I'm especially invested in helping health and human service agencies build capacity for service to others. I've been fortunate to present workshops and trainings regionally, nationally, and internationally. I offer opportunities for mental health professionals, social workers, and educators to better engage clients and students. We'll not only learn new interventions and techniques; we'll discuss theories and learning models which can help you tap into your own creativity for use with your clients and students.
The last several years of my career have been dedicated to enhancing professionals' capacities to be effective in the trauma field. Using experiential activities and many group exercises, I engage people in ways that enhance knowledge about how to help people overcoming traumatic experiences. This may include anything from exploring trauma informed care, to learning ways to recognize and minimize the effects of secondary trauma for front-line workers and managers of trauma serving organizations.
Consultation can mean many things to different people and organizations. I'll gladly make time with you to discuss your needs. I'm adept at program development which incorporates vision planning, evidence-based practices, assessments, and client and staff feedback. We'll take time to strategize the best format for interventions with your organization. Schedule a free phone consultation so we can explore some options.
If you're a therapist or group facilitator looking for new ways of enhancing group sessions or family-based services for your clients, let's talk. I'll gladly work with you to identify group and family enrichment techniques using experiential exercises. These techniques can be used anywhere from an office to natural areas in our community.
If you work with a group of therapists interested in learning new experiential techniques, I can facilitate workshops for you to help with that goal while highlighting connections you share with each other.
This one is pretty special! I've been able to work with other therapists and facilitators for group or family sessions. Part of this process is pre-session planning to explore the logistics and possibilities of taking your clients on a ropes course, to do archery, or to build primitive fires. We normally collaborate to enhance client communication skills, augment in-office relaxation or coping skills with an adventure activity, or celebrate a client's termination from counseling with an outdoor activity.
After the session, I'll take time to post-session with you to explore strategies for supporting your clients whether our collaboration lasts a single session or longer.
Also worth noting is that it's just been fun to work with some with pretty amazing clinicians in our community.
