Families...the first place we learn to navigate relationships. When one person in the family is struggling, the whole family is effected. No one person is an island. When kids are struggling, families benefit from providing support to parents, siblings as well. Family work is an important and valuable part of the work.
It can be intimidating to make the first step needed to make tomorrow stronger and better than today. Before I can effect change in any situation, I need to start with me. This relationship I value and am thankful to be trusted to walk the healing journey with you.
Our most trusted relationships are our most vulnerable ones. Dancing with our significant partner can be hurtful at times. Coming together we will learn how to increase effective, kind and honest communication as well as how to authentically connect.
HALO (Healing, Attachment, Loving, Outreach) Project is a 10-week intensive outpatient intervention designed to meet the unique and diverse needs of children in foster care, children that have been adopted or children that exhibit difficulty in the area of attachment.
HALO Project relies heavily on the Trust Based Relational Intervention model created by Dr. Karyn Purvis and Dr. David Cross at the TCU Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development.
Families that participated in HALO Project experienced a decrease in relational frustration with their child, an increase in attachment, and parenting confidence. See HALO Project for more information

One of the most important decisions you can make as a budding therapist is choosing your clinical/licensure supervisor. Your supervisor helps shape your practice ideals, encourages growth, challenges norms, supports self care and becomes part of your professional inner voice. Whomever you choose, choose someone you click with, someone who you want to spend time, you respect, admire and will be able to accept guidance and correction from.
I have been a supervisor since 2011 and truly enjoy watching people grow into strong, sturdy, engaged therapists. Watching a licensee navigate their expectations and ideals as they begin this branch/leg of their professional journey is an exciting part of supervision.
