacted by trauma, along with support for their parents or caregivers, followed by
completion of certification in 2014. In 2016, I became a Life is Good Playmaker,
to further help children heal from the impact of childhood trauma.
In 2019, I completed Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) training
to better address trauma and various stressors under Karen Alter-Reid, Ph.D.
at the National Institute for the Psychotherapies.
