Continuing Education

The wonderful byproduct of loving being a therapist is the passion I have to bring the best version of myself into the therapy room. I consistently engage in continuing education and various consultation groups to keep myself clinically sharp and to be able to bring you, my client, the most effective modalities in the field.  Here are some of the additional coursework I have taken to increase my capacity to meet your therapeutic needs.
