In 2015, she was trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) from Behavioral Tech. Since then, she has been fine tuning the application of DBT into individual therapy, parent coaching, and family therapy.

She brings training to businesses looking to provide mental health and relationship education to their staff. She leads in-school conversations for students to destigmatize mental health awareness. And she has incorporated aspects of all of these trainings for parents in schools and religious communities, to bring preventative content directly into the hands, ears, and hearts of people who need it!
