What weird times we live in. Congratulations on taking a step toward advocating for yourself. I hope this brief about myself helps you in making your decision with working together. We will work to find or reclaim what is important to you.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Montana, practicing since 2018. I use a solution focused therapy approach to help strengthen the courage and confidence of others and their responsibility toward change. I will remain open and kind while being curious about you, your story, where you come from, who you identify as, and how you've come to terms with seeking support during these times. My approach is creative, compassionate, and honest, providing space and time for you to share freely. I will work to provide structure and goal-oriented ideas as needed. I am always open for feedback and direction you believe would be more helpful as we progress in therapy.
I seek to familiarize myself with an individual's immediate needs and wants. Following this, I work toward discovering ways to better the overall wellbeing of the individual in the system and environment they operate in. I prioritize my focus to building trust and honesty with providing time and space to discuss individuality, successes, worries, and celebrations in life. I will remain curious to better know you.
Recent therapy experiences have involved adults, families, and children based out of a school and emergency response setting. Over time, I've worked to balance an emergency first response role with behavioral health work. I went to the University of Montana for both my undergraduate and graduate degrees. Most of my work has been in rural settings with individuals, families and children.
