About Me

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist. I am trained in trauma focused therapy to help those who have experienced trauma in their lives and may have a diagnosis of PTSD. I have worked in a residential substance abuse treatment center as well as with inmates in jail. My approach is to meet the client where he or she is, meaning what the needs are at the moment without judgement or preconceived ideas. I use an eclectric approach to fit the needs of the client since everyone have different needs and responds to different treatment modalities.

I have only had three sessions with her to date, but already she has helped me open up about things I never even shared with previous counselors or therapists. She is very attentive and really tries to gear her methods specifically to me, versus what has worked for others. Wonderful, sweet personality, and very easy to talk to
