EXPERIENCE

Years in Practice: 39 Years

Many individuals seek counseling with me because they have had painful or traumatic experiences that interfere with their ability to live a satisfying life, one filled with meaningful relationships, the ability to experience joy, and the ability to manage life problems skillfully. They often feel stuck and, although they’ve tried hard, they continue to experience problems in relationships and often suffer from anxiety, depression and the effects of trauma. They want to move forward in their lives with hope, confidence and a sense of purpose.My training and experience as a therapist have taught me to approach my work with a deep respect for clients and the experiences that have shaped their thoughts, feelings and coping skills. In my work, I offer clients new perspectives and life skills that make room for growth and allow for greater compassion for themselves and others.I work to create a safe and supportive atmosphere with clients, characterized by respect and compassion. I want you to feel heard and understood. I also seek to understand the thoughts and beliefs that guide your thoughts and behavior. Together, we work to build and strengthen life skills that create room for growth and connection with self and others.

LICENSURE

Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate-MC60985415

EXPERIENCE

My approach to therapy is: holistic, client-centered, collaborative, creative and strength based. I work along side of clients on their journey toward healing, self-awareness and wholeness by exploring, processing and integrating their personal narrative in a: safe, compassionate, empathetic and empowering environment. I draw from several therapeutic theories and techniques including but not limited to: CBT, DBT, ACT, Emotionally Focused, Solution Focused, Structural Family Therapy, Attachment Theory, etc. I am also trained in Lifespan Integration I/II. Will complete the full course this year. I have worked in the helping profession since 2007, serving youth/adolescents, families and adults in various settings. I am experienced in working with a range of issues including but not limited to: mood/thought/personality disorders, trauma/PTSD, stress/anxiety, intellectual disabilities, autism, family conflict, issues around adoption/post-adoption, etc. “The irony is that we attempt to disown our difficult stories to appear more whole or more acceptable, but our wholeness depends on the integration of all our experiences including the falls,” – Brene Brown. I am passionate about the work I do and value the therapeutic relationship. I welcome clients that are ready to take a step toward mental wellness.
