TRAINING & CONSULTATION

INDIVIDUALS

In this line of work, there are a lot of topics that did not get fully covered in grad school. You may find there are some gaps in your knowledge base or cultural humility around working with and understanding the LGBTQ+ community or autistic community. Maybe you’ve got a complex case that you’d like a second set of ears and eyes on to bring fresh ideas or a different perspective.

Common consultation topics include:

  • autism (screening, accommodations, etc.)

  • gender dysphoria and euphoria

  • parenting autistic and/or trans youth

  • executive functioning

  • trans culture

  • autistic culture

  • kink and sex

  • sensory regulation strategizing

  • "gifted kids", "2e students", "highly sensitive people"

  • writing letters for gender affirming medical treatment

  • navigating unmasking as a teen or adult

  • using play therapy techniques


I am passionate about case consultation with other clinicians. I believe that the more knowledge is shared, the better service we can provide, especially to marginalized populations that are still not widely featured in curriculum. If you're looking for a deep dive into a case or multiple cases, please reach out. I charge a $200 session rate for the full 50 minutes for a one-on-one appointment. This fee allows me to provide reduced rate supervision for newly graduated clinicians working toward licensure.

Please note that I am open to providing paid consult support via phone, video call, and/or in-person, depending on your needs. This can be recurring support or one-time support as needed.

I assume we will be meeting via Zoom unless something else is requested.

Clinical Supervision for Social Workers & Play Therapists

I am currently full for supervisees.

GROUPS

NOTE: At this time, I am booked for speaking opportunities until July 2024.

I love speaking with educators, school counselors, and therapists about how to best support autistic youth, LGBTQ+ youth AND how to support guardians of LGBTQ+ and/or autistic youth.

I also enjoy talking about the fundamentals of Play Therapy, especially Child-Centered Play Therapy and creating group therapy curriculum.

My presentation style can best be described as a "loose lecture" - I prefer interactive discussion while presenting research and techniques. Small groups (4-10 participants) are my favorite but I have presented in front of much larger audiences (50+.) I welcome questions and encourage everyone to feel that they can ask whatever they need clarity on.

 

I have official presentations prepared around the following topics:

  • Neurodiversity Affirming Practice (2 hours)

  • The Clinical Fundamentals of Autism (2 hours)

  • The Clinical Fundamentals of Autism Through a Play Therapy Lens (3 hours)

  • Transgender Clients: Basic Knowledge (2 hours)

  • Working with Trans Adults (1.5 hours)

  • Play Therapy with Transgender Youth (4 hours)

  • Supporting Autistic Transgender Youth Decrease Dysphoria: The 5-S Framework (2 hours)

  • Supporting Students: Social Emotional Learning & De-escalation through a Play Therapy Framework (3 hours)

I am also open to speaking to groups based on my own personal experiences regarding mental health, autism, and being part of the LGBTQ+ community.

I am not currently an independent CEU provider.
