Do you see clients with trauma and need clinical or documentation support?  


βœ“ Want to increase your competence in trauma focused therapy? 

βœ“ Struggle with converting what you did in a session to a note? 

βœ“ Love the clinical work, but lack understanding of what you need for paperwork?

You are not alone.

Many talented clinicians feel overwhelmed with trauma therapy and the documentation involved.

That's why I'm here to help.

What I Do:


I integrate trauma-focused clinical training and documentation training for beginner and experienced therapists so that you can feel confident for every session and protect your license and your business.

My mission is not only to pass along clinical and documentation support to clinicians, but, as a woman of color, I strive to increase the diversity of the trauma therapy community.

Trauma work is hard.

Trauma documentation is just as hard.

Trauma work does not easily translate into insurance friendly language. As a group practice owner, I have witnessed and personally experienced the challenges of figuring out what to write in a chart. 

Using my years of experience, I've developed easy to use templates and simple steps to translate trauma sessions into sufficient documentation.
