I am a board certified, licensed professional counselor, located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with a total of 14 years of professional work experience in the mental health field. I worked in a variety of non-profit roles, including responding to mental health crisis situations for youth within the Milwaukee community and facilitated psycho-education groups ranging from sex education, anger management, sexual exploitation prevention to cognitive behavioral groups for depression. I have held leadership positions within non-profits, training and supervising programs for crisis response, commercial sexual exploitation of children mentoring and crisis prevention, and protective placements for adults who are vulnerable due to their disabilities. I work administratively in residential treatment, supervising and utilizing Dialectical Behavior Therapy. I have years of experience doing counseling out of outpatient clinics and within I have 8 years of professional counseling experience.
My experiences in helping individuals ranges with trauma, substance use, co-occurring disorders, stress and anxiety, anger management, & depression. I also have experience working with coping with life changes.
I became interested in counseling because I believe in the power of healing through engaging relationships and the importance of having feedback from someone else who is skillful to help support and guide one's path for a healthier, happier life. I incorporate these beliefs in my work with my individuals to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. I utilize, teach and support mindfulness practice to be present with individuals, empathize in their suffering and guide them through difficult experiences. I believe you are the expert on you, and empowering you to be assertive. It's my role to help you meet the goals you have set for yourself. Therapy is an incredibly rewarding experience, and yet it is very difficult. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started! When you are ready, its a journey we can experience together.
