I received a masters degree specializing in counseling from Dallas Theological Seminary. This was a degree program specializing in the theories and techniques of counseling, as well as developing skills to help facilitate challenging life scenarios for families in need. Some of my favorite courses included normal human growth, lifestyle and career development, and the treatment of trauma.
I received extensive training on mediation, family law mediation, and domestic violence. I also received very specific training in helping families learn to problem solve and work together for the best interest of their children. I am a trained parent facilitator and coordinator.
I AM COMMITTED TO CONTINUING EXTENSIVE PLAY, ADOLESCENT AND FAMILY THERAPY TRAINING. Conferences and trainings I attended have included:
I spent nearly two years co teaching Children in the Middle, a seven hour co-parenting course designed to help support adults in raising children between two homes. Our service providers specialize in working with families dealing with transitions such as separation, divorce, or other family matters involving two homes.
New Ways for Families® helps divorcing and separating families as they transition into a new way of life. I spent two days learning techniques, training and guidelines to help divorcing families work to keep children out of the middle of conflict.
