Become a Certified Family Trauma Professional

Early in my career, I received a referral for a client who set a school on fire. He was 10 and had been on probation since the age of 7.

He had worked one-on-one with many talented and bright therapists, yet none had successfully improved his behavior.

Many doubted this child could overcome his behaviors, but I saw hope. In 2006, I attended his college graduation, and in 2009, I watched him graduate from law school. They were some of the proudest moments in my career.

But how did I succeed where so many others failed?

The answer is simple: I boldly stepped away from traditional mental health strategies of working one-on-one with a child struggling with the toxic stress of trauma, and instead, I treated his entire family as one unit in every session.

And I’ve seen the same positive outcomes with hundreds of clients over my 17-year career as a Certified Family Trauma Professional. Now you can learn my tools and strategies to help dramatically improve your client outcomes with my intensive Certified Family Trauma Professional (CFTP) Online Training.
