I am a licensed clinical social worker with a specialty in infant mental health and reflective practice. Wondering about another's mind takes practice. Reflective function is a skill. My work with infants, young children and their caregivers is where I learned about reflection. Now, I am passionate about helping others build their reflective skills. I have a private practice where I work with individuals and families, specializing in parenting stress and relationships. I am conveniently located in the south metro and am willing to travel to any location.
I am endorsed for culturally sensitive, relationship-focused practice promoting Infant Mental Health® as an Infant Mental Health Specialist.
I have over a decade of experience in a home visiting program for new parents. During my work I participated in reflective supervision/consultation individually and in multi-disciplinary groups.
Since 2012, I have lead or co-lead reflective practice groups and provided individual reflective supervision.
I have had the amazing opportunity to be a co-author and instructor for the University of Minnesota's CEED Center for Reflective Practice at the University of Minnesota. I have co-authored RIOS™ 1: Using the RIOS™ Framework for Reflective Supervision I have also authored one of CEED's self-study modules entitled, Wondering with a Purpose: Reflection in any Setting. If you are interested in taking any of these courses please contact CEED Center for Reflective Practice.
