I have approximately 15 years of experience with trauma related services, to include four trauma specialist certifications focused on military, emergency responders, disasters, medical trauma, and sexual assault victim populations. Over the past 5 years, I have been developing a comprehensive skillset to incorporate yoga, meditation, and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) into therapy.
