My Approach to Helping

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Certified Child and Adolescent Trauma Professional who enjoys working with families of teenagers. I also work with individuals and greatly appreciate the opportunity to help others. Before becoming a therapist, I was an educator for 11 years and specialized in prenatal through age 5. My therapeutic style is a blend of Narrative and solution-focused approaches. I am a very open-minded individual who thrives when working with diverse groups. I typically work with teenagers and anxiety. I also provide group, couples, and family counseling. I am a Certified Child and Adolescent Trauma Professional and work with trauma compassionately. I am a very open communicator. I am easy to talk to and not easy to get a reaction out of. I tend to be very soft in my communication but will be more blunt if asked. I also like to use humor.

I have wanted to be a therapist since I was 14 years old. What initially drew me at that age was not feeling like my parents understood me and wanting to help other teenagersparents understand and communicate with each other. I was a peer mediator at my school starting at age 8 all the way through graduation at 18. My career did not start in this field, as I was a teacheradministrator for 11 years. During my entire tenure in the education field, I always felt like I wanted to help the families more. This yearning renewed my passion for therapy.

I am very attentive to my client's needs and pick up on their verbal, physical, and facial clues. I am a strong believer that clients should be in charge of their goal-setting. If needed, with this process, I am able to help guide them. During a first session, clients should expect me to review HIPAA, confidentiality, ethical codes, boundaries, goals, desire for therapy, and other logistics. Clients should also expect a "getting to know you" activity.
