I am a licensed clinical therapist with over 14 years of experience working with children, teens, families, couples, and adults. I have worked with clients struggling with depression, anxiety, PTSD, addiction, and trauma. I have experience in helping families and couples resolve conflict and have worked closely with clients who have been sexually and physically abused. I also have experience working with clients who self-harm and struggle with suicide ideation.
My counseling style is person centered which means that I meet the client where they are at. I am non-judging and express concern, support, and compassion for all my clients. I act as a guide to help you reach your therapeutic goals. I use a cognitive behavioral approach as well as solution focused, and humanistic approach. I recognize that every client has their own unique needs and goals so I first like to establish therapeutic rapport and from there I determine which approach is best for that client. I understand and respect that the client is very much in charge of their treatment.
I understand that it is a huge step to seek help and happiness, congratulations! If you are ready for this journey, I am very excited to help guide you towards improving your mental health goals.
Additional areas of focus: Addictions, LGBT, Relationship issues, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Eating disorders, Sleeping disorders, Parenting issues, Anger management, Self esteem, Bipolar disorder, Coaching, Compassion fatigue, ADHD
