My Approach to Helping

I believe different diagnosis can distort how a person perceives themselves and the world around them. I offer an environment of non-judgment to explore how you perceive yourself and, the most important, why. I want to make sure you understand your true worth.

I have an over 20 year career with experience in ages 6 and up. I offer support on anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder to name a few. I am especially skilled at:

Trauma: Trauma can be the reason people have different diagnosis ideas for themselves, such as depression and bipolar disorder. Trauma has an impact on more than your mental health, it can lead to physical symptoms. I am here to help you find coping mechanisms so you can continue your life without too much impact.

Forgiveness: Forgiveness is an important aspect of your life but most of us don’t fully understand what is involved. I offer the opportunity to fully understand the depth of involvement of yourself goes into forgiving. Different situations call for different outcomes and I am here to help you through it.

Christian Counseling (Upon Client Request): I open my office to all denominations and agnosticsatheists. What I do provide for those who would like to explore their faith is in what ways God can work in your circumstances, how to meditate or how to pray specifically regarding your circumstances, and opening up the idea of self-perception.

In therapy, I believe that sessions are a teaching opportunity. On my end, I teach my clients to react to different stressors in their life and grow to a more positive place. I help that process by making sure to utilize different therapeutic tactics: CBT, DBT, Mindfulness, Positive Psychology, Narrative Therapy, Psycho-Education, Person-Centered Therapy, Play Therapy, and more.

I earned my undergraduate and graduate degrees from North Park University. I have experience in child welfare, maternal case management, and individual therapy. In my free time, I walk and play with my dogs, ride my bike, read a good novel, and listen to music of various genres.
