I am licensed in Arkansas with 8 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, coping with addictions, lgbt-related issues, & trauma and abuse. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment.
My personal therapeutic style is eclectic with a focus on the client. I am experienced in a multitude of modalities and draw from these to meet a person where they are. I am honest and empathetic with all folks I work with. It is my goal to treat all persons with dignity, respect, and understanding while encouraging them to look introspectively and re-evaluate their perceptions and ideas about the world around them.
Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started!
