I am licensed as a mental health professional in Nebraska and New Mexico (living in New Mexico) with seven years of experience. I have worked with clients on the gender spectrum, individually and in groups, with a wide range of concerns, including: trauma, PTSD, domestic violence, sexual trauma, LGBTQ+, depression, coping strategies, grief, anxiety and relationship issues. My BA in Psychology and Russian is from the University of Oregon and my MA in Counseling is from the University of New Mexico.
My counseling approach is integrative and begins with the core of person centered therapy in addition to aspects of solution focused therapy and at times elements of cognitive behavioral therapy. I believe that counseling is an opportunity for me to join you in the process of finding what is and isn't working for you and supporting you in creating change to help you navigate life with confidence. I see my role as helping you identify and work on your goals for counseling, increase your self awareness, self understanding and self compassion.
Additional areas of focus: LGBT, Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Self esteem, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder, ADHD, Domestic Violence, Expats, Family of Origin Issues, First Responder Issues, Immigration Issues, Multicultural Concerns, Post-traumatic Stress, Sexual Assault and Abuse, Women's Issues
Clinical approaches: Client-Centered Therapy, Trauma-Focused Therapy
