1. Keynote Speaking -
Law enforcement officers have great information to share with people. I take my experiences as an officer, as a wife of an officer and as a social worker and integrate them into a fun and educational format for others to learn and grow from.
--- MORE THAN A COP -- This is an 8 hour seminar for law enforcement officers and their spouses. The seminar takes the officers and their spouse through the struggle of being in a law enforcement family and strenthens the need for positive communication and healthy self care. The seminar is interactive, allowing officers and their spouses to work on their own struggles and find the ultimate answer to being 100% family!!
---Other seminars upon request.
3. Providing therapy for law enforcement officers and other first responders
Treatment specialization includes:
• Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
• Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
• Work and Career issues
• Stress Management
• Conflict Resolution
I work with a wide range of first responders focusing on the care and treatment for those who serve our communities. I utilize EMDR therapy to focus on immediate relief with long term effects on PTSD symptoms and acute stress. As a law enforcement officer myself, I understand the daily stressors of being an officer. I take my experience as an officer and integrate it into the therapy environment to provide an understanding and focused environment.
4. Critical Incident Debriefings
The need for taking care of officers and first responders starts with identifying the critical incidents that can break a career. It is the responsibility of the administration to take care of their employees and to ensure the mind of a first responder is as healthy as it can be. My method of critical incident debriefings focuses on the point of trauma for each individual on scene. The participants of the debriefing will experience group EMDR and find relief in the level of distress caused by the traumatic event.
5. Domestic Violence Training
I am a certified domestic violence trainer who specializes in educating officers about the sensitivity and heightened awareness of such calls. I also have developed a program to educate departments and officers about officer involved domestic violence and the potential risks to those who are responding.
6. Spouse Education
Often times spouses don't understand the effects that being a first responder may have on the family life. When this occurs, families struggle thus the result of a higher divorce rate for those who are first responders. I offer training seminars that break down the effects of being a law enforcement officer and how that may effect the family. Also included in the trainings are tools to identify signs and self care tools to support spouses.
