Peyton has been with Valor since July 2018 and has an impressive list of credentials:
MS.Ed, LPC, LCDC III, is EMDR Trained, an Expressive Art Therapist, a Dancing Mindfulness Affiliate and is also in the process of a 300 hour certification of MindBody Therapy!
Peyton is also an incredibly talented artist!
When asked what her advice for New Hires would be, she replied: "Have a self-care routine, because this field can be tough and rewarding all at once. On the tough days, remember, when we’re placing expectations upon a client, we’re expecting them to be healthy. All we can do is meet them where they are at and provide compassion and structure while they find their way. So have a self-care routine for the tough days. Cuddle your pets, go for a walk, take a bubble bath, eat a good meal, deep breathe, paint, read, whatever it may be. Each day is new."
I also asked what is on her wish list for Valor, she said: "My wish for Valor these next few years is every person be trained in a trauma-informed approach and to see art supplies all over the place for both employees and clients."
Valor wouldn't be where we are today without your caring dedication to each and every client!
