Twilynn is also a certified instructor and provides training in crisis intervention. She trains in business, school and clinical settings. Twilynn’s goals and approach to her work stems from the belief that everyone wants to live at their full potential but don’t always know how.
Clients drive the treatment process because it is all about them. She sees herself as the facilitator of bringing out hidden, individual and/or family strengths that are being under-utilized, therefore preventing a client’s ability to live their best life. Understanding self-worth and reprogramming maladaptive thoughts and behaviors are keys to a positive outcome. She looks forward to participating in a process with clients where everyone comes out a winner. Treatment modalities and techniques utilized are adapted to the needs of the client to best ensure success as a result to treatment. One size does not fit all because we are all unique and special.
