Hello! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor of Mental Health. I currently work as an Adult Outpatient Therapist but I spent the past two and a half years as an intensive at-home Family Therapist. I have 5+ years experience in the Mental Health field; working as a social worker and counselor. I have worked with clients in the past that were working through past traumas, emotional disturbances, depression, anxiety, family conflict, relationship issues and lack of self-esteem/confidence. I have worked with people of all ages from 6 years old to 65; but I specialize working with adults.
My counseling style is very open, and empathetic. I am very friendly, warm, and optimistic. I'm a big supporter of inspirational quotes, as well as bringing humor into sessions and sharing a meme or two! With that, I am also a realist, so I like to be as objectively direct and honest as possible with my clients during treatment, even when it is challenging or uncomfortable. My goal is always to build a relationship with my clients first to the point that they trust me and our therapeutic relationship to do so. I am very trauma-informed and base my counseling practice on trauma models. I incorporate cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavioral therapy interventions to help support as well. I am Level 1 Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy certified and have two and a half years of training for Eco-systemic Structural Family Therapy under my belt as well.
Therapy is hard-work but the benefits and outcomes are oh so amazing and worth it!
Seeking treatment and the right therapist for you is the first 1st step to healing, and tailoring your life the way you want it to go.
I look forward to working with you on your journey!
