Tonight's special guest is Vicki Polin, MA, LPCC, LCPC, from the Dancing Tree Wellness Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico. A Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) with over 30 years of experience working in the trauma field in various capacities, Vicki has worked with individuals who want to learn how to empower themselves, along with working with couples and families. Her experience includes working with adults who are looking to over come a full array of issues, such as overcoming traumatic events from childhood and also as adults. Over the years Vicki has provided assistance to survivors of sexual violence (both male and female survivors), domestic violence, political torture, bullying, life transitions and those experiencing health issues. She's also provided counseling to professionals experiencing burn-out, compassion fatigue and vicarious victimization. Vicki is forming a new FREE Networking Group for adult survivors of childhood trauma. This group is open to adult survivors of childhood trauma (emotional, psychological, physical and sexual abuse). The NETWORK offers survivors a place to share ideas, connect with others and learn new skills. The Networking Group will begin December 1, 2014. My goal as a psychotherapist is to work with individuals, couples and families who are having difficulty adjusting, experiencing depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, and or dissociation, in response to life changing events." Vicki explains. "As a therapist I do my best to assist my clients on their journey to discover healthy coping mechanisms so that they are able to overcome obstacles -- making it possible for them to live happy, productive and fulfilling lives."
