About me

I love working with someone to make positive changes in their lives. We go to therapy to make changes and, as your therapist, I am fully invested in helping you make those changes to live your most meaningful life. I have seen people who believed it was hopeless, felt helpless and lost move towards feeling meaningful and inspired. When you feel like you cannot hold hope, I will hold it for you. I will be there to help you find your best self and feel fulfilled.
I specialize in working with teens and adults, starting at age 13, who experience a variety of issues, from low self-esteem to major trauma. I enjoy working with teenagers, developing the relationship that teenagers need to experience positive changes. I am accepting and relaxed, so clients do not feel judged or embarrassed. I create an atmosphere of trust and camaraderie with clients to help them develop their goals and move forward with changes in their emotions and behavior.
I have been working in the mental health field for 22 years, providing therapy for the last eight years as a LPC-MHSP. My main treatment style is Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy (EMDR) along with a Person-Centered Approach and CBT. In utilizing EMDR, I help you connect your emotions and thoughts, make the memories of your trauma feel behind you. After a trauma, you may cognitively understand you are not responsible but emotionally feel guilty. EMDR gives the client a sense of freedom from that guilt or sense of responsibility. As a result, they no longer suffer from the worry and depression brought on by trauma.
I utilize CBT and person-centered therapy to help you recognize how your thoughts, emotions and body are connected. We will explore how to change your thinking, which can change how you feel, moving towards a more positive mindset.
I also utilize the skills-based positive approach, focusing on the client’s strengths and what they are doing right, building upon those strengths to help them change maladaptive behaviors and creating the best version of themselves.
