RELATED EXPERIENCE

▪ Personal therapy: Have personally undergone individual, couple, and group therapy, and attended an emotional and verbal abuse weekend seminar, and a Relationship Rescue workshop; personal therapy has provided a strong understanding of the needs and benefits of a myriad of counseling processes.

▪ Child-related experience: Extensive background volunteering in local elementary schools, providing support to teachers at elementary grade levels; has also volunteered at the American School for the Deaf, providing the opportunity to interact with children with hearing and speech challenges. Raising a child diagnosed with ADHD and a language-based learning difference has provided me with insight to the parenting and family challenges that can arise.
