June General Meeting Special Guest: Nicole Twaalfhoven

Nicole Twaalfhoven joined us for our June General Membership meeting talking about crisis management and mental health. This was a great presentation with a Q&A session afterwards. The slides that were presented are attached for any future reference.

Nicole started her career as a childhood development specialist and family/couples counselor. She is trained in cognitive-behavioral therapy, and specializes in mindfulness based practices and trauma informed care. Her philosophy about counseling is that it is a collaborative relationship between counselor and client, working on improving habits, feelings, and behavior in a way that supports their lifestyle.  Nicole most recently works for the Greater Washington Psychiatry and Counseling Center in the areas of mental health treatment, suicide prevention and trauma.
