Life doesn’t make any sense without interdependence. We need each other, and the sooner we learn that, the better for us all. -Erik Erikson.

Welcome! Therapy is a key step in beginning the healing process. The key to healing, both emotional and psychological, is creating a relationship with ourselves and others that helps foster compassion and hope. Everyone is different and therapy is not a one size fits all approach. I strive to provide a meaningful and thoughtful approach with each client. I provide a stable and non-judgmental environment in order to help develop the therapeutic relationship in order to travel through the journey of counseling together.

 

I offer a client center, existential based approach to allow clients to explore the meaning in life, self-awareness, freedom of choice, care, honesty, trust, autonomy, personal responsibility, and self-actualization. I also integrate components of motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy and EMDR. The World Health Organization and other professional organizations identify two evidence-based modalities of therapy to work with trauma. One is Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). I have been trained in EMDR, and I am currently working on finishing my consultation for my training. Upon completion, I will work towards becoming a certified EMDR therapist by EMDRIA.

Since beginning my journey into counseling, I have had the opportunity to work in a variety of places including working in an alternative school for teenagers, working with the incarcerated population and working in different outpatient facilities. I meet with clients individually and in a group setting. I worked with a variety of mental health concerns as well ranging from anxiety, stress management, emotional regulation, depression, bi-polar, trauma, grief, self-esteem, adjusting to life transition, and substance abuse.

I am qualified to provide individual counseling to clients with mental health and substance abuse concerns. Currently I offer individual therapy, in which I support and empower my clients to choose solutions that best support their goals. Counseling sessions may bring awareness to patterns in the client’s relationships, and educate clients on decision-making and changes that
can relate to the client’s life.

Therapy should be a safe place for self-expression, exploration of feelings and a place to learn
more about yourself. I look forward to connecting and helping you on your journey to healing!
