What Training do you Have?

Updated: Mar 28, 2020

In addition to my education and extensive professional training, I continually update my qualifications by staying current with the latest research. Here are a few of the trainings I attended in 2020:


Telehealth for Mental Health Professionals: 2-Day Distance Therapy Training

Faculty: Joni Gilbertson, MA, NCC, LCPC, BC-TMH, is a licensed clinical professional counselor, Board-Certified Telemental Health Provider and the owner/founder of COPE Counseling Services, LLC where she uses telemental health to assist individuals, couples and families with everyday coping in areas such as relationship, depression, suicide, and general coping skills. She is a Board-certified Telemental Health Provider with years of experience seeing clients using distance counseling. Her counseling centers specialize in treatment for both adults and children.


Certified Anger Management Treatment Professional: 2-Day Certification Course

Faculty: Dr. Jeff Peterson, PhD, LCPC, LPC, NCC, PCCis a nationally certified counselor and licensed professional counselor who is a faculty member in the clinical counseling program at Northwestern University in Chicago. He also maintains a private practice where he focuses on anger issues, managing stress, couples therapy, anxiety and depression, dealing with shame and addiction, and sexual or gender identity issues.


EMDR: Step by Step: New In-Session Demonstrations

Faculty: Bessel A. van der Kolk, M.D., is a clinician, researcher and teacher in the area of post-traumatic stress.  His work integrates developmental, neurobiological, psychodynamic and interpersonal aspects of the impact of trauma and its treatment.

Dr. van der Kolk and his various collaborators have published extensively on the impact of trauma on development, such as dissociative problems, borderline personality and self-mutilation, cognitive development, memory, and the psychobiology of trauma.  He has published over 150 peer reviewed scientific articles on such diverse topics as neuroimaging, self-injury, memory, neurofeedback, Developmental Trauma, yoga, theater, and EMDR. 

He is founder of the Trauma Center in Brookline, Massachusetts, and President of the Trauma Research Foundation, which promotes clinical, scientific, and educational projects. 

His 2014 #1 New York Times best seller, The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Treatment of Trauma, transforms our understanding of traumatic stress, revealing how it literally rearranges the brain’s wiring – specifically areas dedicated to pleasure, engagement, control, and trust.  He shows how these areas can be reactivated through innovative treatments including neurofeedback, somatically based therapies, EMDR, psychodrama, play, yoga, and other therapies.

Dr. van der Kolk is the past president of the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies, and professor of psychiatry at Boston University Medical School.  He regularly teaches at conferences, universities, and hospitals around the world.


Certificate Course: ARC Trauma Treatment for Children and Adolescents

Faculty: Margaret E. Blaustein, Ph.D., is a practicing clinical psychologist whose career has focused on the understanding and treatment of complex childhood trauma and its sequelae. With an emphasis on the importance of understanding the child-, the family-, and the provider-in-context, her study has focused on identification and translation of key principles of intervention across treatment settings, building from the foundational theories of childhood development, attachment, and traumatic stress.

With Kristine Kinniburgh, Dr. Blaustein is co-developer of the Attachment, Self-Regulation, and Competency (ARC) treatment framework (Kinniburgh & Blaustein, 2005), and co-author of the text, Treating Complex Trauma in Children and Adolescents: Fostering Resilience through Attachment, Self-Regulation, and Competence (Blaustein & Kinniburgh, 2010). She has provided extensive training and consultation to providers within the US and abroad. Dr. Blaustein is currently the Director of Training and Education at The Trauma Center at JRI in Brookline, MA, and is actively involved in local, regional, and national collaborative groups dedicated to the empathic, respectful, and effective provision of services to this population.
