Certified Advanced Accelerated Resolution Therapist
Certified Clinical Trauma Professional
Mental Health Training Specialist
Registered Yoga Teacher
With over 14 years of experience in the field, I bring a variety of experience and skills to my practice. I have experience working with adults, families, couples, groups, and children in multiple roles including in a clinical capacity. I received my Master’s Degree from the University of Nebraska Omaha in 2010 after finishing up my coursework and moving to the Twin Cities in 2009. I have extensive experience working with those who have experienced trauma. My practice is strengthened by having done in-home work while at Hennepin County Child Protection and Adoption/Foster Care, work with involuntary clients, experience testifying in court cases, and experience with severe and persistent mental illness. Ms. Ridgeway works part-time as a Sr. Psychiatric Social Worker on a metro county crisis team where she helps those in the community who are experiencing a psychiatric crisis and need to be assessed for hospitalization. Ms. Ridgeway is also a Clinincal Supervisor for the Board of Social Work and a Registered Yoga Teacher.
Outside of work, running, yoga, traveling, and spending time with my 2 children (ages 10 and 12) are my favorite ways to spend my time.
