Antoinette has extensive training in EMDR Therapy (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), SandPlay Therapy, and Perinatal Mental Health. The World Health Organization has endorsed only two therapeutic methods for treating PTSD; EMDR therapy is one of those.
To enhance her therapeutic skills, Antoinette is also trained in the following; CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy), expressive arts therapy, mindfulness based therapy, mental health diagnosis, psychodynamic therapy, and trauma treatment. Antoinette is a natural with all age groups, but especially loves to work with little bitties (which is kind of hard right now during COVID-19), teens, and women working through issues of motherhood and childhood trauma.
In undergrad, Antoinette spent a semester abroad in Moscow, Russia. This deepened her love and passion for multi-cultural appreciation. Antoinette has spent time and combed through the best research to develop an anti-racism training for other mental health professionals.
Antoinette has been married for what feels like a hundred years, has two kiddos, two energetic dogs, and loves to cook all kinds of Mexican food, or let's be real, Tex-Mex food. She is on the board of the North Texas Chapter Play Therapy Association and served three years on the PTA board of her children's school. Oh, and she is finally learning how to play chess!
