I enjoy helping clients address issues through building on the strengths that they hold. I typically work with adolescents (12- 17) and young adults (18 - 35) who are struggling with depression, anxiety, difficulty dealing with distressing emotions, and suicidal thoughts and behaviors.
My areas of specialization include working with those who are having suicidal thoughts and/or ideations and in working with LGBTQ+ people and those struggling with sexuality and gender identity. I also believe in creating a safe space for each client and am trained in providing Trauma Informed Care.
I am trained in two different types of interventions. I am trained in Cognitive-Behavioral interventions - this concentrates on how thoughts and behaviors are connected. I am also trained on Solutions-Focused interventions which involves identifying attainable goals and the steps needed to achieve them.
- Stress, Anxiety
I also have experience in Family conflicts, Trauma and abuse, Parenting issues, Self esteem, Career difficulties
