Member Corner: Tricia Woodliff, Clinical Counselor/Supervisor and Faculty, University of Nevada, Reno

I have been a supporter of ZERO TO THREE for years. The information and training I receive is invaluable to my career.

Greetings everyone! My name is Tricia Woodliff. I am a clinical professional counselor/supervisor as well as faculty at the University of Nevada, Reno where I run the internship clinic for our marriage and family counseling students and teach classes for our program. I will be finishing up my doctorate in Counselor Education and Supervision this fall.

Before I was in academia, I spent 15 years as an early childhood/infant mental health counselor. My interest in early childhood services began with my clinical internship where I was a part of a team setting up a Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics (NMT Model) preschool program for children who had experienced significant trauma. I could not have asked for a more influential internship. Because of that opportunity, my entire career has been focused on the impact of trauma on very young children. I have primarily worked with children who are in the foster care system and am passionate about their care. Because of a shortage of infant mental health (IMH) providers in Nevada, I went back to school to become a counselor educator with the intention of expanding the field of IMH. I am part of state advisory groups for the expansion of IMH, and my dream is to create an IMH certificate program at University of Nevada, Reno.
